New Artistic Director

We are pleased to welcome Moy Covalin as the new Artistic Director of the Israeli Dance School. Moy is an accomplished award-winning choreographer and dancer with over 20 years of experience, and comes to Vancouver from Mexico City. He choreographed, and acted as the artistic director of numerous Israeli dance festivals and The Chai Folk Ensemble, and has big plans for the JCC Israeli Dance Company.

Moy will also teach the young adult (+18) performance company, and invites dancers to come to the Introduction Session on September 23 at 7:00 pm.
