James Brown, heralded as the “Godfather of Soul,” was an influencer, innovator, and American dance master in his own right. Get on the Good Foot, conceived by acclaimed choreographer Otis Sallid and in partnership with the famed Apollo Theater, pays tribute to Brown with a rich, soulful expressionism that only the language of dance could convey. Performed by Philadelphia dance company Philadanco and other special guest dancers, the electric, energetic Get on the Good Foot is sure to leave you saying “I Feel Good!”


“If there’s fun to be had, Philadanco will have it. But if there’s deeper purpose, these performers will clarify it, underscore it, and make you pay attention.” Dance Magazine
