    Hi everyone,

    Long time lurker, first time poster here. My wife and I have been taking swing dancing lessons since early this year, starting with East Coast and then starting Lindy in the summer. There is no social swing dancing where we live, but we are moving to Portland, Oregon very soon.

    Portland has plenty of places to dance, but I haven't found many places that offer (we did do the free lesson at the Norse Hall on a trip a couple months ago and had fun). Does anyone know some good places that offer Lindy Hop classes/private instruction in Portland?

    Thanks to anyone who responds,
    Akylas

    Try here.

    And now that I see they do Lindy Hop in the Vintage Swing series, with Vintage Swing 3, (starts soon!) I may get down there myself, since I'm "limited to" West Coast and East Coast having only had 1 or 2 Lindy Hop lessons.

    Let us know how it works out for you, and welcome to both DF and Portland.

    That looks like a good place. I may start with their swing 1 series to test what I've learned and see what they emphasize differently.

    Thanks for the find and welcome. I'm in the midst of house hunting in Portland right now. I hope to be moving soon.

    Officially accepted my job and was accepted for a place to rent. Right by a max station, no less. Hope to officially be a Portland resident soon. I grew up in urban areas bigger than Portland so that part should be easy at least.

    I had my last lesson with my current instructor. It was very kind of her to find no issues with my swingout, even with the unspoken (that can be fixed in this lesson). Looking forward to exploring my new dance home once I get settled in.
