What’s buzzin’, cousin?

So I thought going to a place that has traditional Swing dancing lessons, followed by some Swing dancing tunes would be a killer.

Portland Swing Dancing Club has a few options.

“The Portland Swing Dance Club (PSDC) is dedicated to the enjoyment, preservation, and growth of West Coast Swing in the Northwest. We were founded in 1999 to share the fun and excitement of West Coast Swing and welcome anyone and everyone to come dance.”

“We host two dances a month— on the second and fourth Saturdays— to dance with friends and guests. Come dance West Coast Swing, Night Club Two Step, Hustle, and Latin to a variety of contemporary, blues, funk, and jazz that has the floor mixed with dancers of all levels and all ages.”

I know it’s on a weekend, but what are you going to be doing with your weekends, anyway? Doesn’t getting down sound spectacular? Oh, and free pizza on November 28th!

Unfortunate, but it seems like the Swing community in Portland is dying. “http://swingtimepdx.com/” has no upcoming events, but past events seemed to be scheduled fairly frequently at places like Wonder Ballroom and Crush. Huh.

There’s some dancing over at this place : http://www.pdjs.org/ of the Swing variety scheduled every Sunday from noon to five. It’s a mere fifteen dollars for non-members: http://www.portlanddancing.com/moreinfo.aspx?moreinfo=1207
