Festival Description

Philadelphia Dance Projects showcases adventurous dance programming by pairing rising Philadelphia talent with visiting choreographers. The Project celebrates local dance with a look back and a look ahead, pairing the next wave of contemporary dance artists with influential choreographers from the 1970s and 80s Philadelphia dance scene. From the Local Dance History Project, which looks at the rise of contemporary dance in Philadelphia, to the emerging choreographers showcase Next Up, to the dance on film series, Motion Pictures, PDP Presents’ intergenerational programming mixes past and future and gives fresh insight into adventurous dance trends.

The inaugural series in 2009 was a great success, with sellout shows for all performances, as audiences came out in huge numbers to see contemporary dance, alive and well in Philadelphia.
