Possibly no dance on Sunday, March 6, due to the Portland Lindy Exchange (see below). We will vote on the matter.
Significant events, coming soon
The best Portland event of the year is coming up. With 7 bands, 22 hours of live music, and 4 evenings of dancing, the Portland Lindy Exchange invites dancers from around the world to have good times the weekend of March 4-6.
The Portland Lindy Exchange is the real thing. Please make every effort to attend. We will be forming a large carpool for this event.
- Seattle's Camp Jitterbug is Memorial Day weekend in May, but often sells out in April, and prices will increase 20% by then. This event has 3 days of workshops taught by 19 world-class instructors, with 6 different skill levels, and 3 nights of dancing with live music. If you're looking for premier workshops, this is the place to start.
