RBS Dance and Music Academy provides a place where every woman and girl can express her creativity and spirituality through dance and music. RBSDMA is located in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel and caters to girls and women of all hashkafas.

 

The academy was created in 2011 by Founding Creative Directors Shaked Sebag (2011-present) and Jezliah Villarreal (2011-2019).  Shaked Sebag is honored to direct a religious dance and music school that provides professional and quality training in a warm and caring environment. Directors and instructors have years of training and have experience performing locally and abroad. RBS Dance and Music Academy is not just a community chug, but rather a professional school for serious artists who want to further their dance and music education, and reach for their potential.

Dance Program 

Directed by Shaked Sebag, the academy hosts nearly 25 classes weekly in styles such as Ballet, Jazz, Hip hop, Contemporary, Tap, technique and performance skills.  We have beginner, intermediate and advanced classes for girls and women starting from age 4!  Please note: We DO have beginner classes for women too!  Our Performance Company receives higher training and performs at various women events throughout the year, as well as online women's events, music videos, and other special projects. This class is by audition only.  Please call 058 488 0060 to learn more about the PERFORMANCE COMPANY and auditions.

Music Programs

In collaboration with Judith Gerzi and her Vocal Program, students can enjoy private or performance group classes where they learn various vocal skills and performance skills.  The will learn song writing techniques, expand their range, and learn to find their unique voice.  Ariella Zeitlin and her Violin Program offer a creative and fun way to practice classical technique, grow musical knowledge, and expand technical and performance ability.

Students participate in our end of the year production which draws crowds from all over Israel. 

RBSDMA uses only religious Jewish music and/or instrumental music during class and performances. We also keep a high level of tzniut in classes and performances.

Our programs have come so far, especially while dealing with the challenges that COVID 19 has brought us all, BUT, we are going stronger that ever, and continuing to be there for the girls and women of our community.  With strict adherance to the MOH guidelines, we will continue to offer the best that we can in music and dance.  2021-22 promises to a be a fabulous and unexpected year!

 Come be a part of this incredible family of talented women and girls!
