…our second most popular weekly event- the Guided Practicum
Stumptown Dance hosts a guided practicum, where you can receive individual attention and incorporate the things you’re working on into your social dancing. Instructors, Mindy Barnhart and/or Sam Estrem are available to help! On the social dance floor, instruction/feedback is generally considered impolite. The friendly, safe atmosphere of the practicum, provides an opportunity for you to ask for little bits of feedback that can really make a difference in your total dancing experience. All ages! No partner needed! All levels! See more info HERE.
Note- We dance at the Melody Ballroom (615 SE Alder) EVERY Monday (including holidays & in bad weather) unless noted on this page!
