Bidi Dworkin

Bidi Dworkin is jazz-folk vocalist whose earliest performances were as a folk singer in coffee houses throughout New England. Intrigued by the dynamic interplay of form and freedom which exists at the core of modern dance, she attended NYU and received her master’s degree in Dance Education, performing professionally with the Nancy Meehan Dance Company from 1980-1986.


After moving to a quiet valley in rural Vermont, she continued her movement studies, becoming a yoga instructor. Bidi has received advanced certification in New York City and India, skillfully leading classes and retreats since 1993. Especially moved by devotional song, Bidi embraces ancient Sanskrit chants as well as Hebrew melodies, and has led her community in the High Holiday morning services for over twenty-five years.



Her debut album, Beautiful Souvenirs (2020) was arranged by legendary jazz vocalist Jay Clayton. Bidi’s musical journey has been enriched by her mentors including Laurie Antonioli, Theo Bleckmann, Jay Clayton, Ayelet Rose Gottlieb and Rhiannon. She is certified through Somatic Voicework™ - The Lovetri Method, and teaches adults of all ages, online and in person. She loves working with beginners as well as seasoned vocalists.

She is grateful to have received support from the Vermont Arts Council, where she is on the Creative Aging Teaching Artist roster as well as on New England Foundation's Creative Ground registry.
