Dancewell Ballroom History
DanceWell Ballroom, the business, was opened in 1990 and based
in the SE Hollywood district, moving to Lake Oswego and then to the Tigard area in 1994.
As of 2013 we are in two locations, Tigard and Beaverton. We independently teach in both the Ballroom Dance Company building in Tigard and the Beaverton Ballroom storefront in Beaverton. We continue to run a full program of our own group classes as well as host 5-6 parties monthly: a DanceWellPDX Social/Ballroom Saturday Party, and weekly Social/ Ballroom Mix Dances.

DanceWell is well-known for helping students develop good form, lead/follow and timing, and for teaching both American and International-style dances. Both are used regularly on the social dance floor. You can find a list of all dances taught on our Dance Styles Page, from the Ballroom styles to Latin American dances, Swing and Country to Argentine Tango.
Now consisting of several instructors, our program is still most focused on Group Social Dance Instruction and Instructor Training through the Ballroom Dance Teacher’s DVIDA Program. One-to-one private lesson training, and coaching for Student Couples are also popular. And everything is in an atmosphere of fun and team spirit.
Our community of dancers is close and welcoming. With classes and lessons six days a week, and parties every Thursday as well as Second Saturdays, we have much to add to your dancing lifestyle. We hope you’ll enjoy your time with us!
