Carmel Valley dancer and choreographer Jacob Soble was named “Best Dancer” at San Diego Theater’s Young Choreographer’s Showcase. His solo dance “Bitter Earth” captured the title. He also performed a duo titled “River.” In addition, Soble choreographed one of the show’s featured routines, “Knights in White Satin.”

It was a sold out event with over 200 attendees for two shows held at the White Box Theater at Liberty Station. There were approximately 50 dancers in both shows with 10 chosen choreographers showcasing their artistic pieces. Studio owner Jean Isaacs congratulated Soble on his accomplishment. He was the recipient of the title along with a cash prize.

Soble is the founder of the 501c charity titled Love2Dance, volunteering his time at Lindo Park Elementary School in Lakeside as a guest dance instructor to elementary school students. He currently teaches at six studios throughout San Diego and will be attending college locally in the fall, pursuing his choreography and dancing endeavors.
