Chamber Dance Company

Founded in 1990 by Hannah Wiley, the Chamber Dance Company, composed of candidates for the Master of Fine Arts degree in dance, has enjoyed a more than twenty-year commitment from the University and has become a favorite of Seattle audiences. Shortly after its formation, a Seattle Weekly critic described CDC as "a vibrant company with terrific repertory...[making] this annual concert one of the best in Seattle, local or otherwise."

At a time when much of the modern dance canon is being lost to history, the Company's mission to present, record, and archive works of historical and artistic significance is more important than ever. The UW Dance Program is proud to support this effort to ensure these dances are kept alive and accessible for local dance audiences and scholars.
