    Yarden Ronen


    REZ: What was the high point of your Skidmore Summer Dance experience?

    YR: The Latin Social Dance with the community. I like the involvement with the community. We had a showing of a new piece in an open rehearsal, with a lecture demonstration. We did our work, plus the audience was involved. Also, you have space and trees here. It's different from studios in NY. In a Company Class, we got students to a professional level. And, at the Egg in Albany, we performed to a full house.

    REZ: What are your goals for yourself?

    YR: To succeed in dance, not just in Latin, but also in Classic.

    REZ: As an Israeli, how did you happen to join Ballet Hispanico?

    YR: I came to the Company in 2001, heard about the Company, got a call back, then another, and then got a contract.

    REZ: What attracted you to Ballet Hispanico?

    YR: It's a place to combine art and diverse choreography, jazz, and modern pieces, such as Club Havana (See Ballet Hispanico Club Havana Review).

    REZ: Tell me about your Israel dance experience.

    YR: I studied at Bat D'Or Ballet Company. I had a full scholarship and joined in 1996. Lar Lubovitch was there and choreographed a period piece about Jews. He choreographed two pieces for my Company, while I was a soloist. Then, I came to NY for a two-week vacation on my way to South America. During my visit, I auditioned for Ballet Hispanico. A lot of people came. They took a small amount of the participants (in the audition).

    REZ: Do you have a dance partner?

    YR: Natalia is my steady dance partner. We have a lot of chemistry.

    REZ: Thanks, and Good Luck!
