  • Description - Billings Dance & Performing

    For five generations, the Billings family has been a dynasty in the dance business. Starting in Europe and moving to the U.S. the Christensens (cousins of Richard Billings) founded San Francisco Ballet and Ballet West in Utah. Mr. & Mrs. Richard Billings founded "Billings School of Dance" in Portland in 1932. They enjoyed enormous success operating in the boom years of ballroom dancing (300-600 students per night) and when dance was the main activity for little girls (before soccer and other sports). After many years and hundreds of thousands of students, in 1972 the Senior Billings passed the business on to their son and daughter in law, Dick and Mary Louise Billings. Mary Louises sister and brother in law, Pat and Bob Heath, would later join the operation as co-owners.
