Yochai Ginton is a professional dancer and dance teacher based in Israel. He collaborates with different choreographers and tours and performs around the world. His most recent work, a duet made in collaboration with his partner in life and dance, Olivia Court Mesa, premiered in Israel in November 2019 at the ‘Curtain Up’ dance festival in Suzzane Dellal.
Yochai has almost 20 years of experience in the field of contact improvisation. He teaches workshops, intensives and courses at dance schools and other institutions across Israel and abroad.
His teaching is based on a deep passion, in finding crossroads between contact in its improvised form and contemporary partnering work. Together, Olivia and Yochai have established ‘The Common Body Work’, a technique that explores the overlaps between contact improvisation, contemporary partnering and floor work technique. They teach this technique collaboratively.
Yochai is also a Feldenkrais practitioner and a Vipassana meditator who loves to dance Argentinian Tango.
