saturday Jan 19

We are delighted to announce that two (!) BDC Faculty Members are 2019 Dance Crush Awardees: Kim Holloway (Reader's Choice for performance) and Kim Lusk (for her work A Dance For Dark Horses). Let's all go cheer them on!

DanceCrush Celebration & Performance: January 19th 7:30pm at the Erickson Theater in Seattle. TICKETS

DanceCrush is SeattleDance’s program designed to recognize and support achievements in local dance. Started in 2016, SeattleDances annually honors dancers, choreographers, and productions we have a total crush on. The aim of DanceCrush is not to identify an objective “best,” but rather to recognize local artists making thoughtful, ambitious work. It is our hope that these recognitions will help promote individual artists and create prestige for the dance community as a whole among other arts genres. Because SeattleDances aims to empower community voices, one DanceCrush is the Reader’s Choice Award, picked from nominations submitted by the Seattle dance community and viewers (that's Kim Holloway!). Each artist will be honored at the DanceCrush Celebration, receive an honorarium, and be featured in an article on published throughout the year on the SeattleDances site – an effort to sustain dialogue and publicity surrounding their work.
