Seattle International Dance Festival
An Explosion of Dance at Seattle International Dance Festival
There’s perhaps no more universal language than dance, and now you can experience the dazzling movements and rhythms of the world’s most innovative contemporary dancers at the Seattle International Dance Festival (SIDF). Stretching to three full weeks of activities, this year’s event at Broadway Performance Hall will showcase thrilling and innovative works from dozens of international artists, along with the best homegrown talent. The festivities kick off with Shuffle, an opening night dance party that’ll get you into the groove of things. The festival also brings back the inaugural James Ray Residency Project, which showcases five all-new works by Seattle-based dance artists, and Art on the Fly, a popular outdoor event that celebrates all forms of art with dance classes, food vendors, live performances and other interactive events. Spotlight on Contemporary Ballet and Spotlight on Seattle Now both feature an exciting mix of short and long pieces by local curators including Donald Byrd, Julie Tobiason, Eva Stone, Betsey Brock and more.
