Instructor: Ronen (Roni) Koresh

Roni, a native of Israel, began his career with the renowned Batsheva Dance Company of Tel Aviv. Immigrating to the U.S. in 1983, he studied in New York with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and then came to settle in Philadelphia, where he performed primarily with Shimon Braun's acclaimed 'Waves' Jazz Dance Company. After performing on tour all over the world he turned more towards choreography and started the Koresh Dance Company in 1991. In 1993 he opened the Koresh School of Dance, as a home for his company and as a training center for Philadelphia dancers. He has been a recipient of choreographic fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts as well as received numerous grants supporting the company. Roni regularly travels to conduct master classes, set choreography and conduct residencies with his company while remaining on faculty at The University of the Arts.
