Intro To Davidic Dance - My Dance Steps Series

Alright, I'll admit it! I have been HORRIBLE at keeping the series on the dance steps here on my blog going. I do apologize. I just didn't realize how insane the amount of work would be that I'd have to put into it. The videos themselves take at least 5-10 hours each to create. Then to put together a blog post explaining everything just wasn't possible for me. So I decided to finish the videos first and then simply link the entire series to the Eiklor Essence blog.

So here ya go everyone! A comprehensive video series that breaks down every step for you to learn at home at your leisure. I am not completely finished but only have a couple videos to go, so I will be soon! I have many more series planned so stay tuned for them!!!

DIY PVC Pipe Sukka

I am not going to go into detail over how or why we made this Sukka because most of that is explained in the video below. I will say this though, you can use this thang for virtually any kind of elegant event you'd like.  For example you can use it as a chupah (gazebo), you can use a tarp over the top of it as a covering for a picnic, you can simply use it to enhance some special decorations you have...get creative with it! So check out the video below and then grab the supplies you need listed beneath it.

Miter Box: https://amzn.to/300O3SB
Sheer White Curtains (8 total): https://amzn.to/34OasBn
   *NOTE: I learned the hard way that not all curtains have a big enough opening to fit around the
     PVC pip when you hang it. I know for sure these fit so I highly recommend them. If you want to
     go with a different curtain be sure the openings at the top are big enough to slide over the pipes!

Fairy Lights: https://amzn.to/2O0gNnn
   *Here are some colorful ones too: https://amzn.to/301Uh4M
   **I also found this lovely LED Fairy Lights Curtain with the lights already built into it. I am not sure
      if it will fit over the pipes, but if not you could probably play around with curtain clips?
The exact sizes and measurements of the PVC pipe and elbows are not available online so you will have to go to Lowes to find them in person.

The GREAT thing about this creation is that it doesn't need to be JUST for Sukkot! You can use it for a wedding as well! Tell us what you think in the comments!
