This group include all the dance courses related to The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance

The story begins in August 1932, when the young pianist Yocheved Dostorevsky, who came to Jerusalem from Vienna where she had completed her studies at the Academy for Music and Performing Arts, established a new school for “music and the art of movement.”
One of Mrs. Dostorevsky-Kupernik’s first tasks was to obtain support and confirmation that the institution was “under the supervision of the Ministry of Education.”Although the Ministry recognized the Academy as an educational institution, thus giving a boost to its growth, it took 21 years before it gained full recognition as an institute of higher education.The starting point of the educational program was, according to Dostorevsky-Kupernik:”to train educated musicians and dancers, with broad knowledge of their profession, able to think, and setting themselves ideals and values towards which they strive.”
