If you're in town when Philadanco is performing, don't miss it: This is one of the most innovative ensembles on the Philadelphia dance scene today. Philadanco founded the International Conference of Black Dance Companies and the International Association of Blacks in Dance to address the special needs of African Americans in the dance community. They're the only dance company that claims residence in the Kimmel Center, and have grown from a community arts group to 14 dancers blending African-American, ballet, jazz, and cutting-edge styles. Philadanco tours frequently, but shows off at home in November and May.
