“…a piece of life moving as if with one heartbeat.” — SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS
Contemporary Dance Theater and the Mayerson JCC Wolf Center for Arts and Ideas are elated to present the ever-evolving Koresh Dance Company, based out of Philadelphia.

Led by Israeli-born Artistic Director, Roni Koresh, the company also boasts repertory by internationally-acclaimed guest choreographers such as Donald Byrd, Ohad Naharin, Robert Battle, and Itzik Galili.

The dancers of Koresh Dance Company—described by Dance Magazine‘s Wendy Perron as “technically superb, but even better,…allowed to be individuals“—will perform an eloquent and explosive program in a blend of ballet, modern, and jazz dance. The performances will include excerpts from Come Together (Koresh’s latest work), the humorous The HeartBolero, and choreography to Mozart’s “Moonlight Sonata” and Bach’s “Air.”

Demo + Insights with Ronen Koresh

Hosted by the Mayerson JCC Wolf Center for Arts and Ideas, Director Ronen Koresh will give a lecture detailing his choreographic process and how it relates to his Israeli roots on January 30, 2014 at 7:00pm a the JCC on 8485 Ridge Rd (45236). Free with RSVP at the Mayerson’s website.
