Dance Parties Open to the Public every week in Tigard Oregon

What are dance parties?

The Ballroom Dance Company hosts public dance parties every week. These are an opportunity for students to practice what they learn in class, and an opportunity for the public to come to watch and participate ballroom dancing.

Most dances begin with a 1/2 hour beginners class, which is included in the price of admission. Guests usually come as individuals, though couples and groups are always welcome. Our dances are open to anyone who wishes to attend...just show up and enjoy dancing!


Weekly dance parties open to the public:

Every Sunday Night
Sunday Night Social: $5 Admission

Every Friday Night
Friday Night Fusion: $5 Admission
7:00pm - Midnight


Friday Night Fusion is the first step in the Dance Freedom Project's efforts to bring together all kinds of dance. This weekly event is an exciting collision of nightclub, latin, swing, blues, dubstep, and just plain silly things from days gone by. This dance offers something for just about everyone, and if you don't like what you hear, feel free to make a request and we'll try to accommodate.

In addition to music and amazing people, there will be free food. And I'm not talking about a lame, light appetizer spread either. We will have everything from fruit to peanut butter and jelly sandwich fixings and a sampling of sugar based treats. There will even be a few options for our gluten free and herbivorous leaning dancers.

3) Meet friends and potential partners.
4) Dances allow you to practice what you learned in your private or group lessons.
5) Dancing in public will make you more comfortable later when you want to dance at your office party, or other special event.
6) Public dances give you exposure to a wide variety of music and dance styles.
7) Dances are a great venue to develop your floorcraft (your ability to navigate a crowded floor)
8) A 150 pound person burns 918 calories ballroom dancing for 3 hours.
9) Dances provide an escape from your high stress day of cell phones and instant messages, and gives you the opportunity to partake in an art that has lasted the test of time.
10) Dancing sharpens your mind. The June 10, 2003 New England Journal of Medicine, indicated ballroom dancing helps prevent dementia. Researchers found a startling 76 percent risk reduction from dementia through frequent participation in ballroom dancing. Ballroom dance received the highest score for dementia prevention of all hobbies and physical activities measured in the study.
