Do Jump! Extremely Physical Theater was launched in 1983 at Echo Theater and has maintained its vibrancy during the transition to Echo Theater Company & School. The Echo Theater Company School teaches its unique style of story-telling and movement to over 2000 students of all ages (1.5 – 87).
In 2013, Echo Theater Company assumed management of the historic Echo Theater from Do Jump!, maintaining what has become an important hub of arts and culture in the iconic Hawthorne District of Portland. The current Education Director Wendy Cohen and Creative Director Aaron Wheeler-Kay are former Do Jump! Performers and have worked in this unique hybrid of performance styles for a combined 40 years.
