Noelani Pantastico and James Yoichi Moore, celebrated principal dancers with Pacific Northwest Ballet, announced the formation last month of the Seattle Dance Collective (SDC).
SDC aims to create unique opportunities for collaboration between dancers and choreographers, and to contribute engaging, thought-provoking programs to audiences in Seattle and beyond.
Pantastico is from Oahu. She trained at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet.
Originally from San Francisco, Moore started training at San Francisco Ballet School through its Dance in Schools program.
