Netta Yerushalmy is an award winning dance artist based in New York City since 2000. Her work aims to engage with audiences by imparting the sensation of things as they are perceived, not as they are known, and to challenge how meaning is attributed and constructed. Netta received a Fellowship in Choreography from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, as well as a Jerome Robbins Bogliasco Fellowship, a Fellowship from the New York Foundation of the Arts, and a Six Points Fellowship.
She is currently a participant in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life program, and an Artist In Residence at Movement Research. Other 2016-17 residencies include Jacob’s Pillow’s CDR, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Watermill Center, and Harkness Dance Center.
In the US, Netta’s work has been commissioned and presented by venues such as the Joyce Theater, Danspace Project, American Dance Festival, New York Live Arts, La Mama, Harkness Dance Festival, and Movement Research. In Israel, she has been presented by numerous festivals including Curtain-Up, Jerusalem International Dance Week, Intimadance, International-Exposure, and Different Dance. Her work was also performed at the International Solo-Dance-Theater Festival (Stuttgart). Commissions for repertory companies include the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company (Salt Lake City), Zenon Dance Company (Minneapolis), Same Planet Different World (Chicago), Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, Of Moving Colors (Baton Rouge) and Misgav Dance Workshop.
As a performer Netta has worked with Joanna Kotze, Doug Varone and Dancers (2007-2012), Karinne Keithley, Nancy Bannon, Mark Jarecki, Noemie LaFrance, Ronit Ziv, and the Metropolitan Opera Ballet.
