He toured with the company throughout the world and created his first solo dance in 1994. Emanuel Gat Dance was founded in 2004 and has appeared at many important festivals worldwide. Gat is now busy establishing the Kiryat Gat Choreographic Centre in Israel's Negev region, projected to serve as his company's home upon completion.
