Saturday Evening and Late Night Dance
We are STOKED to bring PHLeX to the beautiful ballroom of the Commodore Barry Club Friday to Saturday in May!
This beautiful venue is located in Mount Airy, a Philly neighborhood known for its culturally diverse community and architectural styles. It’s just a short walk or drive from Chestnut Hill, known for its historic Victorian mansions and artsy downtown. Germantown Avenue runs through the area, it’s cobblestoned street lined with artisan shops and galleries. Wissahickon Valley Park, where beautiful hikes and scenery await you, borders both neighborhoods.

Saturday Afternoon Dance
Harmony Studios has been the home of Jazz Attack for the last year, and it’s right in the heart of the city where the action is happening!

Pig Iron Theater Company
Sunday Afternoon Dance
The beautiful dance halls of Pig Iron Theater Company are nestled in the buzzing, vibrant Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown. Cool Fishtown is where Philly’s culinary, art and music trends take off. A magnet for hipsters and creative types, the former working-class neighborhood marks the first Friday of the month by opening the galleries and studios along Frankford Avenue to the public. The vibrant nightlife includes hip bistros, beer gardens and a retro arcade. Indie bands perform at the landmark Johnny Brenda’s, a lauded gastropub.
We’re excited to bring the dancers of PHLeX to this bustling neighborhood for amazing shops, restaurants, coffee nooks, and of course, a favorite local band!
