PDX Dance Collective’s mission is to embody diversity and express passion through a shared vision of creating inspired and innovative art.
PDX Dance Collective values a collaborative environment that fosters creativity, personal expression, and dedication. We embrace the individual differences in people and believe that the sum of all of our unique characteristics will create a far superior result than what we could accomplish on our own. As such, we do not believe dancers need to fit into any particular mold. We support the integration of multiple dance forms from our diverse backgrounds into our productions, drawing in a broader audience while engaging them in new ways. We seek out collaborations with other artists and musicians to further enhance our work. We also strive to experiment with involvement in different types of productions and performance venues, with the goal of exposing dance to new audiences and being accessible to the local community.
Current members include Rachael Brown, Elise Ericksen, Katelyn Kollinzas, and Ismael Sonanes
