Seattle: Not All Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs!

Graeme Thomas from our UK office in Edinburgh, Scotland just came out to Seattle for a visit to the home office and a few comedy spots around town. He was kind enough to share his experiences with us in blog form. So, without further ado, Graeme Thomas everyone:

I’d been asked (forced against my will really) to come to the States for some training in our Seattle office (I know what could I do, it’s all work work work).

My band has performed with them quite often and they constantly blow me away with their aggressive, high-energy, ultra-sexy dance moves. Always heavy on quirk and humor, they manage to trick audiences into watching modern dance by disguising it as a burlesque show. Read the rest of this entry »
