A Celebration of Women in Dance

White Bird is flying into its 21st season, having kicked off with Pilobolus’ incredible Come to Your Senses program that drew the White Bird community in with strength, finesse and eloquent grace. Not only was Pilobolus the launch of our season, but it was the beginning of a year dedicated to celebrating and supporting women in dance. After our 20th season, which focused on presenting diverse companies led by people of color, we decided to continue in the spirit of uplifting audiences with movement by presenting companies with strong women at their helm.

This season, we are proud to celebrate: 

Renee Jaworski, Co-Artistic Director of Pilobolus

Lucy Guerin, Founder and Artistic Director of Lucy Guerin

Natalia Hills, Choreographer, Tangueros Del Sur

Wang Yuanyuan, Founder Artistic Director of Beijing Dance Theater

Marie Chouinard, Founder and Artistic Director of Compagnie Marie Chouinard

Joan Myers Brown, Founder and Artistic Director of Philadanco

Rebels on Pointe: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

We are counting down the days until our favorite men in tutus return to Portland (February 13th for one night only at the Schnitzer)! If you haven’t seen this legendary all male-comedic ballet company, there’s still time to get your tickets. And, while you’re at it, catch their documentary “Rebels on Pointe” on the Starz network or rent for $0.99 on Amazon! The film juxtaposes intimate behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, engaging character driven stories and dance performances.
