Artistic Director Sarah Slipper and Executive Director Scott Lewis shared an excellent in depth scope on NW Dance Project’s history and what’s made us who we are today, with Tamara Johnson of The World Dances, who noted “Since its founding in 2004, NW Dance Project has been devoted to creating opportunities for dancers and choreographers. The company performs exclusively original works, around 250 so far…Not surprisingly, this environment requires a special kind of artist…In addition to feeling valued and empowered as artists, the dancers are also inspired to take risks because of the company’s uncommonly comprehensive benefits. The dancers all receive 100% medical, dental, and vision coverage. The security of health coverage and robust contracts provides a stable foundation from which to take chances…NW Dance Project also prepares dancers to take on leadership roles in the future.”
