Israeli Wins International Choreography Competition [VIDEO]

Dance shows seem to be all the rage nowadays. The incredible turns, jumps, twists, and well choreographed routines captivate audiences, and move them to tears.

Which is exactly the case with Idan Sharabi’s routine, “Ours.”

Choreographed by Sharibi and danced with Dor Mamalia, “Ours” recently won 1st place at the 28th International Choreographers Competition in Hanover, Germany.

According to a report by The Algemeiner, Sharabi recently posted the win on his personal website. The report also claims that the piece is an exploratory one, which experiments with space, form, and what it really means to be home.

Sharabi, as mentioned in the article, posted a thank you to his supporters via Facebook after the event. “We are so lucky to get all these opportunities to share our work with so many different audiences,” he said. “Winning with Dor, for the second time, was unbelievable and so rewarding.”

Having won the competition, which took place from June 21st to the 22nd, Sharabi will be taking home 6,000 Euros as a reward.
