Dear Valued NWDT Patrons,

First, I want to wish you all well and thank you for your support of Northwest Dance Theatre.

2020 has been a year of unprecedented changes and uncertainty. What is certain is our commitment to you, our dancers, and to the performing arts community. It is with deep regret that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to perform our 2020 Nutcracker Tea this year. Your health and safety and that of our dancers is always our first concern. In addition, the Performing Arts Center at Portland Community College has notified us that it will not be re-opening in time for our Nutcracker Tea season. We have explored similar venues only to discover that they, too, are unavailable.

Our hearts are saddened for you, for our artistic directors, and for our dancers who have always dedicated so much time and talent to this production. We miss you all, and hope that we will see you in April 2021, for our Spring Performance, and in December 2021 for the return of A Nutcracker Tea.

President, NWDT Board of Directors
