Dance With Polaris!
Launched in 2002 by award-winning choreographer Robert Guitron, Portland-based Polaris Dance Theatre is a professional dance organization that creates and produces works of dance for the local, national and international stage. Our productions are visually innovative, athletic, intelligent, emotional and thought-provoking. Dancers must be versatile with a strong background in both contemporary as well as classical styles. Partnering skills are required. Some aerial experience is preferred. Our season consists of three fully-staged evening productions, as well as festival performances, special events and possible touring.
