MentorshipProgram for Dancers

Toolkit is a mentorship program in which four experienced professional dancers meet regularly with 20 young dancers at different ages and stages of their careers for six months.

The mentors hold meetings with the participants once every two weeks, providing tools, knowledge from their extensive experience, and assistance in the ongoing conduct of the field from a professional, practical, and mental point of view. There are combined meetings for all participants on injury prevention and body maintenance, writing submissions and resumes, and showreel building.

Toolkit is artistically managed by Tamar Sonn and Nitsan Margaliot and was originally developed together with Laure Delion Paz. The program is subsidized by the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo.

Perspectives from the Field
Residency for Dancers

Perspectives from the Field is a residency for dancers to deepen and expand the dancer-performer practice, independent of the choreographer. The residency invites dancers to investigate and articulate their individual practice and promote a dialogue that stems from the dancer's perspective, body of knowledge and experience, in dialogue with other forms of knowledge.


The program was held in cooperation and with the support of Seminar HaKibbutzim (2021) and Kelim Choreography Center (2022).

Artists of  2021: Shiraz Dagan, Naomi Katz, Danny Neuman, Eleanor Fuchs, Maya Schwartz

Artists of 2022: Ido Gidron, Tomer Giat, Gaya Lieberman, Hila Regev, Italy Meir, Nitzan Nisimov, Shachar Cohen, Keshet Ben Naim

Programs for ​Choreographers

Choreographers Circle
An artistic accompaniment cohort

Choreographers Circle is an artistic accompaniment program that offers long-term support focused on the development of new dance works and strategic career development. The program supports a cohort of selected choreographers over the course of a year through individual mentorship and artistic accompaniment alongside group engagement and feedback.

Intended for choreographers who want to build and engage in a challenging and collegial community, Choreographers Circle serves as a supportive framework for broad research and creative/choreographic imagining, artistic risk-taking, reflection, and future-building, offering choreographers a rare opportunity for deep and ongoing exchange with their peers. 


Choreographers Circle provides each choreographer with private mentorship alongside a curated program of group meetings that include shared showings and feedback sessions, discussions, and private lectures and workshops with figures from the professional fields of dance and culture. The program accompanies each artist through their artistic process for the year, serving to support their existing commitments without the expectation of a finished product.

Choreographers Circle is artistically directed by Sarah Holcman, who serves as a mentor to each artist and facilitator of group meetings. Each choreographer is granted a bank of hours with which they can work with Sarah as an artistic advisor for the creation of a work as well as general career goals and challenges.

Artists of the Choreographers Circle 2023:
Andrea Costanzo Martini, Annabelle Dvir, Olivia Court Mesa, Roni Chadash, and Talia Beck
