Kutt N Up
Kutt’N’ Up is an dance family that includes youth from all over the greater Seattle area. Kutt ‘N’ Up’s mission is to succeed in all aspects of life including performance, grades, responsibility and accountability. “I Can’t” is not part of our vocabulary because the sky is our limit.
Kutt ‘N’ Up Entertainment was founded in 2005 in Seattle by Tyrone Crosby and Dwayne Jackson. What started as one competition became a ongoing dance entertainment company. In 2006, Kutt ‘N’ Up extended the dance program from an after-school club to a year round program. Holding seasonal auditions for hundreds of youth in the northwest, Kutt ‘N’ Up Entertainment performs community stories through music and dance.
Red Eagle Soaring
Red Eagle Soaring (RES) is a non-profit Native Youth Theatre that offers Seattle urban Native youth ages 11-19 contemporary theatre integrated with the traditional performing arts that define Native culture – drumming, singing, and storytelling. Red Eagle Soaring holds their after school rehearsals and productions at RVCC.
Since its formation RES has staged 130 student productions, mentored hundreds of youth, and grown into a full annual cycle of programming consisting of a touring Spring Play (traveling to tribal settings, schools, and conferences throughout the Northwest, as well as Seattle’s Folklife Festival), a 2-week summer performing arts intensive held at Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center (culminating in a free public performance), and a series of after-school drama classes in the fall.
