Machol Shalem Dance House (MASH) has been nurturing and promoting contemporary dance culture in Jerusalem since 2002. Our mission is to establish a supportive infrastructure for artists to develop and share new works, while also providing platforms for interactions between Jerusalem's dance community and the public at large. MASH produces a diverse array of cultural events throughout the year including: performances, workshops, master classes, festivals, and outdoor events, and is one of six dance centers officially recognized by the Israeli Ministry of Culture. 

A further MASH objective is to contribute to the branding of Jerusalem as a young and vibrant cultural hub with a dynamic, cutting-edge arts scene. In order to do so, MASH offers a program called the Jerusalem Exchange, which enables international collaboration through Jerusalem-based events that showcase acclaimed artists from abroad alongside emerging local talent, students, and special guests. MASH serves dozens of Jerusalem artists and dance groups, managed by secular, religious, and ultra-Orthodox artists, each year. 

In addition to its projects here in Israel, MASH offers several international events and opportunities from the annual International Dance Week to an International Festival for Children and Youth Dance Concerts in collaboration with the Foreign Ministry. MASH also creates co-productions and working relationships with fellow creators around the world. Throughout the year, MASH runs children's performances, community and social projects, and hosts artists, creators, and dance directors from Israel and around the world.

The MASH studio and performance spaces at the former Rav Chen Cinema serve as a dance incubator for dozens of independent artists, helping to nurture local artistic activity at both the production and performance levels, and bringing stimulating, ground-breaking work to the professional stage. MASH also operates as a training framework for artists at the start of their careers, facilitating the creative process and, ultimately, producing performances at professional venues.

MASH is located at 3 HaParsa Street, Talpiot at the former Rav Chen Cinema, which is currently undergoing renovations, under the direction of the Jerusalem Municipality, to be completed in the summer of 2020. MASH additionally hosts events in a variety of venues in Jerusalem , across Israel, and around the world.
