City Hall brings Dance to it’s courtyardJun 28th, 2012 | By BillHebert | Category: Bill Hebert's Behind The Lens
There is nothing like seeing dance outdoors. Don’t get me wrong I love seeing it indoors but once in a while it’s awesome to see it out of the theater and more importantly so accessible to the people. Yesterday City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy presented both BalletX and choreographer Kate Watson-Wallace in the courtyard at City Hall. The performances were free to the public and more importantly attracted not just folks who saw the invite announcement but also passers by. Dance and performance arts in general are always looking for new audience and this was perfect. Kudos to the City for starting to really embrace the arts and thanks to the events other sponsers.
Be sure to check out BalletX coming up soon as they present their summer series at the Wilma July 11th-15th, go to http://balletx.org for more info.
