3rd Shift Dance / Year 7 Fundraiser

For 7 Years, 3rd Shift Dance has been 100% self funded and while programing has grown + collaborations throughout the Pacific Northwest are continuing to be a huge focus, our income has been a limiting factor to being able to fully achieve our dreams. Today we make the first step at reaching for that brass ring by asking for your support. 

Season 7 sees the company presenting Shift Sessions 5 featuring live music by Adra Boo + Caela Bailey December 2017 at Velocity Dance Center, Shift Sessions 6 featuring live music by Mike illvester + Future Shock May 2018 at Fred Wildlife Refuge, and the return to our popular showcase series Battle for the Dance Belt April 2018 at Broadway Performance Hall featuring 20 choreographers as well as choreographic commissions by choreographers Ian Howe and Alli Montecillo. Through our years, we've presented over 100 choreographers at our events + 100s of dancers as well as music video collaborations with Naomi Wachira, Caela Bailey, and Vespera and live collaborations with Naomi, Whitney Mongé, The Bad Tenants, Fly Moon Royalty, Aksion, and Dark Hip Falls. Help us continue our efforts to bridge the music and dance communities of Seattle today and aide in us paying our dancers + collaborators living wages, help cover the cost of our venues, and the expense of costumes, videography, and rehearsal space costs.  

Thank you so much for your consideration today and hope to see you at our events in Season 7!
