Award Winning Israeli choreographer Hagit Yakira founded Hagit Yakira Dance Company in 2007 and has since gone on to tour the UK, Europe, Scandinavia and Israel. To date, she has created eight works for her company amongst many other commissioned works for companies and institutions. Awards that Hagit has won include First Prize for Oh Baby (Kajaani Choreography Competition, Finland 2009) and Second Prize for Somewhere between a self and another (Burgos New York Choreography Competition, Spain 2007). Hagit has a PhD from City University – Trinity Laban and she is a qualified Dance Movement Therapist. Hagit creates work whereby human experiences, movement and dance are uniquely and poetically interwoven into an individual interpretation of relationships and emotions through dance and performance.
“Combining my skills and expertise as a dance movement therapist with my philosophical approaches to dance, performance and education, I encourage a passionate, emotional and experimental approach to creative work. I believe in a personal, positive, emotional, energetic and vibrant way of teaching. The workshop allows insight into the way I work with my company as well as my PhD research and thesis. The workshop fits creative souls. There is no need to have a dance background, but an open mind”. Yagit Hakira
