Ports that Pass – Thank you 

Wow what a project! We would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to Arts Council England and Israeli Embassy for supporting the project and to our collaborators Na’ama Zisser, Amit Baruch and Jordan Mary. We were delighted to welcome guest dancers Paolo Pisarro and Aaron Smith, and would like to thank them and the other Loop Dancers Nina, Harriet and Daisy, for their wonderful performance. And finally, thank you to our amazing Choreographer, Sivan Rubinstein.
