Mission & History


Studio Shaun Keylock is an independent platform for contemporary dance and performance dedicated to new movement research and cross-disciplinary collaboration. 

Founded by choreographer Shaun Keylock as a framework for his company of dancers and his ongoing interest in fields both beyond and in dialogue with dance, the studio creates unique works of contemporary performance that are at once both technically sound and radically subversive, often exploring the many facets of LGBT and queer identity. 

Studio Shaun Keylock connects audiences to contemporary dance and performance through various productions, public programs, workshops, and exhibitions. In addition, our studio also provides direct support to both emerging and established artists by providing a collaborative platform for ongoing movement research and performance studies, further enriching the arts ecosystem of the Pacific Northwest.
