About the project and the company

Dare to Dance Seattle is seeking local dance artists and groups to conduct workshops in our first-ever summer outdoor festival, supported by an Arts in the Parks grant from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. The festival combines dance performances, audience-participation workshops, and cultural exchange. There will be four festival dates in July.

Our mission is to provide a rich variety of performing arts opportunities, celebrate diversity, and support culturally vibrant communities. We strive to build connections and engage people in new inspirational experiences that broaden their lives. We hope you will join us in this worthwhile endeavor! An honorarium will be provided for each workshop.
