One of the preeminent black dance companies in the United States, PHILADANCO! is celebrated for its innovation, creativity, and preservation of predominantly African-American traditions in dance. Its exquisite dancers and acclaimed choreographers have explored topics ranging from the civil rights movement to the Central Park Five through the art of dance.
