  • This is an experiment in reopening. We ask for your patience while we figure out how to stay safe while gradually returning to normal operations.  PCDC reminds you that our indoor events must comply with county, state, and CDC guidelines.  As such, participants must show Proof of Vaccination and wear effective properly fitting masks.  Keep watching this space for updates.

  • English Country Dances have restarted (Proof of vaccination and masks required, click link for all the details)

  • The next PCDC Tune Session class is Thursday, August 12, 2021, 7-9p (contact Sharon for details).

  • UPDATE! Due to the latest health guidelines, the September 1st Joyride dance has been cancelled.  Keep checking the Joyride web site for important details on Covid protocol information before attending any Joyride event.

  • Sadly, Northwest Passage Dance Camp for 2021 has been cancelled due to COVID-19 related health/safety concerns. We plan to rehire 2021 staff for 2022 where possible. Be sure to mark Sep 2-5, 2022 on your calendar for next year. More info at the camp website.

  • Folks informally meet to play music at the Tuesday Pizza Jam sessions (not an official PCDC activity).

  • Our Portland Contra Committee has been very active during the dance shut-down, including adopting a new Contra Dance Etiquette policy. It has many helpful tips for creating a great dance experience for all. Together we can build a community that is fun, welcoming, and safe for everyone.
