The Performance Garage offers a variety of programming throughout the year that benefits dancers at every stage of their career and enhances the experience of audience members. Join us for panel discussions, open rehearsals, performances, dance films, and more.



DanceVisions Residency program is a one-year choreographic residency where the selected artist participates in our HubChats lecture series, our DanceFilms series, our YouthMoves classes, and our OpenRehearsal programs.

Each DanceVisions residency culminates in the premiere performance of their new choreographic work. DanceVisions was conceived by co-founder Jeanne Ruddy to nurture and encourage mid-career local choreographers  to have the chance to have a full year of creation time in a fully supported environment and to expand their engagement with the community and build their audience.



YouthMoves is our community engagement program that provides free after school dance program for neighborhood youth along with a wide range of educational opportunities onsite.



The Performance Garage is committed to creating a more meaningful dialogue between artists and audiences, for people of all ages and experience levels.

“The Performance Garage has given me the tools and support to bring my artistic visions to fruition. Their programming is vital to the of emerging Philadelphia choreographers."


Dawn Marie Bazemore | 2019 DanceVisions Resident Artist
