SEATTLE -- The 4th annual Arts Crush celebration is officially underway, with hundreds of events and performances available for audiences.

"Arts Crush gives people a chance to connect with theater and performing arts in a way they've never been able to," said Director Andy Jensen.

The month-long celebration offers free and "pay as you will" events to audiences throughout the greater Seattle area.

The performances and events range from Indian Dance to the Roots of Hip Hop. Kathy Hsieh of SIS Productions also gives a walking Bruce Lee tour in the International District.

"We walk the streets of the International District and visit different areas that Lee also frequented," said Hsieh.

Along the walking tour you will literally run into "Bruce Lee," or at least a young actor protraying him.

"We have actors all along the route, some will perform martial arts and even dance moves," said Hsieh. "A lot of people don't know Lee was a Cha Cha dancing champion."

Theater Puget Sound sponsors the event. Its goal is to connect the public to the huge arts community that is available at their fingertips.
