Dancing Since Her Childhood
Shim' on started dancing at a tender age of 3, which means she has been dancing for almost her whole life. In an interview, the actress stated after returning from school; she would rest for an hour and practice ballet non-stop for four to five hours up to five days a week.
At the age of 16, she was invited to test for the Israeli Army, which was an exciting thing for her. She was extra motivated to serve her country because she had heard for so much about her great uncle, who fought for a guerilla unit before the origin of Israel as a nation.
"So for me to grow up with that story in my household, I felt not only a national duty to go into the Army, but also like a generational duty. You know it's not very much a choice for us; you have to go."
But as she was thinking of going into the Army, her life took a turn when she performed for Jewish communities in Germany and Holland and after watching the professional dancers in classes and rehearsals. She then told that she was captivated by the beauty by what she saw and cried for three hours and decided to choose dance over military service.
The actress said:
"I knew, on the one hand, that I had to continue pursuing my dream, even if the very thing itself was going to make me compromise my Israeli identity. And it was so hard to tell my family and friends that's what I'm going to do."
Securing a full scholarship, the 37-year-old went to learn ballet at the national ballet school in Amsterdam, and after almost two years, she returned home to dance professionally.
In 2008, she auditioned for the Israeli television dance competition "Born to Dance" with a format based on the American show "So You Think You Can Dance," where she secured the 5th fifth place.
