Conduit Dance, 918 SW Yamhill, Suite 401, Portland, OR. Exploring contact as a solo form, we’ll introduce a dazzling array of personal scores and skills to broaden your pallet of choices. Skills to find ease and efficiency with weight sharing and flight. Personal scores explore freedom to pursue your interests and curiosities throughout the dance while balancing connection to your partner.
