DANCE This Artist in Residence


The DANCE This Artist Residency is designed to support choreographers in the greater Seattle-area in their artistic development of original work. Selected choreographers will be offered rehearsal space, time, support along with a financial budget to aid this project.

The residency must be used to adapt, explore and create a new ensemble work that will be premiered at STG’s DANCE This 25th Anniversary Performance. Choreographers will provide showings throughout the process and be provided feedback from show producers and local industry artists.

All forms and styles of dance will be considered with an emphasis on artists of color, works that explore cultural backgrounds, history and/or traditions as well artists who have not had choreography previously presented for any Education + Community Engagement productions.
