BKirk Dance is a newly established company in Seattle, WA, with fiscal sponsorship through Shunpike. Their work is dual-focused in contemporary/modern dance performance and dance education, prioritizing finding opportunities for arts integration in local schools.

Artistic Director, Bridget Kirk, approaches choreography through the terms of her experience as an educator, specifically through the goal of offering accessibility. This means movement accessibility for performers in allowing their bodies to move in ways that are safe for them, but also accessibility to audiences of creating an inviting, personal space for new viewers to feel welcome without a sense of intimidation that dance can sometimes be fraught with for the non-dancer.

Two questions driving Kirk's choreographic process and the work of BKirk Dance lately are, "How does the audience's choice-making alter their perspective of the work?" and, "How can we decrease the intimidation factor of viewing dance and bring in new audiences?"
