“. . . it’s rare that the rest of us get a direct invitation to these kinds of conversations—the kinds of conversations that make dance seem less tricky and intimidating,
and can help us all to look a little more closely.”

— Melody Datz Hansen, The Stranger Slog

THE SPEAKEASY SERIES is Velocity-curated, community-hosted, series of panel discussions, audience labs, show + tells, performance lectures, informal community conversations and/or other formats. Each speakeasy has a focus on provocative or timely issues including aesthetics, philosophy, or the intersection of dance and social justice.  The purpose of the Speakeasy Series is to encourage cross-disciplinary dialogue, promote civic engagement, create meaningful links between artists and communities, and support initiatives at the cutting edge of change.

All Speakeasy events are free or by suggested donation, and open to the public.
