The New Video and List Menu

Over the last several months this web site has been paying attention to both dance and music videos to the point that we thought such videos deserved their own menu. Technically there is still some coding to include to really tie in this website's discography with both dance and music videos but this will occur in due time. This menu will also be the home for the occasional times we analyze a video in a script. In addition, we have been building up lists of dances from various soures. All of this is now combined here for you to enjoy.

History Menu

It was not the original intention of this web site to try to document the history of Israeli dancing in the Philadelphia area. Of course, we're really not sure anymore what the original intent of this website was, but, apparently, there are a set of scripts roughly dealing with the history of Israeli dance in the city. So, we have bundled these together, with others that are more historical in nature, in this section for easy access for the limited number of readers interested in this.

Secondary Menu

Workshop/Trip Menu

This website has been the recipient of multiple photographs from local Israeli dancers participating in workshops and trips. The scripts that have been written on these adventures have been intermixed with other material presented on this web site. The following menu congregates these scripts and our editors hope it will make it easier to navigate this website.

Wilmingon/Arden Menu (including Newark)

Over the last few years, this web site has followed the Wilmington Israeli dance group (situated in the Arden Gild Hall) as it has performed over the years at the Arden Fair, an annual event scheduled on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. We've opened this section to present the scripts available on this web site that have followed this group through the years. We've also included script(s) from the Newark International dance sessions as many Delaware dsancers attend both sessions.


Cherry Hill Field Trip Menu

From 2006 through 2012, under the auspices of the Cherry Hill Tuesday night Israeli dance leader, Naomi, the session, augmented with other israeli dancers from the greater Philadelphia area, had given Israeli dance performances at several retirement and senior centers in the area. These demonstrations became known as the Cherry Hill field trips. Below is the list of these trips in reverse chronological order and next to each designation is the script that covered it. An historical discussion of the Cherry Hill session and how it related to the CHFTs can be found by clicking here.

Each script (including the historical analysis just mentioned) has used more and more aspects of Javascript coding to place text and pictures in specific ways on your screen. These scripts work best under high speed internet using the latest browsers that allow for HTML's CSS extensions and the latest interpretations of how DOM objects are used in scripts. Do not attempt to access the latest scripts without a high speed internet connection.

2008-2010 Script Menu

This web site went live on December 7th, 2008 contributing to another Dec 7th that will live in infamy. The first year, encompassing the end of 2008 and through 2009, was a year of experiment in creating scripts and apparently perfecting ways of boring, insulting and angering readers at which apparently we have become adept. We extended this dubious expertise throughout 2010. By the present time, these 2008-2010 scripts probably have been superceded by more advanced scripts describing some of these same events happening in later years. In addition some of these scripts pertain to unique and/or discontinued events such as Hora Aviv. Below, are several of these 2008-2010 scripts
