As Steven mentioned yesterday, the staff and dancers are taking to the streets today to thank the Portland community for stepping up and supporting OBT in overwhelming numbers. We are so grateful!

At noon, we'll be at Pioneer Square to show our gratitude for the community and our support of the arts in Portland. Meet us there!

If you can't make this afternoon's rally, meet us at NW Glisan & 13th at 6:30pm for "Random Acts of Dance" as our beautiful dancers take to the streets with some creative and daring improv.

We'll end at Forkfly HQ on NW 6th between Everett and Flanders for more improv and performances by Gavin Larsen & Adrian Fry and Anne Mueller & Steven Houser. The dancing is slated for 8pm, so don't be late! This event is a benefit for OBT, we hope you'll join us and show your support!

Thank you Portland, for loving OBT as much as you do!

    We should be thanking you not only for a finely accomplished ballet company but for the concept and drive you showed to get the benefit up and running in just two weeks. WOW! What a show.

    I had planned on coming to the party at FORKFLY last night until about noon when we had several heavy incidents. From there I knew the party was out of the question this time.

    I do hope you have more parties of various sorts that could be open to your caring public. That kind of activity reminds me of the early days (late 40’s) of the Chicago Ballet Guild of which I was a founding member. We had many parties for fundraisers, fun and education. Something along those lines would be a blessing to Portland – ballet and public alike.

    Again many thanks for your attention to the broader details and exposition of the Arts and our mutual ballet love.
