Financial Consulting

Click to get started!

We have partnered with a financial analyst to develop dynamic tools for an organization to easily monitor their current financial reality. When real-time numbers are entered, charts indicate short-term financial status with Green, Yellow, and Red signals to indicate when the organization is in the danger zone.


Health Network Directory of Providers

Hive five - or maybe even a high kick! Check out our Health Network Directory where you will find providers who get you. Most of these providers are, or have been dancers themselves. They understand that keeping your body healthy and strong is important to your sanity and probably your livelihood. So go ahead, schedule a visit without fear that they'll give you a sideways look and say "you want to do what with your body? Why don't you take 3 months off and see if the symptoms go away." Not here! Our motto is Stay healthy. Stay dancing.

Citywide Dance Audition Portland

Citywide Dance Audition

Cancelled for 2020

Every year Dance Wire hosts the Citywide Dance Audition. Dancers learn choreography in various styles of dance then present to auditors seeking new talent or just seeing who is out there. Auditors can be independent choreographers, company directors, casting directors, talent scouts, basically anyone who may need to hire dancers. While it was scheduled to occur in May 2020, we have put it on hold until further notice.


Job Board


Phew! No more long hours at the computer searching for jobs! We post as many opportunities as we can find like - dance teaching jobs, paid gigs, admin work for dance nonprofits, studio managers, whatever we can find. Check them out here. We hope that you'll spend all your new spare time in dance class!
