About the Instructor:
Viktor Usov is a classically trained dancer and teacher with the NW Dance Project. Born in Ukraine, he moved to Portland and began his dance training at the age of 14 under the direction of Sarah Slipper. He continued to graduate from Juilliard with a BFA in dance. Following his time in New York, Viktor moved to Germany to dance as a soloist at the Staatstheatre Kassel opera house under director Johannes Wieland.

Since his return to Portland, Viktor has begun to teach his own style of movement exploration and improvisation. The Movement Center has been an integral part of Viktor's life since the age of 9. It has helped shape and inform who he is as an artist and movement teacher. His dance is deeply influenced by his spiritual practice and is an endless source of inspiration.
