We look at the dance to impart a sensation of living in an affirmation of life.
Performing Arts Center Eastside (PACE) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was established in 2002 for the purpose of building a first-class performing arts center in Bellevue to serve the growing population of the Eastside. PACE continues today as the parent organization of Tateuchi Center, so-named on June 8, 2010 to honor a $25 million gift from the Atsuhiko and Ina Goodwin Tateuchi Foundation.
The Board of Directors of PACE is legally responsible for the fiscal stability of Tateuchi Center, and for the wise stewardship of its resources and the ongoing achievement of its goals. The Board represents the interests of the larger community in the exercise of its governance responsibilities, and of Tateuchi Center, as ambassadors to the community. Our Directors are highly accomplished civic and business leaders with a passion for improving the quality of life on the Eastside. They share a vision of the future in which Tateuchi Center will continuously enhance the quality of life in our region, using the transcendent power of the Arts to open hearts, engage minds, and create understanding and appreciation among the diverse communities it will serve.
