BE A LEADER. MAKE DANCE ESSENTIAL. MAKE A DONATION TODAY!
When you give to Velocity, you support:
Annually we employ 45+ artists, commission and present 15+ new works, offer low cost rehearsal space to 150+ independent choreographers, give away 1,000+ hours of free rehearsal space through our residency programs, and send Seattle artists on their first national tours.
We believe democracy in action means everyone with the desire to dance should have the opportunity. Our work/study program provides need-based financial aid to dedicated students. In 2011-2012 Velocity awarded 36 scholarships.
Since 1996 Velocity has commissioned 151+ new works and presented 175+ premieres by some of Seattle’s strongest artists and world-class innovators in stage works, film, installation and hybrid forms.
With a daily professional class open to the community; over 38 weekly movement classes ranging from modern to ballet to Indian Odissi; and world-class summer dance intensives Strictly Seattle and the Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation, Velocity is the essential catalyst for contemporary dance and movement-based practices in the Pacific Northwest.
Velocity is the place where artists take risks. Through our Artist-in-Residence and Creative Resident program, Made in Seattle, Investigative Movement Practices classes, Master Class Series and more, we foster an environment where diverse dance practices flourish.
Our free humanities programming and online journal STANCE engage minds and build meaningful links between artists and the community. We invite one and all into open, thoughtful conversations on issues in contemporary art and society. With 30,000 annual site visits, Velocity welcomes community members new to dance every day.
