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.
