Dancefusion, Philadelphia’s dynamic modern dance repertory company will present Dancefusion Back To Now, a virtual concert featuring excerpts of works from the past 10 years and three new works for 2020.
Dancefusion will present a video time-capsule of concerts from “Back” 10 years, featuring excerpts of Dancefusion’s reconstructed works by legendary choreographers Anna Sokolow, Mary Anthony, José Limón and Pauline Koner.

Yackel, Omar Frederic Pratt and Masad Qawishabazz.
The virtual concert will move to “Now” with three new video works. Two works are choreographed by Jennifer D. Yackel. Ruby is a solo created, performed, and edited by Jennifer D. Yackel, set to music of Claude Debussy and a new full company work, Untitled, edited by Douglas E. Draper Jr. and set to Dave Brubeck’s “Take 5.” Omar Frederick Pratt will complete the virtual program with a new dynamic work featuring the full company.
Audience will be instructed to go to our YouTube channel to view our performance. Recommended for ages 18+. The program will consist of many dance works. However, one of the works will deal with mental depression and dancers will talk as part of the video. All other works are pure dance (no talking) and have content that is appropriate for audiences of all ages.
