We are pleased to announce the return of National Dance Week, Oregon's only citywide dance celebration. All ages are invited to participate by enjoying free performances, by learning new moves in a dance workshop or by offering a dance class to the community. With a mix of in-person and online content covering a wide range of dance styles, we have something to satisfy all interests and abilities.
History: National Dance Week was formed in 1981 when a group of dance-related organizations began a strong grassroots movement to bring greater recognition to dance in the United States. Celebrations now occur throughout the nation. We believe in the transformative power of dance and its role as an artistic expression to bring us together for moments of unity and provide opportunities to share and honor each other.
