The Philadelphia Dance Company, affectionately known as PHILADANCO, has danced its way into the hearts of America with superlative technique, well-trained dancers and an exciting repertoire of choreography.  Fans, both old and new, will join the dancers on a tour through the groundbreaking 40 years that helped shape them into the spectacular and electrifying company they are today.

Over the years, PHILADANCO’s repertory has included the works of world-renowned choreographers such as Milton Myers, Elisa Monte, Ron K. Brown, Lynne Taylor Corbett, Gene Hill Sagan, Talley Beatty and more recently Rennie Harris, Christopher Huggins, and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, to name a few.

For patrons with special needs, the Stockton Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair- accessible seating, large-type programs, and listening-assistive devices.  Please identify any needs you may have when making a reservation.
