Dance Wire PDX Portland Oregon's Dance Community

Mission & Vision


Dance Wire's mission is to enhance the prosperity and visibility of dance in Portland while inspiring more people to get involved.


It can be a lot of work to survive as a dance artist or organization. The information, resources, and services we offer help those within the professional dance community thrive. From being a resource for opportunities to facilitating collaboration & networking, to being a voice for the collective community, Dance Wire helps dancers and dance organizations prosper.


Visibility is the key to success for artists wanting to share their work. A centralized network of all dance activity in Portland raises the visibility of dance artists and organizations small and large while providing the public with a window into what’s happening.


One concept that drives every aspect of our work is that the dance offers something for everyone. You don't have to be pursuing dance as a career to get involved. Dance Wire is here to get everyone to the next level of their dance journey as an artist, student or audience member. There is no such thing as too old, too fat, too poor, too shy, too inflexible or too uncoordinated to enjoy dance. Discover what's out there and we promise you'll be inspired.
