PHILADELPHIA, PA – Roger Lee Dance’s third concert series “The Fall” runs September 6th through 8th with three performances at The Performance Garage in Philadelphia, PA. The performances combine contemporary jazz dance with soulful music to create a memorable, uplifting, and entertaining experience for the entire family.
This fall Roger Lee Dance introduces an all-new company of dancers, new music by resident music composer Danny Horowitz, a special guest performance by Introspective Movement Project, and four new works by founder, artistic director, and choreographer Roger Lee.
The concert opens with Diary of a Dance Company, a stylized jazz piece featuring 8 dancers and lots of partnering. Next is the concert title piece, The Fall. The piece opens with a women’s section performed to original music by resident music composer Danny Horowitz. It ends with a rhythmic group piece performed to haunting music.
After a 10-minute intermission complete with concessions and company t-shirts, the second act opens with Trinity. The three-section piece explores Praise, Faith, and Prayer through the lens of dance and music. The first section trio and second section quartet are choreographed by Lee. The third section on prayer is choreographed by Sonia James Pennington and performed by her new company Introspective Movement Project. The concert finale is Radioplay, an energetic group piece combining elements of hip-hop, African, jazz, contemporary dance, and popular music. Each concert ends with an engaging Q&A session with the company.
Roger Lee Dance was born in January 2012. Since then, the company has been featured on 6 ABC FYI Philly with Melissa Magee, named a Top 4 Finalist in the KYW and CBS 2013 Small Business Challenge, and promoted at the inaugural Jay-Z Made In America Festival.

In addition to producing live and recorded shows, Roger Lee Dance provides dance classes, marketing support to arts groups, and an online store including DVDs, e-books, apparel, calendars, gift cards, and more.
