Kamea was founded in Beer Sheva, the southern metropolis of the Israel, to fill the void of a repertory modern dance company in Israel and to create a platform for choreographers and dancers wishing to advance the art of dance in the Negev. Kamea is home to over a dozen dancers, many graduates of the Bat-Dor Beer-Sheva School.

The company’s repertoire brings to the stage the diverse work of its choreographers, mainly Israelis, who have created works geared to different age groups. The dance pieces encompass a wide range of dance styles and are performed on a high technical and artistic level by Kamea’s dancers.

Kamea has been touring intensively throughout Israel holding around 80 performances a year. Kamea toured Europe, South America, India and China with great success.
