Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company (KCDC)
, one of the leading dance companies in the world, is identified with the work of Artistic Director Rami Be’er whose exclusive and unique choreographic character has become the company’s trademark both in Israel and abroad. With its technically strong and physically eclectic cast of dancers and its dynamic sensibility, KCDC characterizes Israeli dance at its best and performs regularly in the most respected theaters and at leading festivals worldwide.
KCDC was founded in 1973 by the late Yehudit Arnon who laid the foundation for today’s thriving International Dance Village which was developed and continues to evolve into a first-class center for dance under the leadership of Rami Be’er and KCDC’s management and staff.
KCDC is situated in a most extraordinary and beautiful location at the International Dance Village in Kibbutz Ga'aton, Israel. The International Dance Village is the heart and home of the company and is comprised of a total of nearly 80 Israeli and international dancers. These dancers make up KCDC’s main company, KCDC's second company (KCDC 2), and KCDC’s 5-month & 10-month international 'Dance Journey
' study abroad program . Each summer KCDC also hosts one of the world's biggest Summer Intensive
dance programs; a 2-6 week program for international and Israeli high school and university age dancers and dance students. The International Dance Village is open to visitors from around the world throughout the year.
