Starting August 11, 2019, DANCE This returns to Centrum to bring together young artists with professionals working in the field of dance today. A partnership with the Seattle Theater Group, DANCE This provides the opportunity for high school students to experience a wide range of dance styles and practice in a supportive yet challenging environment.
“The passion that everyone felt for dance gave my daughter an environment where she felt free to really be herself. She made many friends who came to feel like a second family. And she returned home distinctly more confident and mature. I’m so grateful that she got to have this experience.” – Parent of DT Camp participant
