Polaris Dance Theatre is a contemporary dance company founded in 2002 under the direction of award-winning Artistic Director Robert Guitron that stages performances, outreach programs, classes and artist collaborations. Since then, Polaris has produced nearly 300 innovative and thought-provoking works. In 2009, we opened the Polaris Contemporary Dance Center in downtown Portland, which welcomes students from any background and movement ability, from pre-professional dancers to dancers in wheelchairs. The Polaris’s season consists of three fully-staged productions incorporating innovative new work, showcasing dancers and choreographers from right here in Portland and providing opportunities for dancers of mixed abilities to perform in. The company features the finest dancers from across the United States and the artistic caliber of their work has received local, national and international attention.
