Philadelphia, PA – (March 3, 2019) – SHARP Dance Company, a Philadelphia-based modern dance company, is pleased to announce their home season performance of “669” at the National Museum of American Jewish History. “669” premiered in 2017 at the Performance Garage to rave reviews.

“669” was inspired by the story of Nicholas Winton, a man who saved 669 children from the Holocaust. The performance follows the stories of the parents who chose to give their children away in order to save them, the woman who was sent in as a spy and ultimately changed sides to help Winton, and the children themselves as they went on to live extraordinary lives and raise families of their own.

The evening will also contain several crowd favorites from the SHARP repertoire including “Blind Faith”, “Woman’s Story”, and “I Thought of You Again”

SHARP Dance Company strives to bring together a company of strong dancers to perform work with a new vision. Their mission is to translate raw human emotion utilizing contemporary movement to connect the audience through individual interpretation. With a theory of “meaning behind movement”, which is shown prominently throughout their work, SHARP believes dance should be more than a performance, it should be an experience.
