About DanceWell

dancewell instructors in training
Linda Springstead’s DanceWell Ballroom Instruction program has offered social dance classes and dance lessons in the Portland area since 1988.  Our reputation for teaching social dancing in the Portland area is one of the best!  Ballroom, Latin, Swing and Nightclub dances; learn to dance them all well!

 The buildings where we hold classes are separate businesses from DanceWell.  Always ask for Linda Springstead and DanceWell, or look for (DW) classes. 

Learn to Social Dance

Our community of social dance is close and welcoming. With dance 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.

Our instructors teach both American and International dance styles. Both are used regularly on the social dance floor. You can find a list of all Dances we Teach, from the Ballroom styles to Latin American dances, Swing and Country, West Coast, Hustle and Nightclub to Argentine Tango.

Now consisting of several instructors, our program is still most focused on Group Ballroom and Social Dance Instruction and Instructor Training through the Ballroom Dance Teacher’s DVIDA Program. One-to-one private lesson training, and partner coaching for Student Couples are also popular. And everything is in an atmosphere of fun and team spirit.We hope you’ll enjoy your time with us!

About the DanceWell school

The school itself began in 1988 when Linda Springstead began teaching with the Clackamas Community Ed program.  From there it moved to the SE Hollywood district, Lake Oswego and finally to the Tigard Oregon area in 1994.  Since 2013 DanceWell Ballroom has independently run a full program of our own group classes as well as hosting 5-6 parties monthly: a Social/Ballroom Saturday Dance Party monthly, and weekly Social/ Ballroom Mix Dances.  Dance classes are currently inside both the Ballroom Dance Company building in Tigard and the DanceFit Ballroom storefront in Beaverton.   Find a map on our Contact page
