The group’s repertoire            is both rich and colorful, and expresses the wealth and beauty of the Israeli culture that evolved with the arrival of Jewish immigrants from all over the world. The folk dances are distinct from each other in the same way as cultures are. Yet, over the years, the interaction between the various cultures has been expressed by means of unique choreographies, costumes and music. The uniqueness of Kramim group when it appears on stage, is the pace and tempo of the dancers that excite and draw the audience.
