Koresh Dance Company was founded in 1991 by Israeli-born choreographer and artistic director Roni Koresh. Known for its engaging performance and technically superb dancers, the company's critically acclaimed work continues to attract increasing audiences. They will perform as part of Sewanee's Performing Arts Series.

The company has been acclaimed internationally, touring to destinations including Spain, Turkey, Israel, South Korea, Mexico and Guatemala. Over the years, Koresh has developed a vast repertoire of work that ranges from explosive and passionate to intimate and restrained. The company also operates the Koresh School of Dance to serve as a dance training center for the Philadelphia community. While on tour, the company provides diverse outreach offerings that connect with dancers and non-dancers alike. While in Sewanee, the company will give a demo for area young people. (Photo, right, by Pete Checchia)

“The finale was typically turbocharged - because when the dust settles after a Koresh concert, you must leave bedazzled.”
