We have a working board where everyone collaborates as committee members, event helpers, financial advisors, and more. Our board members’ main function is to guide Whim W’Him to realize opportunities that help us fulfill our mission, serve our community, and live into our values.

Whim W’Him is seeking people who have experience in and are committed to:

  • Community Building
  • Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • Creativity and resiliency
  • Honoring individual gifts of time, talents, and resources
  • Fiscal responsibility

Board members are expected to attend monthly board meetings (2 +/- hours each) on alternating 1st Tuesday and Wednesday of each month. Members may attend in person or virtually. Board members are also expected to attend Whim W’Him performances and events; chair or participate in a committee (committees usually meet for an hour or more each month); assist with identifying new board members; and champion Whim W’Him in the community.
No minimum financial contribution is required.

See a list of Board members.


Applications are closed and will re-open spring ’24.

Whim W’Him dancers, under the artistic direction of Olivier Wevers, seek choreographers to create new dance works for the company’s “Choreographic Shindig”. Selected choreographers will be invited to Seattle to create an original dance with the Whim W’Him professional dancers. Choreographers share 2-3 week residencies, which culminate in 8 public performances of a professional split-bill in Seattle.
