Kamea Dance Company

Kamea Dance Company, the “lucky charm” of Israeli dance, has captured audiences worldwide for the last two decades.

The company is recognized for its unique style that combines strong dramatic themes and intense virtuosic movement. Artistic director Tamir Ginz creates a richly layered world in his colourful and expressive choreography.

Kamea is a home to 24 versatile and passionate dancers, Israelis side by side with dancers from all over the world, with unique personalities who bring their creative talent to the works.

Based in Beer Sheva, the capital of the Negev, Kamea tours extensively in Israel and abroad whilst enjoying acclaim from audiences and critics alike.

The rich repertoire includes works by internationally renowned guest choreographers.

Given that the company sees it as a mission to offer cultural opportunities to a wide array of public, Kamea is also devoted to raising a young audience with special shows geared to youth.  Moreover, the company holds educational projects and workshops in schools, dance departments and studios throughout Israel.

Kamea works alongside with the Bat-Dor Beer-Sheva Municipal Dance Center, the largest professional dance school in Israel that has trained the initial core of the Company’s dancers.

Kamea was founded in 2002 following the joint initiative of Daniella Schapira, at the time director of Bat Dor Beer Sheva and choreographer Tamir Ginz as the resident company of the Bat-Dor Beer Sheva Dance Center.
