Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring a White Bird presentation is making a personal investment in the world of contemporary dance and the vibrant Portland dance community. It also is an investment in Arts and Culture for our beloved city – Portland. White Bird works closely with our sponsors to provide the best experience and most value for their investment as possible. You can see your impact on stage, in the lobbies of the theaters before and after performances, and all over town in shop and restaurant windows where our captivating posters are distributed by a dedicated team of volunteers.

As a corporate or individual partner of White Bird, your employees, friends, family, customers, and brand will be directly participating in bringing the best dance in the world to Portland. We work to craft the most rewarding experience and our sponsorships can be customized to your specific needs.
