Velocity’s Summer Work/Study program provides the opportunity for participants to receive a discounted attendance for the Seattle Festival of Dance + Improvisation in exchange for admin + operational tasks. Work/Study participants work about five hours per week during the festival. Work/Study positions are given based on an applicant’s expressed commitment to the festival, Work/Study duties, and demonstrated financial need.
The Seattle Festival of Dance + Improvisation is a vibrant month-long immersion into the Seattle dance community, and a chance to dive deep with dance practitioners experimenting at the leading edge of dance technique, creative practices, and dance improvisation. Grounded in SFDI’s nearly 30 years of community-building and intergenerational collaboration, this festival is a gateway for new dancers to connect with artists making work in the Seattle dance and improvisation community, and a chance for Seattle-based artists to train and research with internationally renowned artists.
Work/Study participants work and participate in either: ULTIMATE SFD+I, from July 14 - Aug 11; in the PERFORMANCE Cohorts from July 14 - Aug 3; or the RESEARCH Week Aug 4 - 11.
Work/Study participants will receive a 50% discount.
