Dance Advance Sponsors a European Invasion
We recently received notification of our 10th consecutive Dance Advance award! We were awarded $88,000 to present two European choreographers, for the first time in Philadelphia, at the 2008 Live Arts Festival. Dance Advance is a program of the Philadelphia Center for Arts and Heritage, funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and administered by The University of the Arts.
