SHARP Dance Company, a Philadelphia-based modern dance company, is pleased to announce their home season performance of “669” at the National Museum of American Jewish History. “669” premiered in 2017 at the Performance Garage to rave reviews.
“669” was inspired by the story of Nicholas Winton, a man who saved 669 children from the Holocaust. The performance follows the stories of the parents who chose to give their children away in order to save them, the woman who was sent in as a spy and ultimately changed sides to help Winton, and the children themselves as they went on to live extraordinary lives and raise families of their own.
The evening will also contain several crowd favorites from the SHARP repertoire including “Blind Faith”, “Woman’s Story”, and “I Thought of You Again”
“They are a company with a heartbeat,” said Ashabi Rich for The Dance Journal. “They get the whimsical, the fantastical, the drama and imbue it with their all. SHARP packs a lot of great choreography and dance into a very enjoyable and fulfilling hour.”

Their mission is to translate raw human emotion utilizing contemporary movement to connect the audience through individual interpretation.
