About Doug Silton

Hi world!

Welcome to my Patreon page!

I'm Doug Silton - artist and athlete. You might know me as a professional dancer / instructor / choreographer / judge on the West Coast Swing or Lindy Hop dance circuits. Maybe you've seen the conceptual dance videos I've produced over the past two decades. You might follow my global travels, share in my trekking, ultra, and high altitude adventures, check out my photography or watch my Vlogs. You are probably watching my channels only for glimpses of my puppy Lizzy (AKA #LittleLove) - and who are we kidding - I'm assuming that's most of you. ;)

As the pandemic has paused the in-person dance industry which was my love and passion for the past 20 years, I'm spending more time delving deeper into my conceptual video art. And my  photography.  I'm currently planning an open-ended motorbike trip starting in Saigon, Vietnam in 2021 to explore and live in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand. All the while I'll be still creating dance and video art, collaborating with other artists (from a distance or in person when it's safe), capturing energy and life in my photographs, and sharing my adventures with everyone in the world who cares to join me on my travels.

My new Vlog, "A Doug's Life" is starting with my journeys from the past four years. My wife passed away in 2017 and I left the country to travel and find myself. Then I lost my house and all of my personal possessions in a fire just over 2 years ago. So I packed a bag and ... just ... went. I leapt into adventures from Vietnam to Nepal to climbing Kilimanjaro ... and I would alternate non-dance adventures with lots of dancing. I flew to Hamburg to dance at a convention and then drove across Croatia and Bosnia-Herzogovenia and Macedonia for ten days before judging a weekend competition in London.

I've been on the go, telling stories through my favorite mediums: dance, photography, vlogging.

I've so enjoyed sharing glimpses with the world; now it's time to share all of it with you.

You support is very important to me - not only because it will allow me to continue doing what I love in the capacity that pandemic has allowed me to, but your patronage here will get you extra content, sneak previews of the conceptual videos that are constantly in post-production for hundreds of hours. Top-tier patrons will receive thanks in the credits of my upcoming videos.

I hope my journey has helped others and continues to do so.

Be strong. Please stay safe out there.
