Developed in 2005 by IDA owner/director, Jamie Lipskin, Generations brings together professional dancers throughout the Philadelphia dance community and student dancers to perform a highly entertaining show to raise money for charities that are near and dear to the hearts of the dancers. For this year’s 10th anniversary show, the money raised will be split between two charities; Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

The Generations Dance Concert will take place on Sunday, November 16th at 3:00 p.m. at the Science Center Large Auditorium at Montgomery County Community College. IDA will also host a Generations after-party from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at its Fort Washington studio immediately following the show with a DJ, food, photo booth, and fun.

IDA’s mission is to teach dance as an art form and to give back to the community through dance. IDA raises the funds to produce the concert by holding special dance events for the students. This season, IDA offered a dance team clinic, a student choreography showcase, a Zumba-thon, and a Halloween dance party to raise money for the concert costs.

All money from tickets sales go directly to the charities. Additionally, students and teachers of IDA work together to have a bake sale at the show, as well as high-end raffle baskets to raise even more for the beneficiaries of the concert.

IDA, located in the Philadelphia suburbs, is a school of modern, ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip-hop dance. Devoted to the philosophy that dance is an art, not a competitive sport, IDA provides the ideal dance education for all its students. Students with professional aspirations are able to make a smooth transition into the college and professional dance worlds and students who dance as a fun hobby are able to do so in a positive, supportive, non-competitive environment. The studio’s mission is to teach dance as an art form and to give back to the community through dance. IDA accomplishes that goal throughout the year with performances and fundraisers to support many charities.
