Community is a major part of dance, and we have found that, at least around Seattle, high school teams lack a greater dance community to be a part of. Due to transportation challenges and time demands, high school dancers do not always get the chance to engage with the vibrant dance community that Seattle has to offer. Even within their own high schools, dance teams and clubs can feel isolated and alone.
To remedy this, we created the foundry10 Dance Alliance to bring together the high school communities into one big, vibrant, diverse group.
Check out the group at the link above, and take a look at this report to see what we have learned from creating this community.
