Koresh Dance Company will host its third annual Come Together Dance Festival Wednesday, July 22 through Sunday, July 26. Taking place at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, the festival includes performances by 33 local dance companies, post-show talk backs with artistic directors and workshops.
Brian Sanders' JUNK, Philadanco, SHARP and The Rock School are just a few of the groups scheduled to perform over five days. Each night of the festival will feature mixed-genre programs that include modern, tap, ballet, hip-hop and more. Essentially, the schedule consists of the best of Philly's dance scene, all under one roof.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights' shows will each feature a talk-back after the performance. Tuesday through Friday $25 workshops will be held, hosted each afternoon in turn by Raphael Xavier, Sakshi Productions, Koresh Dance Company and Ballet Inc. For Philadelphia Dance Day, the final workshop on Saturday, July 25 will be free and for beginners.
