Ronen “Roni” Koresh, 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 prior to settling in Philadelphia, where he performed with Shimon Braun’s acclaimed “Waves” Jazz Dance Company. After performing internationally, his interest shifted towards choreography, and he founded Koresh Dance Company in 1991. Shortly after, in 1993, he opened the Koresh School of Dance, serving as a residence for his company and a training center for the Philadelphia dance community. In addition to receiving numerous grants, Roni is a recipient of several choreographic fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts, the PEW Charitable Trusts, and the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. Roni regularly travels to conduct master classes, set choreography, conduct residencies, and showcase his company throughout the country.
