Koresh Dance Company was founded in 1991 by Israeli-born choreographer and artistic director Ronen (Roni) Koresh. The Philadelphia based company is known for its engaging performances and superb dancers. This performance will feature a mix of contemporary dance works choreographed by Roni Koresh, sure to provide an afternoon of movement that awakens, excites, awes and inspires.

Moments of tenderness and grace alternate with humor and brash force on this program of highlights. The program takes a musical and emotional journey as classical favorites are interwoven with world and industrial music, bringing audiences a dynamic program that will bring them to their feet.
