Have You Heard about Ga Ga?


Israel is home to several classical ballet and contemporary dance troupes, with the latter gaining worldwide acknowledgement. The works of Ohad Naharin in Batsheva Dance Company as well as the international success of other Israeli modern ensembles received much attention. Furthermore, as an immigrant country with unique history and Arabic influences, you can find here many ensembles which focus on ethnic or folklore dance.

Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance is one of the oldest and best arts institutions in Israel. The academy offers visiting students the chance to take classes and seminars in various styles from classical ballet to modern Jazz, from choreography to improvisation.
