Our Mission

The Living Room is a cultural nexus for dancers and non-dancers looking to expand their physical range, deepen their body awareness, and investigate movement as a way to experience the world. We offer training for all ages in composition, improvisation, experimental movement, anatomical research, and performance strategy. We seek to elevate the place of dance within the contemporary arts community of Greater Portland by cultivating interdisciplinary collaborations and curating cutting edge performances by local and visiting artists. As a collective of artists, we are invested in socially conscious practices that avoid cultural appropriation, encourage self-care, and strengthen the field of dance.
