THE PROJECT

180 Dance Company has drawn the attention of Philadelphia audiences for three seasons, but for the first time, our contemporary ballet company has caught the eye of New York City choreographer, Chip Klose, who approached us with the desire to set a contemporary ballet on our dancers.

All we need now is the financial support to perform these original works before our growing audience. Our company has featured work in the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA), the Philadelphia Dance Collective, the Philly Fringe Festival, and in various other regional events. Now we are ready to take our show on the road (literally) and perform before wide ranging audiences in multiple states.
