“ Philadanco’s dancers are a miracle of skill and energy. They work in a range of dioms most companies don’t even try to possess.”—Dance Magazine

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the company will present the Boston premiere of By Way of the Funk, a new work by the founder and artistic director of Urban Bush Women, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, set to the music of Funkadelic and Parliament, as well as other works.
