In 2009 Philadelphia Dance Projects launched PDP Presents DANCE UP CLOSE a presenting series featuring dance performances, workshops, and “Informances” by individual dance artists and companies. PDP Presents provided an adventuresome series in contemporary dance within a broader local and global context through 2014. From 2015-2018 PDP there were special presentations under PDP Presents.
In 2020 PDP Presents DANCE UP CLOSE continued with a Mid-Winter/Mid-Week Dance Series. March events were cancelled due to Covid-19. PDP Presents continues virtually with live “Informances” artist audience conversations and anticipates a future jumpstart to live programming in the Fall 2021.
