Karmiel Dance Festival

Last night the dancers had an opportunity to enjoy the festival in Karmiel.  We got to enjoy dinner, dancing, music and see the tons of people from all over come together in this city for a week of pure dance.  People were actually camping overnight on the grounds of the festival.

This is the 25th anniversary of the Karmiel Dance Festival and it consists of  three exceptional days and nights of Dance in all different styles including folk, ballet, hip hop, jazz and more.  There are 100 performances with 10.000 dancers from Israel and abroad and 250 thousand visitors are expected to participate in the Festival.
