Or Kachlon could be the latest Israeli to attend the renowned Juilliard School of dance, drama and music in New York. The winner of last month's Born to Dance reality television series can now be found overseas auditioning for a spot in the school's Dance Division. The auditions in New York began on March 3 and ended yesterday. Among the Dance Division's alumni are the celebrated choreographers and dance company directors Lar Lubovitch, Paul Taylor, Bruce Marks, Susan Marshall, and Martha Clarke. While Kachlon found fame through his participation in the Channel 2 TV show, he made it known that his choosing to be a dancer was not easy socially. In Hadera, kids in his class called him the "gay nerd". The handsome 18-year-old was a favorite from day one of the contest. Although other reality TV winners, especially those from Born to Sing, have gone on to be local celebrities, Kachlon made it clear that he just wants to dance. In the coming days, we should know if Kachlon is headed to the top of the dance world.
