As a teacher of the Feldenkrais method and a dancer, Einat Tal was born in 1970 in Israel, but has lived in the Alt Penedès since 2004. She began her classical piano studies at the age of ten with teacher Hanna Shalgi and continued them at the Thelma Yellen Institute School of Arts in Givataim (Israel). During the following years, and as a result of her growing interest in body movement, she decided to focus her career on dance and somatic methods.
In 1996 she graduated in dance-movement with a B. Dance and obtained a Master’s degree in education from the Jerusalem College of Dance and Music. At that time she was fortunate to work with such teachers as Amos Hetz and Yael Cnaani (dance-movement notation), Anat Shamgar and Julyen Hamilton (improvisation), Hillel Krauss (contact improvisation), Tadashi Endo (butho), Jamie Leno Zimron (aikido) and Dr Eilat Almagor (Feldenkrais method). She then trained in the Feldenkrais method and obtained an international diploma under the direction of Eilat Almagor and Anat Baniel.
From 1995 onwards, she has developed her professional career in three areas: interpretation, pedagogy and research. As a performer, between 1997 and 2004 she danced pieces created with the notation of Noa-Eshkol dance in the groups of Eyal Efron and Yael Cnaani.
In 2002 and 2003, she participated in the Room Dance Festival with Yael Cnaani group. With Helena Pellisé’s ImproLab she participated as an improviser in work samples at nunArt Gràcia and Guinardó Barcelona. From 2013 onwards she has been a choreographer and performer in her group Dancing days (St. Pere de Riudebitlles). They presented two pieces: Glop de dansa at the GlopArt festival in St. Pere de Riudebitlles (2013) and Dancing days at the En Camí festival in Ripoll (2015). Over the years she has continued her training with Carme Torrent, Andrés Corchero, Paolo Cingolani, Helena Pellisé and Thomas Hauert. She also collaborates with artists from other fields such as the painter Colin Bloom and the pianist Manel Martín.
As a dance teacher, between 1995 and 2001 she taught movement classes in primary schools in Jerusalem and at Bar-Ilan University (Israel). As a teacher of the Feldenkrais method, she has been giving individual and group sessions to people of different ages, interests and difficulties since 1997. She works in the Mutual General-Social Security in Israel, in the Jerusalem Center for the Blind and in several private practices in Tel-Aviv, Vilafranca del Penedès and Barcelona. She is currently working at Momentum, a centre for the Feldenkrais method and movement in Barcelona. In addition, she also conducts individual and group sessions, gives intensive workshops focused on voice for singers and choirs, and workshops in the form of laboratories for actors, dancers and musicians. She teaches the subject of Body Building at the Taller de Músics Escuela Superior de Estudios Musicales.
As a researcher, between 2007 and 2010, and as a result of her concerns as a mother, she created and directed the free education project El Pàmpol. She is currently involved in an international project to integrate the Feldenkrais method into primary schools under the direction of Eilat Almagor, and she gives Feldenkrais sessions in the classrooms of the La Fassina school in Mediona.
