About Us -

Philly Dance Fest was developed as a way to showcase area dance companies and inspiring artists, exposing audiences to Philadelphia’s vibrant dance and performing arts community.

This project was actually conceived from the development and expansion of a web site called However, with the recognition of the importance of the performing arts in serving the community, a real need still exists in providing accessible performance opportunities for dancers and a means to connect with new audiences.

Music & Motion Dance, a youth based pre-professional company, has funded, developed and currently maintains This vital web site serves as a forum for the promotion of dance companies and dance performances in the Greater Philadelphia Region. It also provides for discussion groups on everything from choreography to funding sources, all dance styles from ballet to hip hop, as well as such topics as health and fitness for dancers and locating supportive services from photographers to dance agents. This forum was implemented as a way of uniting the dance community as well as providing a vehicle for promoting dance in the region to the general public. Additional web projects have included a monthly eNewsletter, a dance blog, a comprehensive dance calendar as well as an on line directory of dance companies, schools and related resources.
