Third Wednesday Queer West Coast Swing at Norse Hall
Dance West Coast Swing with other LGBT Westies. We're meeting inside the weekly West Coast Wednesday dance (admission $8 to the organizers at the door, free beginner lesson at 7:30). The dance is for the general public, but is degendered and LGBT-friendly. Feel intimidated by the dancers at Norse Hall? Want to see some familiar Stomptown faces? We're meeting every Third Wednesday for social dancing and practice with other Queer Westies. The organizers will be wearing Stomptown tees (or rhinestones, whatever).

What we're about

Stomptown is THE country-western dancing community for all LBGTQ and gay-friendly dancers in Portland. We dance every weekend on the 1st, 3rd, & 5th Fridays at Escape Bar & Grill and on the 2nd and 4th Saturday night at Norse Hall in Portland.

Come join our welcoming, friendly and diverse crowd for social dancing fun! Don't know how to dance? No problem--we do lessons, and you don't need to bring a partner! In fact, click on Pages to get more dance instruction and information.

And...we're volunteer-run! All funds go to support Stomptown activities--providing instruction and social dance opportunities and promoting country-western dance in and for our community!

All welcome--boots to sneakers, Wranglers to boas! Women, men, transgender and more!

A recent comment from Wil:

"This was my first time dancing with Stomptown. I wondered if I could find a few people to dance with and although I didn't know anyone there when I arrived, I danced a lot. I enjoyed my time there! People were very inviting and friendly. "
