Celebrating White Bird's 20th Anniversary

April 25, 2018

Last night, Commissioner Fish and Commissioner Eudaly joined local dance company White Bird at a celebration of their 20th Anniversary.

They had the honor of presenting White Bird’s founders, Walter Jaffe and Paul King, with a proclamation recognizing their outstanding contributions to the Portland arts community.

White Bird is the only arts organization in the west that solely produces dance performances. In the last 20 years, White Bird has presented over 600 dance performances featuring artists from across the globe. In addition, White Bird has a strong partnership with Portland Public Schools to showcase professional dance to students.

White Bird is a treasure in our city’s vibrant arts community. Congratulations to Paul and Walter for 20 years of excellence.
