Frances Daly Fergusson Dance Theater, Kenyon Hall

The Department of Dance, the Africana Studies Program, and the Office of the Dean of Faculty present a performance by the Philadelphia Dance Company. This is a free but ticketed event; please make a reservation to attend.

The Philadelphia Dance Company (PHILADANCO!) was founded in 1970 by Joan Myers Brown and was created out of a need to provide performance opportunities for Black dancers, who were then systematically denied entrance in many local dance schools and had even fewer professional performance outlets. Since its inception, it has become a world-class company that has been a trailblazer for artists of color, and a leading international cultural ambassador.
