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 met and taught thousands of dancers. During 2011 she created original work at Rutgers University (NJ), Boston Conservatory (MA), Springboard Montreal, Cornish College for the Arts (WA) and more. After relocating to Seattle, Agami founded Ate9 as her first longitudinal project - a discovery of her artistic voice as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. In 2012 Agami created Sally meets Stu and Sheila for Ate9. During 2013, Agami presented TacTics in L.A, Shula in Israel, a new work for the BatSheva Ensemble, This Time Tomorrow for Northwest Dance Project and Invisible Cities for The Industry Opera and LA Dance Project.

In the past few years, Agami staged his work for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Ballet Atlanta, Ita Dansa / Barcelona, the Juilliard School in NY, and more. Agami and Naharin see a future of collaboration between them - maintaining their friendship, sharing their knowledge while thriving to continue and share Art.
