Where you will live & dance & have fun

The International Dance Village represents the life project and dream of holocaust-survivor and company founder, Yehudit Arnon.  Since 1970 it has been the heart and home of the internationally acclaimed Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company.  It is also home to KCDC’s Second Company  KCDC 2.  Arnon’s vision has developed into a thriving center for arts and culture in the north of Israel with the intention of promoting, cultivating and developing dance, arts, and culture worldwide.

Her work is now continued by the visionary Artistic Director of the company, Rami Be’er.

“The last four weeks at Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company’s Summer Intensive have been beyond incredible. It’s has made me fall in love with dance all over again. All of the teachers were phenomenal, especially the Second Company dancers, who gave me amazing advice and words of encouragement.”

“The experience at KCDC’s Summer Intensive was amazing! Everyone there, between the other participants and the staff, were so nice and the teachers are extremely talented. The level of dance of KCDC is very high, advanced, and very good quality. The dance repertoire of KCDC is absolutely beautiful and fun to dance. Nowadays in Mexico I simply can’t stop dancing those choreographies that I learned.”

“After four years that I attended Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company’s Summer Intensive program in Kibbutz Ga’aton, I can say that this is the best thing to do as a young dancer or dance student during your summer break!  Each summer, I met so many new friends from Israel and from around the world including China, the U.S., Switzerland, Ireland and more. Meeting with people of different cultures where everyone does what they truly love (in our case, dance) is fun and experiential.”
