FLOOR Center for Dance aims to create more performance opportunities for emerging artists in the Portland dance community. Showcasing developing dance and movement-based works in a shared evening in-studio, FLOOR provides the opportunity for young artists to present a current, finished or unfinished work to a live audience at a low cost to the community.

We welcome dancers ages 7-20 to submit solo or group choreography of any style to FLOOR by December 20th, 2019.

*Selected choreographers will be featured online and will receive video footage and photography from the event.
