SEATTLE FESTIVAL OF DANCE + IMPROVISATION
JULY 11 — AUG 8, 2021
An immersive month of in-person and online movement intensives and classes with exceptional local and national faculty + events and pop-up performances.
For the past 27 years, the Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation (originally founded by Dance Art Group) has been a yearly convening of leading movement practitioners. This year we’re combining Strictly Seattle and SFDI into a full month of classes and intensives, socially distanced dance events and performances, and other online and in-person experiences. Register for individual classes and intensives to build your own schedule, or sign up for a range of digital, hybrid, or in-person festival passes to experience it all.

velocity in transition
Our transition initiative began in Fall 2020 to re-envision Velocity’s future. Our goal in this initiative is to fully center artists, and in particular, BIPOC artists, in four key areas: programming, leadership, organizational processes, and allocation of our space and financial and other resources. Transition projects in progress include a mission + vision update; Velocity Faculty Artist Circle; Velocity Artist Index; and Space Acquisition, Fundraising and Arts + Tech committees open to community members.
