In 2010 the Suzanne Dellal Centre was awarded the Israel Prize, the country’s most prestigious prize and highest honor.

“In its 20 years of activity in Neve Tzedek, the Suzanne Dellal Centre has succeeded in uplifting the art of dance in Israel. The great many diverse artistic endeavors of the Centre have spawned a new generation of artists, creators, and performers in the field of artistic dance. Creative excellence on the Centre’s stages has broadened, and continues to broaden, the circle of dance-lovers.
The Center opened the gates of of the world’s dance stages to the Israeli dance scene and allowed Israeli dance to make its mark on the world. Since its establishment, the Suzanne Dellal Center has become the home and anchor all artistic endeavors in the field of contemporary dance in Israel.”
