Experience Dance Project - Virtual Classes
In partnership with Bellevue Parks & Community Services, CHOP SHOP is offering a couple of virtual Experience Dance Program classes. CHOP SHOP was founded in 2008 on a mission to offer insight on contemporary dance and its creative process, forging deeper connections between artists and audiences through presentation, education, dialogue and experience. The festival promotes work, accessible to a diverse audience-compromising both new and experienced dance viewers and provides free, fun and open to all ages and abilities dance classes through our innovative Experience Dance Program. The flyer has registration links. (Photo credits for above: Fausto Rivera and Michele Dooley of Spectrum Dance Theater. Photo by Bret Doss.)

Inclement Weather Plan
Call 425-452-7854 before travelling to Crossroads Community Center to ensure the facility is open.
In the event of inclement weather, the Parks & Community Services Department will make every effort to communicate the status of facilities and programs, special events and rentals. Administration will decide whether to cancel a program or close a facility based upon the safety of participants and employees and the ability to appropriately staff programs and facilities.
As a general rule, if the Bellevue School District is closed due to a weather event, Parks & Community Services Department classes and programs will be cancelled for the entire day. If the Bellevue School District is on a delayed schedule, call the facility for an updated status report. Select facilities may be open for drop-in activities at a modified level. If you are unable to reach the facility, call the Parks & Community Services Department's general information number at 425-452-6885. Inclement weather can affect park use and trail conditions. Please use caution when visiting park sites during poor weather, as trails and other park facilities may become wet and slippery. Park trails may be closed.
