Dance in Seattle

A number of recognized dance companies are putting both feet forward in Seattle. Some are producing exquisite renditions of classic pieces, while others are projecting a more modern artistic vision.

Pacific Northwest Ballet is widely recognized as one of the country’s premiere regional dance companies. Founded in 1972, it is now delighting audiences under the artistic leadership of Peter Boal, a well-regarded former dancer with a distinguished 22 year career with the New York City Ballet. The sheer brilliance of the choreographers and dancers will captivate you. If you want to put on your own dancing shoes, don’t miss the Century Ballroom. With its elegantly draped balconies and glossy wood floors, it sets the mood to swing or salsa, and for those of us with two left feet, lessons are usually offered before the dance. You can usually find top international and national companies performing at The Paramount Theatre, On the Boards or the UW World Series at Meany Hall, or catch our up-and-coming artists at Cornish College of the Arts.
