Come Dance With Us!!

Imagine a performing arts program that built Jewish girls and women as people first. A program where girls and women found their place to truly fit in and share the vulnerabilities and strengths that make them who they really are. A performing arts program that taught not just technique, but communication and teamwork skills that women and girls would translate into better marriages, better parenting, and greater success at school and at work. Imagine a performing arts program that developed true creativity, original thinking, and self-expression built on confidence from deep inside. Imagine a performing arts program that felt like a family, the best kind of family, a family that nurtures and supports and plays.

This is Rachel Factor’s Jerusalem Center for Performing Arts.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance allows for bodies of all physical capability to participate and to gain from technique. The form also encourages a deepening of one’s understanding of who they are, of how they engage with others, and of their role in this world.You will work with techniques to explore the wonders of our bodies and the breadth of possibility they hold. You will practice release technique (a technique that protects the body by finding ease in movement), floorwork, partnering, improvisation, and even some choreographic tools. In her class you will fit in your workout, find time for mindfulness, challenge yourself, deepen your relationship to yourself, others, and Hashem, and finally, you will find within you your own personal way of expressing your right to dance.
