Whidbey Island Dance Theatre
Whidbey Island Dance Theatre was founded in 1993 to promote dance as a significant cultural resource for Whidbey Island and the surrounding communities, and to provide pre-professional experience for outstanding young dancers. WIDT presents a broad range of dance genres including ballet, modern dance, jazz dance, tap and ballroom. Strict standards of training and choreography provide dancers with opportunities for personal and artistic growth. WIDT was a member of Regional Dance America from 2001-2012.
WIDT presents two major productions each year. Our largest production, The Nutcracker, has enjoyed 18 highly successful seasons. In spring, our Dance & Choreography Showcase highlights the diverse talents of our broadly trained dancers and features the works of both resident and guest choreographers. Guest choreographers in recent years include Eva Stone, Aaron Cash, Danielle Wilkins, Laurentia Barbu, Andrea Binder, Leigh-Ann Cohen Hafford, Jenna Kantor, and Daniel Wilkins of DASS Dance. In 2004, Sharon Tyers, formerly of the Martha Graham Dance Company, set the first modern dance master work on WIDT: Martha Graham’s Appalachian Spring.
Since 2000, WIDT has performed in Tucson, Salt Lake City, greater Los Angeles, and at the National Dance Festival in Pittsburgh, PA as well as a dozen cities in Washington.
