synopsis:

Ya’el Tap, under the direction of Julie Rubin, is a new dance company featuring works that are mostly inspired by Hebrew music, and at times Israeli movement. The ensemble will be performing three pieces, choreographed by Julie Rubin.

Salaam – Peace” explores the theme of universal peace. Ya’el Tap uses dance to join together as one in a community of harmony. “L’Chaim - To Life!” celebrates the survival and flourish of Jewish existence after the Holocaust. The movement is a fusion of Israeli folk and Tap dance, creating a unique new style. We remember. We survive. We celebrate. We dance. “Sing Sing Sing” ends the performance, culminating with joy, happiness, peace, and strength!
