2010 Dance BFA alum Ella Mahler received an Artist Trust GAP award to support her first evening-length work, Here. – a duet riddled with constant change, loads of endurance, and all aspects of togetherness. Ella’s choreography has been presented locally and nationally, with recent commissions from Relay Dance Collective, Bellingham Repertory Dance, and Seattle Art Museum. She received the SeattleDances DanceCrush Award and Velocity’s Audience Choice Award, and is selected as Velocity’s 2019 Made in Seattle Artist. Ella will premiere this new work in at Velocity Dance Center on March 7–10, 2019.
