Where to Dance the Night Away


Do you love to dance? Do you love the idea of dancing but you are unsure of your two left feet? No problem!

The Evergreen Ballroom in White City, Oregon is the perfect place to take a beginner or intermediate class and put those feet to the test and get out on the dance floor!

As a student of the Argentine Tango classes, I must say that I absolutely enjoy every minute of instruction and putting those newly learned skills to the test. Judith and Jean Paul are incredible instructors who will go out of their way to be sure that you understand what they are asking of you and will work with your for session after session until you get the hang of it. The two are also impressive dancers. Watching them glide around the room with passion and intention is fun to watch. They are the true definition of ‘A Dynamic Duo’.

With many options of different styles of dance to choose from, everyone is bound to find something they will fall in love with here.

To find out more about The Evergreen Ballroom, go to their website here. Or simply just head on down and check it out in person yourself! It will be a fun new experience you won’t forget.
