VMAC Needs You

Vitalidad Movement Arts and Events Center affectionately known as VMAC has been an integral part of the Portland multicultural movement arts landscape for over 5 years.  From it's humble beginnings it has grown into a home and refuge for thousands of Portland residents including the underrepresented.   Apart from offering classes in cultural dances and movement arts VMAC has also been host to many gatherings including non-profit fundraiser events.

As a business who's sole purpose is to bring communities together you can imagine the toll that the Covid-19 crisis has taken on VMAC as it has forced us to close our doors to the many that depend on us for their health, social and mental wellness.

We understand that many are in the same financial situation, but ask those that who are still financially stable to do what they can to help others,  If this means that you are able to donate to our cause VMAC and those who depend on us every week will be forever grateful.  

The amount we are trying to raise reflects 1 month rent for the two locations we lease.  We have applied to the SBA loans and hope we will be able to benefit from those but in the meantime we are dire need of funds.


Online Videos and Classes
Instructors who are not teaching will still be posting ways to practice including step by step break down videos for partnerwork (for those in isolation with a partner) and individual body movement, footwork, etc. These will be available for purchase and will benefit both the instructor and VMAC. Once these are ready we will post more information about it!
