One of our flagship summer festivals, Strictly Seattle is complete immersion into the Seattle dance scene. Five adult programs inspire beginning-through-professional level dancers with rigorous physical and compositional training in a challenging, invigorating environment.

“Enlightening. Creative. Vibrant.”—2016 Strictly Seattle participant

Strictly Seattle is a supportive community of open experimentation and camaraderie where dancers form alliances for future collaborations. Participants also work with a Seattle choreographer to create a new work, culminating in a professionally produced performance.

REGISTRATION

Registration will open soon.

PROGRAMS

PROFESSIONAL/ADVANCED SESSION
Professional/Advanced sessions are for dancers at an advanced to professional level of training. Dancers develop a new work in collaboration with a nationally renowned choreographer. Professional level technique classes include contemporary dance; ballet; contemporary West African; partnering; improvisation; creative process; Dance Church; and sessions in nutrition, injury prevention, and fostering a dance career.

DANCE FILM TRACK
Dance Film Track is a three-week immersion taking the filmmaker through every step of the process as they create their own short dance film. Participants take up to two technique + creative process classes of their choosing each day, then work with a filmmaker/choreographer and a professional cinematographer, composer, and editor to learn the necessary elements of creating a film—sound and choreographic elements, storyboarding, location scouting, styling, and rehearsing material through the perspective of the camera’s lens. Each student will have the opportunity to shoot their own film to be screened at Strictly Seattle performances.

INTERMEDIATE SESSION
Intermediate Session is for dancers at an intermediate level of training. Dancers in the Intermediate session develop a new work in collaboration with a choreographer. Technique classes include contemporary dance, ballet, and related techniques.
