Batsheva Dance and MATAN (the Hebrew acronym for Arts and Culture Project for Youth) have announced auditions for Dance Reserve, a program aiming to identify and train talented dancers. It is the first of its kind in the country. Employing its reputation for nurturing excellence, Batsheva Dance has the tools to train the next generation of dancers. MATAN has been seeking out excellence among youth countrywide since its establishment in 1981. On October 27, 15 young dancers between the ages of 16 and 23 from all over the country will be chosen from those auditioning. They will embark on a nine-month course, learning dances by Ohad Naharin and studying the GaGa dance language that is the heart of his work. During vacations thereafter and through next summer, they will be given further enrichment courses. Matan and Batsheva Dance personnel will run and supervise the courses.
