Dare to Dance Incubation
(Not an Audition)

Sunday June 10, 2-4pm

Artspace Hiawatha Lofts
843 Hiawatha Pl S, Seattle WA 98144 

Dare to Dance is not just an annual dance show, it’s a community. So to formally kick off the Dare to Dance “season” of 2018, we’re hosting an Incubation (not Audition).

If you’re interested in doing ANYTHING AT ALL with Dare to Dance 8 (Sept 28-29), we’d like you to come to this event.

~ If you like the idea of participating in a community-led dance performance (even if you’re not totally confident of your dance skills), come meet us and see if there’s a good fit for you.

~ If you’ve been involved with D2D in the past and would like to be involved this year, come talk to other dancers, choreographers, stage hands, and dance enthusiasts.

~ If you’re a choreographer and you have your idea and all your dancers set, come answer questions from people who are less confirmed but interested in stepping up.

~ If you’ve danced and are looking for a piece (or three) to join, come meet with choreographers and other dancers.

Bring your creativity, wear comfortable shoes, and don’t be surprised if your toes start tapping!

Some say to dance like no one is watching. We prefer to dance like we mean it, like we believe in ourselves and to inspire those who may have hesitated before to take that first step onto the dance floor. Uniting more than 50 dancers and choreographers on one stage, “Dare to Dance 7” offered a vibrant and diverse experience reflecting the voices of many different communities and dance styles. From Bachata to Bollywood, from Lyrical to Waacking, this kaleidoscopic production transported audience to numerous worlds with each piece telling a unique story. Partial funding by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.

Featured Choreographers & Artists: Ben Chi, Brynn Tweeddale & Esteban Parreno, Eury Rivera, Jonathan Ibarra (Mexico), Miyoung Seul Margolis, Nivedita Awasthi, Sandi Olson, Sarah Gordon & Johnny Bryant, Richard Knowles III, Zheng Wang, Rainier Dance Center, Sueños de Salsa Studio.
