Koresh Dance Company
Presented by Contemporary Dance Theater
In the second presentation of its 2017-18 Guest Artist Season Contemporary Dance Theater is partnering with The Mayerson JCC and The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati in celebration of Israel at 70. The three Cincinnati-based organizations, which are all committed to bringing more of the arts to the public in engaging ways, are delighted to collaborate in another presentation of the acclaimed Koresh Dance Company of Philadelphia.
Koresh Dance Company will present an eclectic evening of choreography from the company’s repertory. That repertory includes works presented during the 25 years of the company’s existence. The program will include excerpts from ‘The Heart’, ‘Deconstructing Mozart’ choreographed to Mozart’s 23rd piano concerto, works from ‘Out/Line’, and Koresh’s highly acclaimed ‘Bolero’ set to Maurice Ravel’s well-known score.
In 1991, Artistic Director Mr. Roni Koresh founded Koresh Dance Company in Philadelphia. More than twenty-five years later, the company has become one of the city’s most respected dance companies, with a vast repertoire of work and has been celebrated locally, nationally and internationally. Roni’s Israeli heritage continues to differentiate the company and the raw passion that is infused into his movement leaves audiences dazzled year after year. With a gift for movement creation, Roni refuses to settle on a technique, instead defining himself by a signature style of ever evolving movement and an exciting and emotional blend of ballet, modern and jazz.
