Well we’re definitely in peak performance season. Schools are closing out their performance calendars, talks of upcoming Nutcrackers and other holiday shows are in full bloom and of course home seasons are wrapping up by some of Philly’s resident dance companies. Next week we’ll have BalletX bringing their Fall Series to the Wilma but this past weekend we had Koresh Dance Company under the direction of Roni Koresh bringing “Ev-o-lu-tion” back to the stage. The Koresh Youth Ensemble under the direction of Melissa Rector also performed. Here’s a look back…
