The 31st Annual Portland Dance Festival
is history!


I just can’t say thank you enough to everyone who participated in this year’s 31st annual Portland Dance Festival. I sincerely appreciate your giving up a little bit of your summer to spend the weekend with us here in Portland ~ you helped make the event special and successful in so many ways. It was truly a great weekend of dancing, camaraderie and FUN. It’s very comforting to read so many warm, happy post-event messages from our Facebook family ~ thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. A HUGE thank you also to the volunteer staff and event staff for all of your excellent work, and for taking care of all of our many northwest dance friends! 

The event was filled with lots of great dancing in every division of our UCWDC sanctioned competition, our social Pro-Am divisions, and ALL of our Jack & Jill contests. The energy in the ballroom each day was truly inspirational. Please visit the Contest Results Page on the Portland Dance Festival website to see how everyone did.

I’d like to say a special thank you to all of the pros that danced in our Variety Show, and in the memorial tribute to Nicki Silton. Thanks also to Yvonne and Harmony Wayne for the awesome dance lesson! The show was too much fun. Thank you Portland Swing Dance Club for your excellent “Save the Rainforest” inspired Green decorations in the swing room. I sincerely appreciate the continued support the club has provided throughout the years. Kudos to you!

In closing, I’d like to invite everyone to save the date to join us next year for the 2018 Portland Dance Festival.  The dates are July 12-15, 2018.  Have a safe and amazing summer.
