We often speak of Philadelphia treasures, and Joan Myers Brown has been one of the city’s most valuable assets for the last 40 years. Forty years!
As founder and artistic director of Philadanco – the Philadelphia Dance Company – her reach here and around the world has won her fond acclaim, including this year’s Philadelphia Award. Thursday’s 40th-anniversary opening performance at the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theater portended nothing but more smooth sailing for this helmswoman and her brilliant company.
