About Us

Sparrow Dance Company is a non-profit modern dance company specializing in performance, educational outreach and community support. They hold a vision to dance across boundaries of age, culture and ideologies. Located in the heart of downtown Astoria, they travel along the Pacific Northwest coast spreading dance and the arts to rural communities. The Company is rooted in modern dance and creates original choreographic works and full length dance concerts. Incorporation of cultural dance into the companies repertoire is a priority and Sparrow collaborates with guest artists from all across the United States. This training gives them the opportunity to accurately represent cultural dance from across the globe. Annually, they hold Dancers Unite, a benefit dancer concert raising funds for a selected local organization. Additionally, you can find them teaching children's workshops at libraries, preschools and public parks! Since the start of the pandemic Sparrow Dance Company has become known for their free outdoor street shows. They have also been creating dance films in collaboration with The Liberty Theatre and KMUN for virtual entertainment programming. Sparrow Dance Company is composed of highly trained dancers and includes a Community Company with children and other adults who simply like to move and enjoy the artistic process. The Company also teaches intermediate and advanced dance classes to the public at Astoria Arts and Movement Center. More information at sparrowdancecoestoria.org
