Now celebrating its eighth year, CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work is the only annual contemporary dance festival held specifically for the Eastside. Recognized as one of the most important dance events of the year, this Festival serves up a unique sampling of contemporary dance from leading national and international award-winning dance makers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The Festival features master classes and lectures by the Artistic Directors and Choreographers from the Festival as well as FREE Community Outreach programs (the 'Experience Dance Program' in partnership with The City of Bellevue) geared to enhance the viewer's insight and experience. CHOP SHOP Contemporary Dance Festival is dedicated to bringing great dance work to both new and seasoned audiences through experience, education and performance. Though drawn from diverse backgrounds and possessing strong individual voices, each company presented is united through the contemporary language of dance and its power to stir the senses through the visceral moving image.
