About Us

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 Love What We Do

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 DJ might even throw in some Night Club Two Step or Country Two Step!

Jack & Jill Contests

We are in our 2nd year of progressive Jack & Jill contests, and we’ve expanded!

This series, we’ll be competing in 4 divisions: Newcomer, Novice, Masters, and Intermediate/Advanced. Contests will normally be held at the second Saturday dances at Sunnyside Grange. Finals will be held in August 2018 or later.

Jack & Jill competitions are great to participate in and fun to watch too! Randomly paired couples dance to DJ-selected songs to test their skills as leads and follows.
