Outreach } Arts Access


Northwest Dance Project is dedicated to taking dance "out of the box" and making the art form available to all members of our community. We hold a number fully accessible professional dance performances in Portland each season, often in unconventional and unexpected locations and venues. These special shows are designed to engage all audience members — from tots to seniors and from dedicated fans to those who have never before experienced contemporary dance.

These open performances have been held in the foyers of Portland Center for the Performing Arts and Portland Center Stage, at numerous area schools, on the streets of Portland (Summer Arts on Main Street, First and Last Thursdays, Mississippi and Alberta Street Fairs) our studios, local public parks (including a performance at the amphitheater of Washington Park that drew a record-breaking 4,000+ attendees), surprise downtown open spaces, and even in area department stores!

While some of these engaging shows are listed on our Performance Calendar, many are not — we love surprising people with dance and offering them the unexpected chance to experience our work and our international-award-winning company on their own terms and schedules.
