Yochai Greenfeld is an American-Israeli dancer, actor and singer. He was born and raised in Israel, and started training as a competitive gymnast at the age of eight. At four-teen he started training in acting with the Encounter Youth Theater Company and the JEST Musical Theater Company, as well as dancing with the Mehola youth company.

​​When he turned eight-teen he devoted two years to Judaic studies in a Yeshiva, and five years to a military service as an Intelligence officer in the IDF.

Upon dismissal from his military service he put his dance shoes back on and enrolled in a BFA program at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and started dancing for the JAMD Ensemble and the Fresco-Dance-Company. After three years of dancing for companies and with independent choreographers, he returned to Musical Theater and joined the Cameri Theater’s production of West Side Story and the Porat Theater’s production of Mulan.

In 2017 Yochai moved to New York and has since danced with independent choreographers such as Roi Assaf and Troy Oglivie, appeared on the hit web-series “Soon By you”, and the steam-punk musical Gilded; a new musical by Kirsten Sandler and Guy Mannick which premiered at the Capital Fringe Festival. This holiday season he will be joining the National Tour of “A Charlie Brown Christmas Live” as Snoopy.

Yochai also teaches Hebrew and Bar Mitzvah at the School for Creative Judaism, and works as a PT assistant at James Fowler Physical Therapy.
