'We are dancing our life here'

Israel's contemporary dance scene is gaining worldwide attention, due in large part to Tel Aviv's Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater.

Tel Aviv's Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre ( has proven that the contemporary Israeli dance scene is about much more than folk dancing.

Host of the Batsheva ( and Inbal Pinto & Avshalom Pollak ( dance troupes, the center offers more than 750 performances each year and was awarded the coveted Israel Prize in 2010 for its global contribution to the performing arts.

"There's so much desire here to do, to create," says director/chief choreographer Yair Vardi.

The center was founded by a British family in 1989 and has become a world-class center for showcasing the talents of both well-known and emerging talents, foreign and domestic.

"We have to be the best. We have to be original. We have to be the first. And I believe that's what we are," says Vardi.
