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 the age of four-teen, he started training in acting with the Encounter Youth Theater Company and the JEST Musical Theater Company, and started dancing with the Mehola youth company. During those years he started training as a singer and cantor.
When he turned eight-teen, he devoted two years to Judaic studies in a Yeshiva, and five years to military service as an Intelligence officer in the IDF.
Upon dismissal from his military service he put on his dance shoes back on and enrolled in a BFA program at the Rubin Academy of Music and Dance. After getting back in shape, he started dancing for the JAMD Ensemble and then got a contract with the Fresco-Dance-Company. After three years of dancing with the company and with independent choreographers, he returned to musical theater and he joined the Cameri Theater’s production of West Side Story and the Porat Theater’s production of Mulan.
Yochai moved to New York in 2017 and has danced independent choreographers such as Roi Assaf and Troy Oglivie, appeared on the hit web-series Soon By you, and will be performing in Kirsten Brook Sandler’s Gilded which will premiere in the Capital Fringe Festival in D.C this July.
