    COVID-19 Info

    Update 6/1/2020, 5:00pm:

    June 2020:
    Abbey Arts venues are adhering to all Public Health guidelines and are not currently open.
    See Classes Calendar for updates when small classes may reopen.

    Because streaming music services are considered an essential service as described in Governor Inslee’s Safe Start, we are pleased to allow certain space usage for rehearsals and programs to create live and/or pre-recorded material for streaming, with all standard distancing and Public Health guidelines practiced at all times.

    We believe music, art and connection are as necessary as ever in this moment. This is why, in compliance with State and CDC guidelines, artists can perform their work safely in our space to connect with their fans in a time when we can really use the mental and emotional health benefits that art and music provide.

    Thank you for continuing to support artists and each other in this difficult time.

    RESCHEDULING

    **RESCHEDULING**

    HATCH III is uniquely designed to be an intimate and interactive dance event uniting the community. Due to our artists being unable to fully participate, and a decision made with the well-being of our choreographers, dancers, and audience in-mind – our March 13th show will be postponed to a later date when all involved can take-part in the experience fully.

    All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date. We know this isn’t a fun time – but hold onto your tickets and we’ll be announcing the new date soon.

    We look forward to seeing you all in the near future!

    From Caitlin:
     
    “I’m sorry to announce that we’re having to postpone my upcoming show at Ballard Homestead on 3/28. The good news is I’m 6 months pregnant. The bad news is I was just given doctor’s orders to not fly from now until the end of my pregnancy, which makes it impossible for me to play these west coast shows.I hate to cancel any show, but I need to follow my doctor’s orders. I will reschedule, but do not have a confirmed date to share yet. I am so sorry for the inconvenience this causes you, and I appreciate your understanding”
     
    All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date. We know this isn’t a fun time – but hold onto your tickets and we’ll be announcing the new date soon.
     
    We look forward to seeing you all in the near future!
