One of Oregon’s beloved art institutions is in danger of closing.The Oregon Ballet Theatre is experiencing a budget shortfall and has put together a fantastic evening of dance to help reduce a sizable shortfall in their operating budget.
On June 12, the Oregon Ballet Theatre will present DANCE UNITED. Artists from companies across North America such as the New York City Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet and the Joffrey will join members of the local dance community to perform in support of OBT. Please help to keep professional ballet in Oregon!

Rhiannon is a native Oregonian who grew up exploring the nooks and crannies of the Oregon Coast and daydreaming in Powell’s City of Books. She now lives in NE Portland with her husband and her new baby boy and looks forward to teaching him to love Oregon as much as she does. Rhiannon attended both the University of Oregon and Portland State University, where she studied Journalism and Mass Media. She claims to ‘bleed green’ and happily cheers for both the Ducks and the Vikings every chance she gets. In her free time, Rhiannon enjoys sipping Oregon Pinot, finding new restaurants, bargain hunting and trying new recipes – sometimes successfully. She has a child-like enthusiasm for trying new things and rediscovering old ones – such as skee-ball, mini golf, and big slides.
