Executive & Artistic Director

Aimée M. Petrin, the Executive & Artistic Director of Portland Ovations, has been with Ovations for 15 years. Aimée feels blessed to work in such a creative community alongside incredible colleagues, a committed board, fascinating artists and partners near and far who believe in the power of performance to transform lives. Aimée is energized by working deeply in community, supporting artists in the creation of new work, initiating and supporting regional and national performing arts projects – and most of all spending time with her 7-year-old kiddo.

She is currently a member of the University of Southern Maine Board of Visitors and previously served on the board of the Association for Performing Arts Professionals, the Bates Dance Festival Advisory Board, the Maine Arts Commission, Arts Presenters of Northern New England and as an advisor to the National Dance Project. Prior to arriving in Maine, Aimée was at the Flynn Center in Burlington, VT.
