On Saturday, Oct. 13 at 4 p.m., the Koresh Dance Company will present a full concert at the Foundation Performing Arts Center, located on the Spindale campus of Isothermal Community College.
Renowned for its powerful stage presence and high-energy style, Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company has been hailed as a vital force on both national and international stages. Founded in 1991 by Israeli-born choreographer and artistic director Ronen Koresh, this troupe presents its audiences with a blend of ballet, modern and jazz molded into a style of choreography that critics describe as both eloquent and explosive.
Koresh’s performance will feature a program drawing from its 20-year history. During the two-hour concert, the company will present full renditions and excerpts from more than a dozen of the company’s most famous works. In addition to the full-length performance, the Koresh Dance Company will provide several outreach programs, including the lecture demonstration in Tryon.
Following the full performance at 4 p.m., there will be a question and answer time with Koresh and the company’s dancers.
This concert and the outreach programs are supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the State Arts Council, through a grant program coordinated by South Arts.
Tickets for the performance of the Koresh Dance Company can be purchased online at www.foundationshows.org, by phone at 828-286-9990 and at the foundation box office prior to the show.  Dance student and youth discounts are available.
