the green house.
The Greenhouse is a 6 days journey of deep emersion into the practice of CI.
With a full schedule of Intensive Workshops, Classes, Jams and other surprises, facilitated by some of the best CI teachers from Israel and abroad, the Greenhouse offers a unique opportunity for learning and practicing CI.
It takes place in the beautiful Kibbutz Kfar Blum at the northern tip of the Galilee, north of Israel, by the bank of the Jordan river and surrounded with green mountains.
This retreat-like environment invites personal exploration and growth through sharing the dance as well as community living.
Together we create a safe-space and invite our body and mind to shine, to dance, to be creative, to meet!
Life at the Greenhouse is simple and self-sufficient:
• Non-commercial space: There is nothing to buy, everything is included.
• Excellent dance studios and a gym hall with wooden floor
• 3 Vegetarian Meals a day
• Hot Showers
• Communal sleeping rooms.
What will we do?
Intensives: 4-day Workshops (3 hours each day), which give the opportunity to work deeply with a master teacher. All intensives take place in parallel so you need to choose and follow one intensive throughout the festival. The number of places in each intensive is limited so register early to be in the intensive you want.
Classes are single sessions (usually 2-hour long) facilitated by one teacher. Giving you a chance to experience the unique approaches of different teachers to the dance. Each day several classes take place in parallel, and you can join the class you wish. There is no need to register beforehand.
