Video: A Dance Company Taps Into Jewish Life After the Holocaust

Since 2011, Ya’el Tap has been a resident company at the Wild Project on East Third Street. Most of the group’s dancers, including founder Julie Rubin, graduated from the dance education program of the NYU Steinhardt School a few years ago. Tonight, in “FIGURE 18, Jewish Life Never Ends: A Celebration Through the Arts”, they’ll perform four pieces inspired by Hebrew music, Israeli folk dance, and Jewish life after the Holocaust. Before you go and see the show, sit in on rehearsals by watching The Local’s video.
