We are a local non-profit organization with the mission of providing dancers and other performers of all ages opportunities to collaborate and bring exciting original, classical and contemporary works to live audiences in Kitsap County. As a local performing arts company focused on the art of dance, we also view ourselves as champions for youth. Now in our eleventh year, we can recount numerous ways in which young people who participate in our programs develop skills for success in life: confidence, self-awareness, resilience, teamwork and the benefits of a good work ethic to name a few. While our goals are dance performance and education, we know the benefits to participation in our programs are for more expansive.
With auditions open to the entire community and across many genres of performance — such as dance (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern and ballroom), singing, gymnastics and acting—we strive to broaden the accessibility of dance performance and learning opportunities. Company members not only enhance their performing arts education, but also have opportunities to mentor younger participants, teach, direct, provide community service as well as train with professional guest artists. Our thriving local arts community is enriched and more complete through Olympic Performance Group’s contributions.
