Weekly Dances

Hello Dancers and welcome to our 2017-18 Winter season! Our first dance takes place Friday, January 12th, and the season will continue through March 2nd. Lessons start at 7:30, and the social dance will begin at 8:30. We hope to see you there! 

We're partnering up with our friends at Track Town Swing to bring you the first dance of our Winter season for free once again! Meet us in Global Scholars Hall, Room 123 at 7:30 pm for our free lesson, followed by our social dance at 8:30 pm! Come as you are, bring a partner or invite your friends!! No experience necessary! There will be no intermediate lesson as we will only be teaching East Coast Swing!

A note: Our Intermediate Lessons are Beyond Basics Lessons, which we intend to be geared toward those who want to build on the knowledge from the beginner lesson. We hope those of you who attend the beginner lesson will consider attending the Beyond Basics lessons, and that more experienced dancers will continue to attend them as well!

Save the date: February 16th is our Winter Formal

Important Announcement:

Hello dancers! We have big news that we would like to share with you. Firstly, we thank you for your continual support and for your time that you spend dancing with us. For this upcoming Spring Term, we will not be hosting our dance events in Gerlinger Hall, as we usually do. Due to financial limitations that the Club has been facing for a long time, we will be hosting in Global Scholars Hall’s Great Room (123) in the spring. However, the Spring Formal will be held in Gerlinger Hall (date pending)! Our events will still be Friday nights, starting at 7:30 with the lesson (stay tuned for changes to the lesson structure based on the room), and social dancing at 8:30. While the room is not as wonderful as the Gerlinger ballroom, it will be available to us as a club, ensuring that we are around for years to come. We will be trying our best to move back into Gerlinger in the Fall. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and our membership email for details as we finalize them. Thank you, from your Oregon Ballroom Dance Club team.


Our last dance of the term, on March 2nd, will take place in Gerlinger Hall, on the UO Campus. Our Friday Night Dances next term will be held in the Global Scholars Hall Great Room, room 123, on the UO Campus. Here is a map for parking around GSH:

Would you like to be involved in our club as a Member (click here) or as an Officer (click here)? Our weekly meetings are open to the public and are a great place to find out what is going on and where we could use some assistance. These take place in Gerlinger from 6:00 to 7:00pm.
