Your Contribution at Work


$25 – We are supported by donations both large and small. Especially, now, your contribution in any amount does make a difference!

$50 – Behind every OBT activity is a team of dedicated staff. OBT staff working hard from home and in the office who are excited to share our 2021-2022 season with you!

$100 – Our dedicated students are starting to return to in-person classes across all levels. Your support helps us train the aspiring young artists of OBT School, while maintaining all of the safeguards needed as we bring our students back to the studio.

$250 – For decades, OBT has taken dance into the community and to schools throughout the state – this past year even more than before. Our teaching artists share the joy of movement and creative expression through field trips, in-school programs, performances and much more!

$500 – OBT MOVES takes our artists to unique outdoor locations throughout the region to let the public see us at work and meet our professional artists. OBT dancers will be out in the community to rehearse—in parks, in the street, in public spaces—for all to enjoy. Support us as we share the art of dance with Portland in this new way!

$1,000 – Taking what we learned the past year, OBT returns to the theater with performances in October, December, February, April and June at the Keller and the Newmark. But we will also incorporate some of the unique elements we introduced during the COVID lockdown. You can support our creativity in all of its manifestations.

$2,500 – Our dancers are the heart and soul of Oregon Ballet Theatre. We are committed to keeping them back to full involvement in their joyful pursuit of their art. Let’s show them just how much we value their incredible talent and dedication!

$5,000 – Being in the theater again opens new opportunities – new choreography, new costumes, live music, new projects. Your donations help us take giant steps in the creation of great art. Join in this reemergence of OBT and all of the arts in our region.
