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, and in 2014, she created Take It Away Dance, a tap dance and live music company has been presented consistently in Philadelphia and New York. Pam works consistently as a solo artist and her current focus is on creating deeply musical duets with female musicians and artists, including pianist and vocalist, Dena Underwood; violinist, Mandy Wolman; vocalist and percussive dance artist, Jenny Herzog and piano-vocalist, Erica Corbo, with whom she has created a new original concert entitled "Glittering." (2018) A new avenue of interest is music composition: her first original jazz composition for tap dance was published in the Philadelphia Real Book, 1st Ed. and 2nd Ed. (2017, 2018). She has been invited to speak about tap dance and jazz music in Philadelphia, on a variety of nationally-syndicated programs, including Articulate (WHYY) and The Arts Desk (WRTI), and she was recently recognized in the May 2017 issue of Dance Teacher Magazine. She owns Philadelphia's principal studio for percussive dance: Sound Space. For more, please visit www.pamelahetherington.net.
