About Nadine

About Nadine

Nadine Bommer-Yemini

Nadine Bommer is the choreographer and artistic director of the "Animato" Dance Company.

Born in New York, Nadine Bommer studied at the famous ABT (American Ballet Theatre) of New York City. Soon after, she received a scholarship at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.

Upon Nadine's return to Israel, while only a teenager, she started teaching modern dance to children and youth who were designated as being at risk. The originality of Nadine's teaching, full of humor and creativity, won her a grant for studies, which she had used to nourish her love for movement.

In recent years, Nadine developed a new dance technique called "Kinetica". This unique and original method has been adopted by 15 Israeli dance schools, among them the Kibbutzim College of Education Dance Theatre, and further introduced at yearly master Modern Dance workshops all over Europe.

In 1990, Nadine Bommer inaugurated a dance studio which she named "Dance Beat".

In 2003, Bommer opened the Nadine Academy of Dance. Since then, numerous dancers of the academy came in first place in various international dance contests around Europe, while performing choreographies by Nadine Bommer. These short performances were, in fact, the young version of the future dance group "Nadine Animato" that was created in 2007.

"Animato" is a new genre in the theater-dance field, and it is the unique style adopted by the "Nadine Animato' Dance Company. Nadine creates authentic characters and situations that are derived from the animation world while using its "Kinetica" language.

Since 2007, Nadine Bommer has received support and recognition from the ministry of science, culture and sports for her "Animato' method and for the "Nadine Animato" Dance Company she established.   

The same year, Nadine was invited to perform in Florence - Italy the "Manimation" show at the international Opening Premiere.

The Company performs in various festivals abroad and around Israel as well, which bring Nadine through her unique method on stage much appreciation and praise for its innovative body language.
