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.
