Galit Adani, Founder and Executive Director
Galit Adani is a professional dancer and educator. Galit was born and raised in Israel. After the completion of her mandatory military service in the Israeli air force she attended NYC’s Queens College where she graduated with honors and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theatre-Communications and Psychology. During her college years she began to donate her time as a volunteer dance teacher to NYC’s inner city youth for the non-profit organization Groove With Me, a commitment she kept for over 11 years (1998-2009). During that time she had a successful career in the field of dance as a performer, choreographer and instructor. She also has extensive experience in the education field as a Youth Director (grades 6–12) and a Hebrew school teacher (grades 3–12) at The Conservative Synagogue Religious School located in Westport-Connecticut (1999–2009). In October 2009, after years of working with youth and upon the encouragement of her students and their parents, Galit founded Dance to Unite, a program that would combine education and dance for the purpose of future peace.
