This year's highly anticipated Seattle International Dance Festival (SIDF) and Art on the Fly is bigger than ever with extra days and a larger venue for all indoor performances.

This year the festival runs for 17 days from June 9-25; the popular Art on the Fly kicks things off one-week prior on Saturday June 3. SIDF's astonishing array of 50+ performances dazzles with more than 100 artists from China, Portugal, Switzerland, Russia, India, the West Coast and Seattle. The popular Spotlight on Seattle Series returns with Spotlight: Artist's Perspective, Spotlight on Seattle Now and a two-night program for Spotlight on Contemporary Ballet. Curators for the Spotlight events include: Donald Byrd, Cyrus Khambatta, Marlo Ariz, Eva Stone, Deb Wolf, Constanze Villines and Erin Boyt. The festival's popular Sanity Cafe returns for a 4th year on June 12. SIDF has added a special interactive two-part performance event titled [FRAGILE] on June 19 and 21. The Threshold Institute, a workshop for aspiring dancers, runs from June 19-24 and registered dancers study with guest teachers from the festival's roster.

Tickets to paid performances are $23 in advance, $27 at the door (students are $18 in advance, $22 at the door). A 2-show pass is $38, the All Festival Pass (12 unique shows, 16 in all) is $75 and the Premium Pass ($125, includes priority seating, complimentary beverages and entrance to the closing night VIP party.)
