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. Splinter serves public and private schools for all age levels as well as the surrounding communities. Their goal is to create an open dialog with the audience in order to empower them to turn attitudes of apathy into enthusiasm, and ignorance into understanding. By integrating the energy and enthusiasm of the performers with the dynamics of dance, music, and drama, they strive to educate our communities about the healing principle of unity in diversity and to inspire positive social change.
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. 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.
