Galit Liss is an independent Israeli choreographer and teacher. As part of her artistic and social agenda, she creates with mature women who are non-dancers. Her performances have been shown at festivals in Israel and abroad. She created the "GILA" methodology, a unique practice of working with a mature body, offering a platform of dance through which aging becomes a source of ultimate inspiration and empowerment for self- realization of the aging body. Galit Liss is the founder of the "GILA school of movement and performance art for mature women”.
