Remembering Miss Kitty Seale

The ripple effect of influence of a life and career such as Miss Kitty Seale's is impossible to overstate. The Alabama Dance Council extends our thoughts and condolences to all of those who are missing Miss Kitty today.  Ms. Seale and Alabama Dance Theatre are founding members of the Alabama Dance Summit, which later evolved into our Alabama Dance Festival.  We are forever grateful for the tremendous influence of Miss Kitty Seale on our dance community.
