Friday, September 28, 2018

On Saturday, October 13 from 2:00 PM-3:30 PM and in collaboration with the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest, the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC will host Ido Tadmor, former Artistic Director of Israel’s Ballet and internationally acclaimed dancer/choreographer, in a Master Dance Class and Informal Studio Showing. Tadmor will teach and practice classic ballet technique or contemporary dance skills based on works from his repertoire.

He will focus on materials and elements from selected dances, work on them with participants, explore how they were constructed and use them as basis for developing an enriching process of movement study. “Participation in this workshop, analyzing various materials produced on stage before an audience, may serve to enrich the participant’s world, enhance their technical abilities and hone their performance skills,” stated Tadmor.

After the master class, from 4:00 PM-4:45 PM, Tadmor will speak and show the audience his process of choreographing with the students as well demonstrate his movement. A Q&A will follow the informal showing.

Ido Tadmor, legendary world-renowned Israeli dancer and choreographer, received presidential professorship from the Chapman University in California. In 2011, he was the winner of the highly respected “Landau Prize” in Israel for life achievement. Tadmor was the Artistic Director of the Israeli Ballet Company for several years and had his own ensemble for 13 years. During more than three decades, he has represented the State of Israel around the world as an “Ambassador of Dance.” Over the years, he has danced as a principal dancer in companies such as Bat Dor, Bat Sheva, Scapino Ballet, Lar Lubovitch and Complexions.

The fee for the workshop is $15 and must be prepaid. The informal studio showing of Tadmor’s work is free and open to members and the public.
