How can I go to Research?

At Research we prioritize safer spaces on our dance floors. To make sure that folks are on board with that mission, there is a simple process to become a community member. Once you are a community member, you can buy tickets for Research. Membership is free. Here's how this works...

Step 1: Complete a Membership Request

This should only take a few minutes. After this is done, give us a few days before we get back to you via email. If we don't have any announced events on the horizon, this will take longer.

Step 2: Create An Account

Keep your eye on an email from us letting you know that you are now a member. This email will contain a link to create an account. Once you’re logged in, you'll be able to buy tickets. You only need to create an account once. When you create your account, make sure to use the email that you used when completing your membership application.

If you’re already a Research member, just login to your account.

Step 3: Buy Tickets

📧 Having issues? Contact us at if you have problems with access or other questions.

Why do I need to fill out a request to buy tickets?

Research is a semi-private community of like-minded dancers. This is part our effort to create a comfortable, safe environment. It's rare that someone doesn't comply with our safer space policy and we have to bounce/ban someone. If it does happen, this system helps ensure that they're not allowed into future events. In addition, this approach helps to ensure that those who attend are fully aligned with our mission.

Can I tell my friends about Research?

If you can vouch for them, of course! If you bring a guest that doesn't abide by our safer space policy, you may be banned as well.

Each account can only purchase two tickets per event.

How much are tickets?

"The most affluent 20% of Seattle households — roughly 69,000 of the city’s 344,600 households — had an average income of $345,000 in 2020. The least affluent 69,000 households averaged about $18,800 — an extremely small amount in a city with one of the highest costs of living."
- The Seattle Times

Although our events often operate on thin margins, we believe that no should be turned away for a lack of funds. At our events, we offer a tiered ticketing system with prices that typically range from $25 to $40. If you're down with the cause and have the financial means, leave a tip at checkout.

Is the price out of your budget?

Send us an email with your full name, whether you need 1 or 2 tickets, and how much you'd be able to pay.

Ticket Exchanges

While we can't guarantee refunds, if you are no longer able to make it you may transfer your ticket to another approved Research member. If you are transferring, please email us by 8 PM the day of Research.

If you don't know anyone you can transfer your ticket to, send us an email at and we will try to resell your ticket.
