Teva Pharmaceutical Industries is offering grants to eight choreographers to encourage creative dance efforts this year and contribute to arts and culture.
Four of the recipients - Arkadi Zaides, Maya Levy, Ronit Ziv and Aviv Ivgi - are being awarded NIS 40,000 each in the "Creativity and Community" category to advance dance projects in the periphery, according to a press release put out Sunday.
The other four will receive NIS 12,000 each for original dance projects.
According to Ayala Miller, head of public relations at Teva, "the program, which is running for its fourth year, was conceived out of Teva's belief that a healthy society is also a creative society, and therefore it is necessary to support arts and culture as well."
