The Trocadero Theatre has seen many different shapes and forms throughout the 149 years since it opened as the Arch Street Opera House. Most people today know it as a concert venue that also books comedians and has weekly movie screenings, but for its longest-stretch, the theatre was known solely as the “Troc,” when it was a burlesque theatre for about 70 years. Here are some photos of the famed theatre throughout the past 100 years.

Stepping from the sidewalk of Washington Avenue and into the headquarters of BalletX is like flowing into another dimension. Entering a space where one gets to witness the hard work that goes into producing greatness, before dancers are costumed and the work is polished on stage before the public - is entirely awesome. PhillyVoice was warmly-welcomed into the Balletx headquarters to photograph company dancers as they tirelessly rehearsed the powerful, emotional and elegant choreography in their upcoming Spring Series performance. Being up close in an environment where you can hear the breath and see the sweat of the dancers was a reminder of the hearts that were poured into these collaborations. The Spring Series includes ballets from three choreographers, including the East Coast premiere of Express by Lil Buck - the freestyle dancer and choreographer that you might have seen dancing on walls in an Apple Airpods commercial. This pop-inspired performance combines ballet, the street-style dance, "Memphis jookin" and custom Nikes on the stage. The series also brings the world premiere of Steep Drop, Euphoric, a breathtaking collaboration by movement visionary Nicole Fonte in his third BalletX production, and Off the Canvas by Katarzyna Skarpetowska, a Bessie Award nominee and BalletX’s 2019 Choreographic Fellow.The dance company will be preforming their Spring Series at the Wilma Theater from Wednesday, March 6 though Sunday March 17. More information and tickets can be found on the company’s website.
