WHO WE ARE & what we do
KATY HAGELIN dance project is a 501©3 nonprofit company producing contemporary ballet and modern dance works in the greater Seattle area and beyond. Our mission is to enrich people's lives by speaking hope through the language of dance. We speak to various communities through stage performance, outdoor and arts festivals, gallery shows as well as outreach performances.
KHDP was founded by Artistic Director Katy Hagelin in October 2008. Hagelin has a passion for choreography and telling stories and raising awareness of ideas of hope for humans everywhere. KHDP has partnered with many artists over the years and produced shows that feature other choreographers as well who have a similar vision. Here at KHDP we believe in sharing epic dances with both dancers, artists and also audience members. We desire that any person would be able to see and understand choreographic works while also enjoying classic and contemporary professional art.
