OBT Education and Community Engagement
OBT Education and Community Engagement would like to congratulate all of our school and community partners on another great year! Together we rose to the challenges of distance learning. From live digital residencies, to video Dance Snacks and Student Performances, to dance inspired written activities – our community partners, schools, and OBT teaching artists were able to share the power of ballet with over 30,000 students throughout the state.
The work continues . . . OBT is pleased to be part of Portland Public Schools Summer Safety and Enrichment Programming! We hope you find a free dance program that is just right for you!

Each day includes a ballet class, creative movement and improvisation, and culturally specific dance from around the world. Students will learn about many different forms of dance and celebrate the diversity of people and stories who have shaped this evolving art form. Most importantly, students will get to share their own stories through movement!
