Koresh Artist Showcase
Koresh Artist Showcase







The Koresh Artist Showcase is an initiative that was created to give emerging talent in the community a platform to present their work. Each showcase presents work by a diverse group of local performers and there is no cost for participants. This gives artists in the community more opportunities for performance and the chance to connect with a wider audience in an intimate setting.

Showcases at Koresh offer the Philadelphia community a chance to discover new artists as well as new styles of dance. Some of our past participants have included Sammy Reyes, Alchemy Dance Company, Crystal Frazier, Project Moshen, Opus 1 Dance, Shannon Murphy, Ballet Fleming, Teresa VanDenend Sorge, Xhale Dance Company, Lin Batsheva Kahn and many more!

The Koresh Artist Showcase is held at our company's home, where one of the the studios is turned into a black box theater. Showcases are held on Saturday and Sunday evenings several times throughout the year and each performance lasts approximately 45-50 minutes. Tickets are just $12 per person and are available for purchase at the door one hour prior to showtime.


Accepted applicants will receive:

- A performance opportunity at no cost
- Marketing support
- Technical support (lighting and sound)

- Professional Photography form the performance

- Professional video copy of the performance

Participation in the showcases may lead to an invitation to perform during our annual Come Together Dance Festival at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre.
