Who We Are

Formed in 2006, the Sister Kate Dance Company (SKDC) is a nationally-recognized dance troupe, dedicated to celebrating and continuing the legacy of jazz-era chorus girl dancing.

Celebrating 16 years in 2022, SKDC has choreographed hundreds of routines, directed and presented nine full-length cabaret shows, inspired three spin-off companies, and has appeared in countless performances around Puget Sound and beyond. SKDC specializes in vintage chorus girl jazz dances from the 1920s-1950s, with inspiration ranging from CanCan dancers to flappers to Broadway musicals.

Above all, Sister Kate’s members seek to spread their passion for vintage jazz movement and empower more individuals to get up and dance!
