Review: Velocity Dance Center Presents Made in Seattle: KT Niehoff (March 10, 2017)

Upon entering the room, it’s immediately clear this isn’t your standard dance floor. The seats are scattered haphazardly around the room. Each one is on a small square platform that is bolted to the ground in a way that allows spinning in place. Also, there are about 10 large balloons floating around. They don’t fly to the ceiling or fall to the ground. They just float in midair. Just like the Clintons at the Democratic National Convention, everyone is fascinated by the balloons and they happily hit them around the room.

Towards the end of the show, the oldest dancer sits on one of the small stages and is interviewed. He says at his age (early 60s), his body is dying. He can feel it as he dances in his bones and joints. This is then followed by him doing a solo dance. He’s still a solid dancer at his age.

At four different times during the performance, VR goggles are passed around the audience. There is about one for every five people. A portion of what is happening outside the goggles is missed while wearing the goggles. However, the dancing is repetitive, so this isn’t an issue.
