About the Program:
The Galilee Dance Village is considered one of the most prestigious of its kind in Israel. Located in Kibbutz Ga'aton, The Galilee Dance Village of the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company offers summer courses geared towards participants 15-18 years old who have been dancing for at least 3 years in a professional studio. This year, the village is extending its activities to students from Israel and around the globe as part of the Tzofim Summer Dance. Tzofim Summer Dance is a branch of the Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. -Tzofim, an organization in America focused on integrating Israeli and American youth through various cultural and academic activities. The program is geared towards young dancers who are interested in furthering their dance abilities in a special and intensive setting that combines dancing with other social activities.

The first day of the workshop will be focused on dividing participants into groups of five levels based on dance ability. Along with Israeli friends, you will participate in courses including high levels of classic ballet, point classes for those who are capable and have experience, modern dancing, and jazz, with the most professional dance teachers from Israel and around the world. Repertoire classes, composition classes, theater sessions, percussion classes, Pilates, sessions with nutritionists, dance films, and experiential and unique meetings with the professional dancers of the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company are just some of the aspects involved in the program. The students will join a class with dancers for a day of rehearsals, and of course, will have a chance to watch the company's show.

The program is divided into two weeks of dance workshops and a week of touring Israel. During the first 2 weeks, participants will have dance classes from morning to afternoon. At the end of each day, participants will enjoy group activities, various workshops including art and music lessons, pool time, and other exciting activities. During the weekends, the participants from abroad will be hosted by the Israeli members of the program for Shabbat.
The final week will focus on touring Israel in the North, in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The Dance Village is located in Kibbutz Ga'aton where participants will be staying during the first two weeks.
During the final week, participants will be traveling around Israel and will be sleeping in hotels and youth hostels around Israel.
The participants will be provided with meals every day.

The most amazing course ever!
"This is the second time in a row that I spent my summer here. The course is two amazing weeks long and I feel like I gained so much during those two weeks. There is nothing more enjoyable than dancing all day long. I feel that because of the classes offered I became a much better dancer. The teachers are professional and the classes are fun and enjoyable. We learned a lot about the company's repertoire. We had great modern and classic dance lessons and a lot of other classes just for fun and our spirits. The Kibbutz is quiet and awesome. The experience that I got during this course was amazing. I got to know lots of new people.  We spent lots of time at the pool, and watched exciting DVDs in the evenings. Our crew of counselors was outstanding. After two summers here, in the Galilee Dance Village, I felt like I gained so much from the courses and I will definitely come back."
