Abigail Schmidt performs with the Pacific Dance Ensemble from a distance
While Pacific University students were scattered this spring by the spread of COVID-19, many campus events were canceled, including the popular spring concert by the Pacific Dance Ensemble. Yet the dancing went on. Pacific Director of Dance Jennifer Camp, switching to virtual instruction, asked dancers to make videos of themselves performing aspects of choreography they’d learned.

We are incredibly appreciative of the many sponsors and donors who have supported the performing arts at Pacific University over the years, as well as our patrons. We look forward to spending this year’s hiatus re-evaluating the series, so that we can return with new, exciting performances for the Forest Grove and greater Washington County community.
