Ten Tiny Dances® 2021 focuses on the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, with all the performers being from BIPOC communities. Each performer has created their own dance work, using different movement forms, spoken word, singing, or some surprises you’ll just have to attend and see for yourself!

Ten Tiny Dances® was created in Portland, Oregon in 2002 and continues to be produced by founder Mike Barber and others, with permission. Please see www.tentinydances.org for more information. Since 2018, Mishele Mennett has directed Ten Tiny Dances® Corvallis, with the goal of expanding the definition of “dance,” mentoring new movement artists, challenging established dancers, all while raising money for local charitable organizations.
Dancers must create a dance to fit on top of a stage that is 4’ x 4’ and 18” tall, using the limitation to find new ways of moving. Once they start their dance, they must stay on or connected to the tiny stage with some part, (i.e., a hand, a foot, or their bottom). They can leave the tiny stage briefly.
Please consider making a donation to the Albany, Corvallis Branch of the NAACP, when you buy your ticket.
Thank you and prepare to be MOVED!
