    About NextMove Dance

    NextMove Dance


    NextMove Dance’s mission is to inspire passion, joy and appreciation for dance and movement in all its forms in the Philadelphia region.


    Founded in 1979 by Artistic Director Randy Swartz as the American Ballet Competition to support American dancers competing in international dance competitions, the organization legally changed its name in 2005 to Dance Affiliates to more appropriately reflect its mission and programming to promote, support and present dance since 1983. Its annual Dance Celebration series in partnership with Annenberg Center was renowned for 32 years. In October 2015, the organization opened the inaugural season of its new dance series called NextMove, Dance at the Princein Center City Philadelphia, offering more performances and outreach activities through extended engagements and residencies to reach more diverse audiences and give the series the potential to become a powerful player on the city’s cultural landscape with its location within the scope of the Avenue of the Arts. With its second season launch in the fall of 2016, the organization’s name officially changed to NextMove Dance (NMD)


    Randy Swartz began his presenting career in 1970 spearheading the Dance Series at the Walnut Street Theater.  Celebrating his 48th season of presenting world-class dance, Mr. Swartz is regarded as an expert and mentor in his field, having presented hundreds of dance companies and solo artists in more than 1,000 performances; served on a variety of boards, arts advisory panels and academic staffs; and traveled throughout the world to work with renowned dancers, choreographers and dance companies.
