2020 Teachers’ Seminar POSTPONED

You may have heard the news about cancellation of public gatherings of more than 50 people, and closure of public schools in King County in order to contain the spread of COVID-19 here in Seattle. We have been in close contact with officials about the impact of novel coronavirus on our community, and understand the need to take significant measures to protect the health of our citizens.

The safety of our students, artists, staff, audiences, and everyone at Pacific Northwest Ballet is our top priority. Given these developments and after much thought and consideration, we have decided to postpone our 2020 Teachers’ Seminar to the 2021-22 Season (dates are TBD).

As a valued member of our PNB family, you can appreciate the impact of cancellations on PNB’s financial health. Non-profit organizations like ours have no contingency budgets in the case of civil emergencies like this one; as our resources overwhelmingly go to producing work for the stage.

On behalf of everyone at PNB – dancers, musicians, staff and faculty – we truly appreciate your investment in the ballet and in Seattle’s ever-important arts and culture community.

Teachers’ Seminar

The Teachers’ Seminar brings together dance educators from across the country for a four-day total immersion experience into the dance training, philosophies, syllabus, and dancer wellness program that makes Pacific Northwest Ballet School one of the nation’s finest professional ballet training institutions. Participants will gain an inside view of PNB School programs from Level I through Professional Division. Exchange ideas and make new connections at PNB’s Seattle studios for Company and School.
