The annual SummerDance festival, called Maholohet in Hebrew (a play on the words for “dance” and “hot”), will take place from July 1-August 31 and boast 84 performances.
One of the world’s most prestigious youth ballet competitions, the Youth America Grand Prix, will include an Israeli: the 11-year-old Gaya Bommer.
A new generation of Israeli choreographers made their mark at the No Ballet competition in Germany.
Located next to a swarm of bobbing fishing boats, this enormous hangar is not your typical destination for a dance performance. Yet the members of the Choreographers Society have lured a mix of devoted dance fans and less seasoned audience members to the Jaffa Port over the last several weeks.
The Home Port festival was initiated by the Amuta (which translates as the Choreographers Association or the Choreographers Society), an umbrella organization for fifty-four independent choreographers who draw from styles as varied as contemporary dance, flamenco, and belly dance.
