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.

We are going into our 2nd year of progressive Jack & Jill contests, and we’re expanding!
This year, we’ll be competing in 4 divisions: Newcomer, Novice, Masters and Intermediate/Advanced. Novice and Masters will normally dance at the second Saturday dances at Sunnyside Grange. Newcomer and Intermediate/Advanced will dance at the 4th Saturday dances at Norse Hall. Finals will be held in April 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.
