About Edo Ceder

Edo started to dance in his late 20’s, and ever since then he has been performing, teaching, creating and producing dance. He trained with Vertigo Dance Company, Yasmeen Godder, and Frey Faust to name a few, but most of his early training was with Hakvutza dance school.

For a couple of years, he danced with the duo Maya Stern and Tomer Sharabi whom he performed within Israel, China, Armenia, and Germany – where he won 1st prize at the “No Ballet” choreography competition in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

In 2013, while he was studying for a B.A. in Psychology, Edo created “Aproximity” – a duet based on Margaret Mahler’s theory of Separation and Individuation. “Aproximity” won 3rd prize and Audience Award at the Zawirowania Choreography Competition, Warsaw, Poland 2014.

As a producer, he artistically directed the “Dance in the Desert” festival, a mutual project of the Choreographers Associations and Liat Dror & Nir Ben-Gal Company, and co-founded the ‘Contemporary Israeli Dance Week’ at La MaMa theater in NYC.
