Polaris Dance Company

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.


Thank you for your interest in Polaris Dance Theatre! Polaris company members are offered free tuition for Polaris classes, professional development training, as well as complimentary tickets for friends and family. All auditions take place at Polaris Dance Theatre unless otherwise noted. This audition will correspond with the Summer Advanced Dance Lab audition.
