Pamela Hetherington Pamela Hetherington

Pamela Hetherington is a professional dancer, choreographer, educator, and artistic director. A Philadelphia native, she was a principle dancer with Tap Team Two & Company, under the direction of Robert F. Burden, Jr., from 1996-2011, during which time she performed widely in major theaters and festivals all over Philadelphia and the East Coast. Those experiences led her to imagine and produce dozens of tap dance and live music events in Philadelphia, starting in 2007. In 2014, she created Take It Away Dance, a tap dance and live music company that is the sound of Philadelphia. Her work has been presented by Small Stakes Philly, Jazz Bridge, The Philadelphia Jazz Project, Fringearts, the Lehigh Valley Dance Exchange, the Reading Terminal Market, Creative Philadelphia, Koresh Dance Company, Dixon Place, the Barnes Foundation and Zakarak Productions. She has received artistic support from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (2014-2017), Small but Mighty Arts (2014), and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund (2016-2017). Her first original jazz composition for tap dance is published in the Philadelphia Real Book, 1st Edition (Feb. 2017).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
