Celebrating its 25th year, the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance and Theater has built itself a permanent home within Israeli culture. The accomplished cultural landmark of Tel Aviv sits in one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, Neveh Tzedek, and serves as the home and anchor for contemporary dance in Israel.

In 1989, out of “a need to establish a home in Israel for the art of dance and all its styles and streams,” several parties joined together – the Dellal Family Foundation, the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality, the Tel Aviv Development Fund and the Education and Culture Ministry – to establish the center as an eternal memorial for the late Suzanne Dellal, the daughter of Zehava and Jack Dellal.
