UW's Chamber Dance Company Celebrates 25 Years as a "Living Museum" for Superb Choreography

Dancer Lovers - as opposed to dance scholars - may not quite realize what Seattle has in Chamber Dance Company and its annual performance showcase with the Dance Program at the University of Washington. But former Seattle Times critic Sheila Farr sums it up nicely when she calls it "a living museum of modern dance."

This year, Chamber Dance Company (CDC) celebrates its 25th anniversary and the dance department celebrates its 50th. For five days starting on October 16, these anniversaries will be marked by "Opening Doors: Celebrating 50 Years of Dance at the UW."
