We would like to invite you into a family of dancers who share your passion to dance. We hope to create a dance atmosphere that is welcoming to beginning and experienced dancers alike. The Portland Swing Dance Club is born out of a desire for people to thrive with West Coast Swing.
We are a non-profit organization. The membership dues, dance income, and donations go back into the dance community. The Board of Directors operate as a volunteer service. By becoming a member, you will be a part of our mission to foster the growth of West Coast Swing in the Northwest. We value each and every member. Without you, there is no club.
Every member pays just $8 at each dance rather than the $15 fee for guests. So if you play by the numbers, you will save over $168 per year on just dances alone. Come to our workshops with pros, and your savings get better and better.
Regional clubs will also honor your membership for their dances. Visiting Seattle? Dance with Seattle friends at the Seattle Swing Club’s membership price if you’re a PSDC member. Likewise, if you are visiting from another dance club, you get to take advantage of our club’s membership prices too.
Our membership fee is prorated at $30 per year. If you join after July 1st, membership for the remainder of the year is $20. After October 1st, $10 allows you to enjoy the membership benefits for the remainder of the calendar year.
If you are a full time student and money is tight, don’t miss out on taking breaks from studying and relieving stress by dancing it all away because your membership price is only $10 for the year.
Come to any of our dances and sign up as a PSDC Member at the front desk. We take checks or cash for the membership fee of $30. You may also pay with a Visa credit card with a service fee.
