PhiladelphiaDANCE.org was established in 2005 by Steven Weisz as a resource and hub for dance related information, advocacy and service in the greater Philadelphia region. At the core of its mission is the expansion and development of new audiences for dance through education, marketing, outreach, networking and use of current technologies. PhiladelphiaDANCE.org seeks to promote to the public the wealth of dance experiences available in the region. In addition, PhiladelphiaDANCE.org strives to bring together resources and information required by dancers, dance companies, choreographers, dance writers, dance organizations, dance practitioners, audiences, media, philanthropists and policy makers. By facilitating collaboration between these entities, it is our hope to create an even stronger dance community and presence for dance and the arts in Philadelphia.
PhiladelphiaDANCE.org acknowledges the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Nation on this traditional territory from which we operate. We acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land. This acknowledgment by itself is a small gesture. It will only become meaningful when coupled with authentic relationships and informed action.
PhiladelphiaDANCE.org stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in its fight for freedom, liberation, and justice and in demanding acknowledgment and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black lives. We join BLM in their call for sustainable solutions that affirm the well-being and prosperity of Black lives. We join in their call for our global society to confront, combat, and educate the populace about racism and racializing. We join in their call for accountability for the history of enslavement, white supremacy, abuse, denigration, and dehumanization of Black lives in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
PhiladelphiaDANCE.org believes that all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, should be able to enjoy the full range of human rights, without exception.
We are deeply saddened by the acts of violence against the AAPI communities, and we stand firmly in solidarity with our AAPI artists, performers, neighbors, friends, and co-workers in condemning all forms of hate and violence.
