A professional dance company that has been praised as “a miracle of skill and energy” is coming to the Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University.

The Philadelphia Dance Company will perform at the PAC on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.

Also known as Philadanco, the company has taken its modern contemporary repertoire to millions of people around the world via television appearances and international tours.

Tickets for Philadanco’s performance at Georgia Southern are $30 per person for the general public. Georgia Southern faculty, staff and students will receive a $5 discount for each ticket.

In addition, if any tickets are available 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the performance, any Georgia Southern student with a valid University ID can purchase one ticket for $10.

Philadanco was founded by Joan Myers Brown in 1970. The company includes a professional performing company, a 40-week instruction and training program, a six-week summer training program and an apprentice group.

The professional company that will appear at Georgia Southern typically gives more than 50 performances and 45 residencies each year. According to Dance Magazine, “Philadanco’s dancers are a miracle of skill and energy. The work in a range of idioms most companies don’t even try to possess…(It is) a company that can do more than just anything. It can represent the possibilities of human spirit through dance.”

The PAC is located on the Georgia Southern campus at the corner of Chandler Road and Plant Drive. The box office is open every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The box office is also open one hour prior to the start of each performance.
