We are pleased to present you high-level international courses to become an Israeli folk dance teacher. The course is provided by Israeli choreographers renowned both in Israel and internationally. 


Course background

Folk dances are an important part of the tradition of the State of Israel. Its many origins are drawn from the different cultures and social characteristics of the countries where the Jews lived, which over the years have become the dances of a large number of dancers across the country and representative of Israeli culture.

Over time, a multitude of styles related to different periods, geographical areas and different ethnic backgrounds have developed. The different dance styles representing the cultural backgrounds of new immigrants to Israel who brought Hasidic, Yemeni, Kurdish, Druze, Bedouin, Arab, Debka, Pioneer and more dances have enriched the diversity of Israeli dances.

The course places importance on the transmission of Israeli cultural heritage and emphasizes that students have the task of transmitting the Israeli cultural heritage to future generations of dancers and that this transfer must be faithful to the source and to the historical and cultural context to which it corresponds.

We emphasize that folk dance conveys cultural heritage and that folk dance movements and steps and choreography should take into account the cultural context and be in harmony with the ethnic style of music, lyrics and story related to the song. .
