About Idan Sharabi:

Idan Sharabi was born in Israel, 1984. He graduated Thelma Yellin and The Juilliard School before he danced in Netherlands Dans Theater and Batsheva Dance Company. He was chosen to create for NDT Upcoming Choreographers in 2010 and won The Zeraspe Award in 2006, The Mahol Shalem International Competition in 2013, and Copenhagen International Choreography Competition 2012 & 2014. Between 2011-13 he created for companies: “TheProject” of The Israeli Opera House, KCDC, The Israel Ballet, Ballet Junior de Geneve, NND, ZDT, and EBBC. Last season, Sharabi was chosen to be one of the 9 promising young artists of Israel by American Express and founded his group, Idan Sharabi & Dancers, in September 2012. Since then, he has created four works for the group which were invited to festivals in Sweden, Denmark, Canada, Italy, and Israel. 
Throughout the years, Sharabi has taught workshops and created with students in schools, such as Contemporary Dance School Hamburg, Gothenburg Ballet Academy, Alvin Ailey School, The Italian Dance Alliance, Springboard Dance Montreal, The Maslool Dance Program, The Sadna in Ga’aton, Israel, and more. 

Idan Sharabi has been supported by American Express TYP Project, The Israel Ministry of Culture, The Israel Festival, Suzanne Dellal, Bikurey Ha-Itim, The AICF, The Israeli Opera House, The Juilliard School Donors and a donor of The Dance Library of Israel Organization.

This marks Idan's first master class series with New Dialect and the first phase of a new creation for the company. He is happy to be sharing his work with the dancers and public of Nashville.
