Her unique leadership and ability to cultivate excellence in others has brought her to the forefront of her profession. After 8 years dancing with Batsheva Dance Company where she was appointed rehearsal director from 2007-10, Agami went on to stage Ohad Naharin’s work with prominent companies around the country including Alvin Ailey and Atlanta Ballet. She frequently appears as a guest teacher at NYU Tisch, Juilliard, USC, and CalArts, among many others. Agami founded her company Ate9 in 2012 as a platform for innovative movement and artistic research. With Ate9 she has created over 8 complete works in addition to numerous site-specific performances and collaborations with local LA institutions including the LA Philharmonic, The Music Center, CAP UCLA, The Industry Opera, CalArts, and REDCAT. 

She received the 2018 Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance and the 2016 Princess Grace Award for Choreography, and was named Dance Magazine’s Top 25 to Watch in 2015. She won The Grand Prize for Best Choreography at The MCcallum Theater at Palm Desert in 2013 and 2014! 

Her recent works have included collaborations with Wilco percussionist Glenn Kotche, actor Jon Hamm, and Spanish singer/songwriter Russian Red. This fall she was invited by The English National Opera to choreograph a Philip Glass opera at The Coliseum in London. 

These days Agami is invested in making the first international involvement of Ate9 in Europe. Ate9 is expanding and influencing more dancers around the world. With many goals ahead the organization is committed to continue to support original creation and contemporary values for years to come.
