January Photo Recap

January ushered in a new year full of new dance on Seattle stages. We saw annual shows like Whim W'Him and Velocity's pressure-cooker, The Bridge Project as well as performances by University of Washington students. We also heard from one of Pacific Northwest Ballet's leading ladies about her recent return to the company. Brush up on what you missed with the photos below, and don't forget to stop by our next Dance CHAT to discuss what you saw this month!

Blast from the Past

January is host to several annual shows in Seattle: Whim W'Him at Cornish Playhouse and The Bridge Project at Velocity Dance Center. We were happy to cover both events in 2015 and again this year in 2016. Reminisce with our reviews from last year and reflect on where the performances took us this year. 
We appreciate any level of support. All donations are tax-deductible. 
SeattleDances is an Associated Program of Shunpike.
