The season begins October 17 with performances at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. by Philadanco !, a Philadelphia-based company that has helped bridge cultural gaps in the dance world since 1970. The company’s performances will take place at the Manship Theater at the Shaw Center for the Arts.

The ballet company’s season finale will be the revival of its main production of “Rapunzel” on March 26-27. This show is choreographed by Rebecca Acosta and Jonna Cox. With professional guest artists, this show will showcase the talents of the company, as well as the promising dancers of the Youth Ballet. A matinee performance at 2 p.m. will be presented on March 26 and 27.
