Dafna has been playing (since ever..:) and working with touch and
movement for over 10 years, dancing, performing and teaching Contact,
Improvisation, and Yoga. She studied with Danya Elraz, Michael Shachrur
and Orly Portal. She is a certified Speech therapist working with young
children, and a certified Biodynamic craniosacral therapist, working with
adults and babies. She loves movement and stillness, how they exist one
within the other, and is in great appreciation of the combination of both.
Visual Artist. Performer. Movement Researcher and Dance Teacher.
Since an early age, Noa studied and practiced various methods of dance. She met CI in 2003 and has been living the improvisation ever since - practicing and exploring.
Noa has been teaching dance for over 10 years focusing on improvisation, CI, movement research, as well as the creative process. Her teaching is influenced by Feldenkrais Method. She graduated from the Visual Theater School, has a B.A in Dance and is a current M.A student in Choreography and Dance at the Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem. She’s a practitioner of Ilan lev Method and Feldenkrais Method.
Since 2002, Noa has created as well as performed in dance and performance projects in Israel and around the world. For the past 3 years, Noa has organized and produced CI workshops and annual events in an ecological community- “Shdemama”. Since 2014, she is a member of the Israeli Contact Association, and participates in producing the Israeli International Contact Festival.
Noa is interested in engaging with the environment through dance and how to be delicate, efficient, and diverse. She explores the crossroads between the community organism, nature, and movement research.
