On Friday, October 11 three PNB Company dancers spent several hours on board a Washington State Ferry. Why, you ask? They were shooting a promotional video for Visit Seattle, a marketing campaign aimed at promoting tourism to our fair city. The TV spot features these gifted classical artists against the stunning natural landscape of the Puget Sound.

The dancers got to visit the crew in the ferryboat wheelhouse before shooting on the vessel’s deck.
The women were pros, enduring Seattle’s cool, misty, fall weather throughout the shoot while the crew stayed bundled up in parkas.
We love how perfectly this video concept showcases the rugged beauty of the region alongside PNB’s artists. Tell all your friends to Visit Seattle and come see PNB!
