Dance Journey dancers have an amazing opportunity to take part in ‘Nitzotzot’ where they are given the time, space, and tools to create an original choreography. Dancers are given unlimited use and access to KCDC’s professional dance studios along with professional guidance throughout the creation process. Ultimately, they work with professional lighting design and present their work on KCDC’s main theater.

A growing number of Dance Journey’s past participants are now dancing in KCDC’s main and second companies and have received contracts with other professional dance companies in Israel and around the world.  The Dance Journey program offers dancers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for professional development and job networking with other Israeli companies.
