The Performance Garage has a professionally outfitted theater that is both welcoming and charming. The theater features exposed brick walls, a lofted ceiling, and a stage that is within arms reach of performers. The theater offers an intimate setting to view dance works, allowing for a more engaging encounter with the performers. You will feel like you are a part of the show! 


The Performance Garage hosts performances ranging from experimental works by emerging artists to notable repertoires by your favorite dance companies. We have been a venue for the Philadelphia Fringe Festival since 2009, and annually host groups participating in the city wide celebration.

The Philadelphia Ballet, formerly Pennsylvania Ballet, was founded in 1963 to bring the best in dance to Philadelphia and to find local talent and develop those artists into world-class performers.

With Angel Corella’s appointment as the new artistic director in 2014, the company moved into its next, exciting stage of development. Mr. Corella’s experience and accomplishments, both as a dancer and director of his own company in Spain, have helped the company embody the increasingly diverse and broadening landscape of dance.


The Performance Garage offers a brand-new experience for our patrons, where both dancers and audience members will be in very close proximity. This intimate venue with only 70 seats will highlight the electricity that exists between performer and patron—a unique and powerful thread that connects a room full of people who are experiencing something together. This is where we filmed our digital season, and we are excited to bring live audiences into this unique space.

After careful consideration and due to the intimate nature of the venue, we have implemented the following safety measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees, staff, production crew, and dancers:

  • All attendees must show proof of vaccination. We will not accept a negative Covid test for admittance.

  • All attendees must be over the age of 12.

  • All attendees must be masked at all times. The dancers will not be masked while performing.

  • Due to the size and nature of the venue, we will not be able to allow for social distancing.  Guests will be sitting side by side.

The Performance Garage is located in a largely residential neighborhood and therefore parking in the area is extremely limited. We suggest using a rideshare or taxi service or taking the Broad Street Line to Spring Garden. Please click here for more information on getting to the Performance Garage.
