Are you ready to be dancin’ in the street? This year, we are partnering with Avenue of the Arts to bring Avenue of the Arts Live to the sidewalks around the Kimmel Cultural Campus. The new curated pop-up program will bring a variety of performers -- including musicians, singers, dancers, jugglers, magicians, poets and more -- to the streets around our theaters.
The program will support local artists, engage visitors both to our Cultural Campus or just passing by, and electrify the Avenue of the Arts with more artistic energy than ever before! Performers include Kimmel Cultural Campus regulars including The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble and Philly Lindy Throwdown as well as a wide variety of new and upcoming talent from across the Philadelphia region.
Three Aksha Dance Company
The series will run through December 31st with performances twice every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 6 – 8PM and 8 – 10PM. Artists can be found on the sidewalks just outside the Kimmel Center and Miller Theater, as well as across the street outside the Wilma Theater.
