"I moved to Portland with no job, no connections, and no specific plan. I knew I wanted to become immersed in the dance community. I found Dance Wire one day before I moved and have since used it to find classes, meet other dancers, know when applications for performing and creating were open, and see performances. Shortly after moving, Dance Wire hosted a Buzz Builder networking event, where I met so many dancers. Through the connections I made, I ended up getting a job at White Bird, setting a new work for a show just two months after I arrived, and finding a group of friends to dance with. Dance Wire provided me with the tools to find my place here in Portland as an artist. I've been here for just over three months now and I already feel as though I'm a part of the community. I am so grateful!"

Elizabeth Whelan, movement-based artist, choreographer, teacher, and writer
