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 to a variety of contemporary, blues, funk, and jazz that has the floor mixed with dancers of all levels and all ages.
The Fourth Saturday Swing provides a classy finish at the end of the month. The Norse Hall is a grand ballroom with table seating, conveniently located near the heart of Portland.
