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 and watch 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!
