*Please notice! Most shows and events in the Philadelphia area have been postponed and moved to new dates or they have been canceled due to Covid-19. Hopefully this will end soon and we can all get back to attending and enjoying the shows we all love.
Everyone is being affected in different ways including artists who are losing work and creative outlets. Please think of supporting your favorite artists by purchasing digital and physical merchandise through or any private website where they sell their work. Lets all chip in and help sustain local artists by supporting the!
We will be posting shows  and rescheduled dates once things have been set back into balance and it is healthy to do so. In the meantime, take care of yourself and be well.

Pamela Hetherington:
I am a professional tap dancer, choreographer, educator, and artistic director working in Philadelphia. My artistic work aims to expand the boundaries of jazz tap, both as a soloist, a choreographer, and a composer. I direct Take It Away Dance, a tap dance and jazz music company, and I own Sound Space Performing Arts, a percussive dance space in North Philadelphia.
In December 2015, I created a four part piece called "Winter Songs," which was a collaboration between myself and the experimental string trio, Murmuration. We made a new concert in tap dance, violin, cello, bass and original text. Five years later, from 50 feet apart, Josh Machiz and I will revisit the material and see what happens.
