Celebrating the life of Kabby Mitchell, III, internationally renowned dancer and choreographer, and devoted arts advocate.

Kabby came to Seattle in 1979 at the invitation of Edna Daigre, of Ewajo Dance Workshop. He became the first Black company member of the Pacific Northwest Ballet and was a soloist with the company until 1984. He also danced with Nederlands Dans Theater and the Dance Theater of Harlem. As an educator, Kabby taught at the PNB School and Evergreen State College, and at dance schools throughout Seattle, Tacoma and around the country. Mitchell choreographed for numerous companies around the region, and made an indelible mark over more than a decade of choreographing Seattle holiday favorite, Black Nativity. His dedication to young artists of color has been felt throughout the region and his most recent project was establishing the Tacoma Urban Performing Arts Center (TUPAC), as artistic director. Last year, Mitchell received the Mayor’s Arts Award honoring him as Cultural Ambassador of the City of Seattle. Mitchell passed away on May 4th at the age of 60. His family, friends and colleagues from around the country will gather to celebrate his memory with tributes, dance and music performances.
