Splinter Dance Company, under the umbrella of ajusticenetwork and the fiscal sponsorship of Shunpike, is composed of a diverse group of professional dancers from Seattle who have come together to enhance community awareness of critical social issues. Splinter uses dance and movement-theater in their educational work (including, but not limited to, the Diversity Dance repertoire), confronting the issues of racism, sexism, violence, the needs of the poor and the importance of unity in diversity.
In addition to performing the Diversity Dance repertoire for schools and community events, Splinter can also be hired to create theme-specific performances for corporate clients and private events. Splinter’s repertoire ranges in styles from hip‐hop and breakdance, to lyrical, salsa, contemporary and jazz and even Bollywood. Splinter mentors local high school youth and works directly w/ satellite groups around the state offering workshop programs to groups interested in developing theater, dance, choreography, and performance skills.
