LUCIE SAETHER

Tap dancer, singer, choreographer, and songwriter based in Seattle, WA

Lucie lives to bring sparkle to people.

 

In her choreography, she strives to embody music and create the same feeling in others that the music creates in her. In her teaching, she hopes to inspire others to love tap dancing as much as she does. In her songs, she aims to amuse, delight, and articulate emotions everyone can relate to.

When she's not making music or tap dancing, she crochets stuffed animals, sends gifs to her coworkers, goes lindy hopping, and gesticulates wildly. There is a shortage of whimsy and joy in the world, and it’s her mission to do what she can to fix that.

SINGING / SONGWRITING

Lucie has been singing all her life. Her biggest songwriting inspiration is Irving Berlin, because of his ability to find beauty in simplicity. His best songs feel “true” and completely uncontrived, as if he discovered something that was already there to be found.

  • Finalist, John Lennon Songwriting Contest, 2019 Session II, Jazz Category, “It Doesn’t Have to be You”

  • Finalist, Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, 2011, solo soprano vocalist
