Northwest Portland families live within proximity of some fantastic groups and activity organizers to satisfy many interests. PDX Northwest helps to identify the family-friendly destinations and resources in the area.
Dancing with the family helps to promote positive energy and activity between its members. Portland Dancing is an events listing site focused on dancing events and groups that meet in Portland. There are about a half-dozen contributors who add events as they learn about them, and a wide range of dancing styles are included on the list.
They also list several halls and groups that host West Coast Swing, a unique take on the traditional bouncing and jiving along to a big-band sound. As with the other styles listed, the WCS section details groups that offer lessons on this style and provide resources to get in touch with fellow dancers to the peculiar rhythm of WCS.
Cultural styles of dance—such as Irish, Scandinavian and Israeli—are listed, as are unique, upbeat methods such as ecstatic, bhangra, contra, salsa and break dancing. Slower paces are also listed, with such styles as ballroom, waltz and country line dancing included for Northwest Portland residents interested in meeting with fellow dancers of such styles.
