Ate9 performs TacTics an ensemble work with 12 dancers. Tactics is a 45-minute piece developed to launch the company's DancEducation Project. TacTics is designed to expose middle and high school students to athletic and groovy, and at the same time, thought-provoking and meaningful dance, and to spark excitement in the students, giving them the option to explore their own physicality and express themselves through movement. Ate9 invites students, parents, teachers, and artists to this informal showing. Dancers: Sarah Butler, Ariana Daub, Rebecah Goldstone, Nadav Heyman, Ja-Young Kim, Sarah Lyman, David Maurice Johnson, Genna Moroni, Julia Planine-Troiani, Julia Stiefel, and Spencer Toll, Stephanie Zaletel
Ate9 dANCEcOMPANY was founded by Israeli choreographer, Danielle Agami, in Seattle, Washington in June, 2012. After Ate9's debut of Sally meets Stu in Seattle, the company sought new venues for Agami's work and found a great potential in Los Angeles, California. The company is comprised of 12 hand-picked dancers whom Danielle has met over the years teaching Gaga and staging Ohad Naharin's work all over the world. Excited about opportunities here, the company has decided to plant roots in LA and hopes to become a vibrant voice of contemporary dance in the city.
Danielle Agami was born in Israel in 1984. She studied at the High School of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and was a member of the Batsheva Dance Company from 2002-2010. Between 2007-2009, Agami served as the artistic director of Batsheva Dancers Create and functioned as the company's rehearsal director from 2008-2010, during which she received the Yair Shapira Prize for Excellence in Dance in 2009. After 8 years with the Batsheva Dance Company, Danielle decided to make a change and relocated to New York, where she functioned as senior manager of Gaga U.S.A. Since arriving in the U.S., Agami has met thousands of dancers while teaching Gaga and staging the works of Ohad Naharin. During 2011 she created original work at Rutgers University (NJ), Boston Conservatory (MA), and Springboard Montreal.
