Israeli-born Ronen Koresh’s path to a life in dance is not your typical career track. He learned as a child from his mother, a folk dancer in the Yemenite tradition, and joined Martha Graham’s Batsheva 2 Dance Company as a teenager. After fulfilling his three-year enlistment with the Israeli army he immigrated to the United States to train in New York City with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater; then created his own company in Philadelphia. Now Koresh Dance Company is renowned for its powerful stage presence and emotionally charged performances in balance with a deep commitment to education and community-building through collaboration. Don’t miss one of the company’s signature works as the company lights up the stage to the music of Maurice Ravel’s Bolero!
