Philadelphia has a particular penchant for the performing and visual arts.

Renowned for its live music scene, Philadelphia’s vibrant rock, rap, jazz and pop venues located in neighborhoods all across the city showcase the world’s most buzzed-about musicians. That’s not to mention the city’s renowned classical groups, which includes The Philadelphia Orchestra, one of the world’s greatest classical music organizations and one of the most prolific recording acts in history.

The Avenue of the Arts, also known as Broad Street, features many of the city’s premier theater and dance venues, while small, intimate spaces devoted to experimental ventures specialize in everything from avant-garde to musicals, recent hit plays to original scripts, and classics to children’s theater.

With dozens of professional dance companies and a number of excellent venues, Philadelphia boasts an internationally renowned modern dance company, a fabulous ballet troupe and African, hip-hop, tap, salsa, Flamenco and postmodern ensembles.
