Become a sponsor of our programs, performances, and dance in Portland. Your support with push/FOLD ripples far beyond the stage and goes directly into the community:
push/FOLD productions are all produced by Artistic Director and Composer-Choreographer, Samuel Hobbs. For all events we host, we rent local venues, and contract local dancers, photographers, videographers, costume designers, and technical professionals.
A major portion of our funding goes directly to the performing artists and dancers we work with. Dancers receive competitive performance stipends, tour stipends and per diem, rehearsal pay, and compensation for their non-performance work during a production. Dancers also have sponsored access to free manual therapy each month by Movement Bodywork® and Be Well Holistic Health.
Union PDX provides professional artists with career development training and workshops, masterclasses, tangible professional resources and documentation of their work, and networking and performance opportunities at prominent venues.
push/FOLD provides workshops, masterclasses, and presentations to communities, organizations, training programs, and professional artists and teachers; providing much needed information and understanding for healthful movement practices from student to professional.
push/FOLD travels locally, nationally, and internationally to perform at festivals, conferences and community events. push/FOLD pays all artists and professionals involved in each.
Samuel Hobbs of push/FOLD mentors professional and young artists in choreography, project development, leadership, and grant writing. All mentorships, guidance, and support are free for the participating artists.
The success of push/FOLD's programming is credit to the in‑kind support we receive from our community partners, sponsors, volunteers, and our administrative and artistic staff. We welcome in-kind sponsorships and partnerships in many areas of our organization.
