Gather.Town Party

Gather Town is a web-conferencing software like Zoom, but with the added component of seeing the virtual "room" you and others are occupying, and with the ability to move around and interact with other participants based on your locations in the room, just like real life.

The Gather.Town space will open on April 23rd at 6 PM.

Video Cabaret

It's our 25th Birthday, but the pandemic has time feeling all weird. Has it been 25 years, hours, seconds since we've seen you? We knew what we wanted for our birthday was to be with all the artists we miss so much. So for a birthday present, we asked: "Will you make a 25 second long (yes?only 25 seconds!!) performance video gift to unwrap during our 25th birthday party?!?".

April 23 | 8 - 9:30 PM PDT


Join the Race to Donate and help us grow the work of Seattle's artists by racing to the top of the birthday cake and even winning some prizes along the way.

Everything we raise supports our efforts to connect dance artists to resources, encourage collaboration, experimentation, and partnerships.

This is hosted in the #HBD Webinar, alongside Video Cabaret.
