The Koresh Dance Company is proud to announce the 6th annual Come Together Dance Festival, November 20-24 at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre. This festival celebrates Philadelphia’s rich and diverse artistic landscape over five nights.

The Festival, which began in 2013, celebrates the diversity, creativity, and technical excellence of Philadelphia’s dance community. From November 20-24, five mixed programs will stage an eclectic range of styles, juxtaposing genres from hip hop, tap, and jazz to ballet, modern, contemporary dance, and acrobatic physical theatre. The Festival’s Saturday night program will feature some of Philadelphia’s staple touring companies performing all in one program!

With the festival, Koresh Dance Company aims to increase access to dance and awareness of the city’s rich movement culture. Over 100 dance companies were either invited or applied to participate in the 2019 Come Together Dance Festival. The final roster includes internationally acclaimed companies such as Brian Sanders’ JUNK,  Koresh Dance Company, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Rennie Harris Puremovement.

This festival gives the opportunity for emerging dance companies and choreographers to share a stage with internationally hailed dance companies. Behind the scenes, all featured companies are provided with a forum to interact with each other and the community with a goal of cross-pollination of ideas and audiences.  In an effort to also expand the touring opportunities of Philadelphia based dance companies, Koresh hosts dance presenters who can provide touring opportunities. Ultimately, the festival offers smaller Philadelphia dance companies the opportunity to receive professional production and audience-building support with the long term goal of building a sustainable future for art communities in Philadelphia.

The Come Together Dance Festival attracts support from foundations dedicated to artistic and cultural development. This year’s Festival is supported by The Dexter F. & Dorothy H. Baker Foundation.
