Philadanco, otherwise known as Philadelphia's dance company, has been hailed as a "miracle of skill and energy" (Dance Magazine), comprised of dancers whose "blazing physicality and commitment light up the stage" (The Village Voice). Led by founder Joan Myers Brown, who is also a dance faculty member at Howard University, Philadanco emphasizes joyous and adventurous works with universal appeal.
Favoring virtuosity and expressiveness--from sky-high legs to deeply arched arabesques to soaring leaps--the company brings to bear more than 35 years of innovative artistry. Fresh from participating in the Kennedy Center's sold-out, standing room only Masters of African American Choreography festival in April 2005, Philadanco returns to offer more unique cultural gifts in an exciting mixed repertory program.
"Silken grace, perfect form, excitingly rendered… a company of invigorating contrast"
