Dance artists are engaged in a “time sensitive” transitory art form that merits support and response in the present. Your contribution will directly support contemporary dance through PDP’s Projects that encourage artists and audiences to more fully participate and engage in the experience and pursuit of dance as an evolving form. Our Projects greatly enhance the capacity of dancemaking, and the presence of dance in Philadelphia.

We welcome your support and participation. Volunteer and/or in-kind support is always welcome, too.

Thank You!
