A ten-day celebration of local and International dance artists!

About the Project

Seattle International Dance Festival (SIDF), needs your help bringing 200 international, national and local artists together for its 15-day celebration of contemporary dance- much of it FREE! 2017 marks the 12th year of SIDF celebrating dance in all its forms, enlivening and enriching the local community and supporting the work of local artists as well as the connecting those artists and Seattle to the larger international dance world. Next year’s international artists include: Collectivo Cla from Costa Rica, Sapphire Dance Company from Kolkata, India, and Serial Paradise from Bucharest, Romania as well as many Seattle and regional artists.

SIDF also offers classes for those who wish to further their study of dance and provide scholarships to those in need. Each year, the festival kicks off with Art on the Fly, a free, day-long, outdoor, kid friendly event with interactive activities and performances ranging from the fleeting and fanciful to the languorous. Evening performances by local and international artists take place at theaters around Seattle including Cornish and Broadway Performance Hall. The festival will take place from June 9-25, 2017.This Power2Give campaign, taking place during the 2016 festival will help the bring awareness to this great Seattle event. Please enjoy the 2016 festival and help us build support and momentum for artists in our community for next year. If you are inspired by a show in 2016, donate to the effort to give local artists a place to share their work in next year’s festival. Ticket sales cover only 35% of our actual costs of running SIDF. We are reaching out to the public through Power2Give to sustain the festival for the benefit of the artistic community, audiences, and the cultural wellbeing of our entire community.

Your donation will go a long way toward helping us to pay our artists and production staff for their time, talent, and travel expenses. We are grateful for your support as we work to create a viable, self-sustaining dance festival that encourages deeper cultural understanding, supports artists near and far, and enriches our community.
