Polaris Dance Theatre’s annual outdoor summer dance festival returns for its fourth year, and we can’t wait for you to participate in this year’s free events! In 2016, over 1,500 people attended this much-anticipated event. Join us August 4 – 6, 2016 at Simon & Helen Director Park in downtown Portland as we host an array of Portland-area dance companies in this 3-day community gathering, including free classes and performances for the whole family!

Dance brings people together, and our goal is to get our community involved through accessible, affordable (free!), and thoughtful avenues of exploration. This year we’ll be hosting 13 companies, featuring an eclectic mix of styles and techniques! The wide array of genres, including aerial, ballet, hip hop, ballroom, belly dancing, contemporary, modern, folk, and jazz, contributes to the festive atmosphere, while offering an engaging opportunity for all. Dance lovers of all genres will be entertained!
