The B O O ST  dance festival is focused on creating opportunities for Seattle contemporary dance artists of all genres to showcase their work alongside their peers with an ever-broadening audience. The hundreds of artists that call the Northwest home complete each year to be showcased in a handful of festivals; the competition is tough, leaving many eligible and talented artists to self-produce at a high financial cost. BOOST aims to assist in the creation of works by the fresh, up and coming artists as well at the seasoned veteran choreographers    

2016 marks the BOOST dance festival’s sixth season as it moves into a bi-annual event celebrating and presenting northwest dance artists. This year BOOST will take over Broadway Performance Hall  in Capitol Hill for an exciting weekend of dance April 29-30, 2016. 

In addition, BOOSTmeUP, a virtual mini BOOST featuring northwest pre-professional schools, conservatories, and studios will be produced in congruent with the main BOOST festival. BOOSTmeUP will be presented as a matinee series, April  29-April 30, 2016.
