Community Workshops

"We didn't just stop in Portland to perform our show. We became a part of the community." 

—  Matt Kent and Renee Jaworski

 Artistic Directors, Pilobolus

White Bird is proud to have offered community workshops and professional masterclasses with nearly every company we have brought to Portland.  Part of our mission is to continue fostering the growth of the local dance scene in Portland through workshops and masterclasses around town.


Workshops for our 2023/24 season will be posted as they are confirmed.

To be the first to hear about upcoming workshops and community engagement events, follow White Bird on Instagram and Facebook. 

"...Not only did they see this incredible company [Dallas Black Dance Theatre] perform, but they got to meet them, ask them questions and engage in a way that I know they will keep in their memories for the rest of their lives."


—  Monica Parra
