The Company’s mission is to share its passion for dance by connecting to its audience with emotionally resonant and topically relevant work. And to expand this audience in an inclusive manner.
Since arriving in Seattle from New York in 2001, KDC’s programming has been seen throughout the west coast and abroad by over 40,000 people with works ranging from site-specific pieces to staged, full-length interdisciplinary productions.
Beginning at New York University in 1986 and transforming into a formal performing and touring company in 1990, the company’s work has been presented in ten countries, on three continents, in festivals and venues such as The Spoleto Festival USA, Dias de Dansa/Festival GREC (Barcelona), the World Expo (Lisbon,) and many others. It has conducted international residencies, sponsors a summer dance program at Wild Meadows Farm in Pennsylvania, and founded the annual Seattle International Dance Festival – Beyond the Threshold.
