…our second most popular weekly event- the Guided Practicum
Stumptown Dance hosts a guided practicum, where you can receive individual attention as well as have time to incorporate the things you are working on into your social swing 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 those little bits of feedback that can really make the difference in your total dancing experience. All ages! No partner needed! All levels welcome! 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!
