Koresh Dance Company

“Earthy, folk-dancey, emotionally direct, physically intense, and ostentatiously eccentric.” – The New Yorker

Join us for a free preview lecture at 7:30pm on Wednesday, Feb 27 in the theater building. Koresh company members will host a mini-performance and discussion about how music influences the feelings evoked by movement. 

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. 

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.
