NWDT dancers have the opportunity to improve technique, learn classical and contemporary works, explore different styles of dance, increase choreography learning skills, gain pre-professional performing experience, and work with renown choreographers. Below are some words from NWDT alumni about their experience as a NWDT company member.

Northwest Dance Theatre Auditions


“NWDT has helped me build the strength and sense of commitment I need to dance in college and pursue a dance career. NWDT has been a pivotal part of my dance training, and I don’t think I’d be where I am today without it.”

“My work with NWDT not only pushed me to be a better dancer, but also helped me in academic studies. I learned how to manage my time efficiently and to stay calm even under stress.”

“The extra four or five hours a week I spend in the studio for company rehearsals has helped me improve my technique because I get to dance more, so I get stronger by coming to rehearsal.”
