PREVIEWS OF UPCOMING PERFORMANCES
BalletX, America’s premier contemporary ballet led by Artistic & Executive Director Christine Cox, kicks off its 2019-2020 Season with Fall Series 2019 at The Wilma Theater, a limited engagement of 13 performances running Dec. 4-15.
Pennsylvania Ballet announces the return of Philadelphia’s favorite annual holiday tradition, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker.® Presented by Cigna, performances will run from December 6-31 at the Academy of Music.
On December 7th at 8 pm and December 8th at Noon, Philly Kerplop will present Blaow! Cosmos? at FringeArts, 140 N Christopher Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia. Blaow! Cosmos? is a theatrical wormhole. Two dancers are ripped in and out of inter-dimensional vortexes, landing in various alternate realities where they are split between their identities as performers and alien alter-egos.
The Lady Hoofers Tap Ensemble is proud to present its third annual production of THE TAPCRACKER, an original all-tap, all-women version of the holiday classic. 
The Annenberg Center presents PHILADANCO’s eagerly anticipated holiday tradition, Xmas Philes. A highlight of PHILADANCO’s 50th Anniversary season, these performances mark the first time the full production has returned to the Annenberg Center after its commissioning and premiere in 2000, under the inspirational leadership of PHILADANCO’s executive and artistic director Joan Myers Brown.

Support for Creative Placemaking Strategies in U.S. Communities
The Kresge Foundation’s Arts and Culture Program is currently accepting letters of inquiry through the Increase Creative Capacity to Shape Healthier Neighborhoods focus area. The emphasis is on Creative Placemaking activities in neighborhoods and field building efforts that seek to position culture and creativity as drivers of more just communities. Through this focus area the Foundation will support arts and community development organizations that advance innovative approaches to community development that lead to inclusionary practices and policies, and use creative strategies to foster residents’ agency, social cohesion, and narrative change. Priority will be given to organizations that have existing support infrastructure and that demonstrate particularly well-formed Creative Placemaking practices. Nonprofit organizations and government entities from across the country are eligible to apply by January 31, 2020. Visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about the funding guidelines and application process.
