Roni grew up in Kfar Shmaryahu and since 2013 she is based in Tel Aviv, Israel. In 2009, Roni graduated with honors from the dance department of Hayuval High School, Herzliya. After completing her military service at Unit 8200 (2009- 2011), she studied dance for one year at Vertigo’s training program followed by another year at Gaaton Dance Workshop (2011-2013). In 2014, Roni created her first work Spineless, a video dance that got viral very quickly in Israel and aborad. A few months later, she staged her first solo work, Ani-Ma, which received the prestigious award of ‘Shades in Dance’ competition 2015, Suzanne Dellal. Since then, Roni continues to develop her unique movement language and her works are exhibited in Israel and abroad. In her movement research, Roni is deconstructing the body into multiple joints that function independently. She is in a constant search for instinctive, emotional and raw motives for movements. Her works are characterized by the attempt to deconstruct the body, the movement, the image, the relationship between audience and performers and the act of the show itself. the way she deals with the body peels it from history, stereotypes and dictated labeling and confronts it with a naked present.
As a dancer, Roni collaborated with various choreographers in Israel and abroad, including Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor, Maya Brinner, Odelya Kuperberg and Satoshi Kudo. As a teacher, Roni is teaching contemporary dance classes and Repertoire at the most prestigious dance schools in Israel, including: Gaaton Dance Workshop, The Maslool, Ironi Aleph Dance Department, Jerusalem Academy of Music & Dance and Vertigo Workshop.
