DanceWell PDX Parkrose Location

News Update:

Rumor has it that the owner of the Parkrose studio location on 105th and NE Sandy will close the building at the end of September 2017.  We’re happy to announce this is not so since it’s in a great location for many eastside PDX, Gresham and Vancouver students.  As I understand it, the new name will be Parkrose Ballroom.

DanceWell will continue to hold OCTOBER classes and lessons at the location on Tuesdays. 7pm Cha Cha and 8pm Nightclub Two Step.  We will keep everyone up on any additional news on this blog.

Parkrose Studio
Entrance to Parkrose studio on 105th. Best parking on north side of Sandy in the Hardware parking lots.
