Portlanders have ants in their pants and the only solution is to DANCE! Ballrooms have been a part of Portland night life since the early 1900’s at legendary venues like The Crystal Ballroom (Linda was one of the main Ballroom instructors when the Crystal reopened in the 80’s), The Viscount, The Laurelhurst, and Norse Hall. And there are newer venues like the Bossanova Ballroom, Bushwhackers, The Secret Society and The Trio Club.

There is currently a resurgence of passion for partner dancing and DanceWell gets you up to speed quickly.

Linda Springstead’s DanceWell 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!

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 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.

DanceWell is unique…[link to “What Makes Us Special”]

DanceWell has grown to THREE LOCATIONS. In addition, to our long traditions of teaching dance in Tigard and Beaverton, as of June 2017 we are proud to be in NE Portland (Parkrose).

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