Where to Dance, Dance Music, Dance Descriptions, Dance Videos, etc.

I started out in the late 1970's using a record player and LP's and 45's.
Through the years I converted to cassette tapes and compact discs. I
currently play wav, mp2 and mp3 files on a computer using a software
program designed for DJ's called DJPower. If you are interested in learning more about the latest DJ computer technology contact me or visit www.djpower.com.

I maintain a computer database and an extensive library of historical
documents, newsletters, dance notations, lyrics to songs, as well as the music (on records, tapes, CD's, and on my computer). The collection is focused on Israeli music and dance because that's my specialty, but my library of international materials is also large.

If you're looking for information, music, dance notations, etc., contact me and let me know what you're looking for. If I don't have it, I'll try to find out where you can get it.
