White Bird is committed to bringing the best Portland-based, regional, national and international dance companies to Portland. White Bird strongly believes in making dance exciting, educational and accessible to everyone, young and old, of all social backgrounds.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our goal to make dance exciting, educational and accessible was best realized in the past year through our annual outreach project with Portland Public Schools and dance workshops in various Portland locations. We reached 2,900 young people (ages 12-18), most of whom had never been exposed to a live dance performance (or any live performance).

“What really impressed us was your No Empty Seats Today, or NEST, program, offering prime seats to many health and human service organizations in Portland. It is this kind of thoughtfulness and generosity that makes White Bird a caring community and yours is so special. There is no organization like White Bird.” —Pilobolus Dance Theatre
