Today, the Seattle Theatre Group announced the 14th annual DANCE This lineup and program to be held today, July 13th and Saturday, July 14th, at 7:30PM, at the historic Moore Theatre, with two student matinee performances (not open to public) on July 12th and 13th. DANCE This brings together local teen dancers and guest artists from diverse communities performing cross-cultural dances-both traditionally rooted and contemporary in form, sharing their culture through the art of dance.

Special guest artist, Danny Soto, will stage "Zombie" an excerpt from the Tony Award winning Broadway Musical, Fela! originally choreographed by Bill T. Jones.
