Marshall is thrilled to be involved in Tel Aviv's thriving dance scene. "Israeli dance is flourishing — I think it's known especially in Europe as being a hot spot for dance. And it really is amazing the per capita of dance we have and the success rate of these choreographers abroad, from Inbal Pinto Dance Company, Batsheva Dance Company, Kibbutz Dance Company, Emanuel Gat Dance, and Vertigo Dance Company to a lot of other choreographers. We don't have a long history, so the choreographers are not following a certain genre or style. But they're very 'chutzpah-tic' — bold and unique voices — and I'm excited to be a part of the community."
