Oregon Ballet Theatre

Founded in 1989 by James Canfield, a former principal dancer with the Joffrey Ballet, OBT quickly developed a distinctive style and unique repertoire that grew to comprise over 80 ballets. From 2003-2012, under the direction of Christopher Stowell, OBT added 20 world premieres to its diverse body of work. In 2013, Kevin Irving became the company’s 3rd Artistic Director and is working to develop a unique approach to 21st century American ballet that reflects the vigor of this evolving art form.
