Supporting contemporary dance through projects that encourage artists and audiences to more fully participate and engage in the experience and pursuit of dance as an evolving form.

Philadelphia Dance Projects’ Local Dance History Project is an exciting artist-driven online interpretive archive, that you can be part of! Help us launch the first interactive webpage of the Local Dance History Project with the Timeline.

We will begin with a very special look into the evolution of post modern dance as glimpsed through the microcosm of an especially rich and vibrant era of independent dance and performance that was taking place in Philadelphia in the 1970’s and 80’s, beginning with artists; Terry Beck, Michael Biello, Jac Carley, Jano Cohen, Terry Fox, Tonio Guerra, Wendy Hammarstrom, Ishmael Houston-Jones, Steve Krieckhaus, and Dan Martin.

THANKS to all our recent donors to the LDHP Indiegogo campaign we will begin developing the website to launch this new season 14-15!
