Full Story

Ponder this: The letter P initiates the names of several Philly venues that are presenting some of the best in local dance this spring. From popping to pliés, the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater will host new works by Rennie Harris Puremovement and Philadanco. The Painted Bride is the scene of four outstanding events. At Jeanne Ruddy Dance Company’s Performance Garage, Ruddy stages her own home season in April with guest choreographer Martha Clarke and, sooner, Philadelphia Dance Projects’ series.

Of course, there are other letters, other venues, and other pleasures looming. Here are some of our choices.
