This past Tuesday I taught the dance Mama Sheli by Nurit Melamed. This dance has been taught in other groups in the DC area and has gained popularity in Israel and around the world. It was time to bring it into the Tuesday night repertoire!
This past week I introduced a new dance by Michael Barzelai called Lean Lachzor. This dance was taught at the Machol Maryland workshop a few weeks ago. Here’s a video of Michael demonstrating the dance at Machol Maryland!
This past Tuesday I taught a new dance by Dudu Barzelai called Keren Shemesh. The song was very popular while I was in Israel this past summer. The video was taken at the Machol Maryland workshop from last weekend, so you may be able to recognize some Tuesday night dancers there! I will be reviewing the dance again this week.
This past week, Ellis taught the dance Inshallah Hashana by Michael Barzelai. This dance was from 2016, however, I had never taught it on a Tuesday night. Since Michael Barzelai is coming to Machol Maryland this week, it was a great opportunity to introduce this dance!
This past Tuesday I taught a “classic” (from 1997) dance by Dudu Barzelai – Debka Hilit. I had not taught this before on Tuesday nights and wanted to add it to our repertoire. Here’s a video of Chen Shporen teaching and demonstrating the dance!
Our annual Israeli Dance Party on XMas Eve is happening TONIGHT – Saturday, December 24 – from 8pm to 1:30am. I am hosting the party at Ohr Kodesh with Moshe and Ken, It will b great to get the DC Israeli Dance community together tonight.
This past week I taught an older dance that I saw a few times while dancing in Israel this past Summer – Kachol. This dance was done in a few sessions in the DC area in the past but never introduced on Tuesday nights.
Upon returning from our holiday break, I taught an older dance that I saw while I danced in Israel over the summer – Shemesh Aduma by Eyal Ozeri from 2005. I know that some of the other groups in the DC area have taught this dance in the past so I wanted to add it into the Tuesday night repertoire!
This past Tuesday was our first week back from the summer break. I introduced a new dance by Dudu Barzelai that I had seen in Israel and also learned during Gvanim! Here’s a video of Dudu demonstrating this dance:
After our summer hiatus, Tuesday night dancing at Ohr Kodesh returns TONIGHT!!! I will review Ima Im Hayiti Yachol and Yalla during the first hour and then Tzipor Zahav later in the evening (around 8:45pm to 9pm). We will be dancing both in-person and on Zoom.
This past Tuesday I taught the dance Even Al Even, choreographed by Michael Barzelai and Ilai Szpiezak. Here is a video of them presenting their dance at the recent Israeli Dance Camp that was held in Cancun, Mexico!
