Koresh Dance Company

February 1, 2020 8 – 10 p.m.

Philadelphia's Koresh Dance Company, founded in 1991 by artistic director Ronen Koresh, is a vital force in the dance world, touring across the nation to perform Koresh's explosive choreography while promoting dance throughout communities.

Known for their exciting and emotional blend of ballet, modern and jazz, the company illuminates the stage with rhythms drawn from Koresh’s Israeli folk roots and the human experience.

Their program includes Koresh’s latest work La Danse, inspired by Matisse’s famous painting of the same name, as well as a work set to Ravel’s Bolero, and more.

“all the finesse and grace of a ballet with the athleticism of an Olympic sport”
