"The members of the Philadelphia Dance Company, better known as PHILADANCO, can do just about anything: leap like arrows in flight, spin, stretch, kick and melt like hot wax." ~ The Washington Post
The Philadelphia Dance Company, affectionately known as PHILADANCO, has danced its way into the hearts of America with superlative technique, well trained dancers and an exciting repertoire of choreography. Over the more than 40 years of its existence, PHILADANCO's repertory has included the works of world-renowned choreographers such as Milton Myers, Elisa Monte, Ron K. Brown, Lynne Taylor Corbett, Gene Hill Sagan, Talley Beatty and more recently Rennie Harris, Christopher Huggins and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar.
Across the nation and around the world, PHILADANCO is celebrated for its innovation, creativity and preservation of predominantly African-American traditions in dance. It provides world-class dance instruction, promotes emerging dancers and choreographers and engages its many communities through performances and outreach activities. Founded in 1970, PHILADANCO is recognized for its artistic integrity, superbly trained dancers, and electrifying performances. For more information, visit PHILADANCO.
