Timothy Lynch, artistic director of and dancer with Seattle Dance Project, will leave the company in June. He has accepted a job as academy director for BalletMet in Ohio, where choreographer Edwaard Liang recently became artistic director. Liang’s works have been prominently featured in SDP’s repertoire.

Alexandra Dickson, Lynch’s wife, who’s also an SDP dancer, will be going to BalletMet as well, where she’ll teach company classes and serve as children’s ballet mistress.

Both Lynch and Dickson are former Pacific Northwest Ballet dancers. Together with Julie Tobiason, another PNB veteran, Lynch co-founded SDP in 2007. For the past three years, he’s been sole artistic director, following Tobiason’s departure in 2011.

SDP’s “Project 7,” featuring new works by Seattle choreographers Wade Madsen, Amy O’Neal and Iyun Harrison, will be the troupe’s final production under Lynch’s direction. It happens 7 p.m. April 30 (pay-what-you-will dress rehearsal), 8 p.m. May 2 and 3, and 5 p.m. May 4, Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway, Seattle; $20-$25 (1-800-838-3006 or www.brownpapertickets.com/event/638059).

There is no word yet as to the future of SDP.
