Welcome to Seattle Center

Choose a language

Seattle Center offers Student Showcases in order to provide entertainment as part of seasonal events, and to give public and private schools and youth performance groups the opportunity to share their artistic accomplishments with family, friends and the public.

In accordance with CDC guidelines and the restrictions in place with regard to indoor gatherings, Seattle Center unfortunately will not be able to produce an in-person Student Showcase Winterfest program this year.
Instead, we invite you to participate in this Virtual Student Showcase platform, featuring video content from schools and youth arts training programs.

Snapshots: A Response to Covid-19 | Kaleidoscope Dance Company

This video project was created by Kaleidoscope Dance Company in response to the social distancing measures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the cancellation of our annual Spring Concert. The dancers were asked to capture a 20-second solo of themselves in a special place in their homes or outdoor spaces. The solos convey current responses to the coronavirus and the impact the “new normal” is having on their lives. Each dancer selected two or three words to express their feelings through movement.

Kaleidoscope Dance Company, founded in 1981, is made up of youth ages 7-17 and is based in Seattle. www.creativedance.org

Song: Migration
Artist: Bonobo
Director: Anna Mansbridge
Founder: Anne Green Gilbert
