Seattle Academy’s Dance Faculty Anita Kuroiwa-Schiff and Alicia Mullikin were both honored on January 18 with SeattleDances "Dance Crush" Awards for their achievements in local dance. Each year the local dance publication SeattleDances highlights their favorite artists currently in the industry. "Dance Crush" Awards are given to stand-out artists, and this year's awardees were honored in an evening performance and gala ceremony at Seattle Central’s Erickson Theater.

This year, Anita Kuroiwa-Schiff, received the "Foundational Educator Award"  for her contributions to Seattle dance education. Anita has been a teacher at SAAS since 1998, where she founded our Middle and Upper School dance companies. 

Alicia Mullikin received a "Dynamic Performance Award" for choreographing LA TERCERA REINA, a piece she created in honor of her 98-year-old grandmother.

Congratulations to Anita and Alicia!
