Our Mission Statement
The Portland Bellydance Guild is a membership organization with a mission to increase public awareness and appreciation for dance and music rooted in, or inspired by, the Middle-Eastern diaspora. We are committed to inclusively cultivating the collective talents of Portland Metro area performers, artisans, musicians, photographers, teachers, students, producers, and enthusiasts.
We aim to ensure the presence of bellydance as a vital and growing art form in the Portland-area arts scene through community and audience education, community celebrations, engaging in high arts media and audience outreach, and by encouraging and supporting artistically excellent productions in the Portland area and beyond.
Please, join us at a meeting or hafla or pop us an email to learn more about our mission, members, and how we can work together to support eachother and our greater-Portland-area community.
