Ephrat "Bounce" Asherie has trained extensively in ballet and modern dance, but has found her artistic home in the street dance forms of b-girling (breaking), Hip-Hop and house. Ephrat began b-girling in Brooklyn in 2002 under Breakeasy (B.I.S crew) and training Hip-Hop with Leslie Feliciano. Soon after, she was introduced to house music and has been greatly influenced by the New York club scene ever since.
Ephrat has performed and taught throughout the US and Europe, as well as in Peru and South Africa. She has appeared on MTV, Comedy Central and at Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden and DTW. Ephrat is a member of the all-female breaking crew FoxForceFive and of MAWU, a house dance collective. She was chosen by Dance Magazine as one of 25 to watch in 2007. Ephrat is co-founder of the non-profit outreach organization Dance for Peace: One Step at a Time. She recently performed in Bill Irwin's premiere of the Happiness Lecture at the Philadelphia Theater Company.
