About

The ESDC is a non-profit organization comprised entirely of volunteers. Our mission is to enrich Eugene’s dance community and to promote west coast swing and other complementary dances. (See our bylaws for more information.)

Dances

  • Every Monday night
  • Lessons at 7:00PM, open dancing from 8:00-10:30PM.
  • The Vet’s Club (1626 Willamette Street)
  • $5 members & students, $7 public.


Every Monday starts at 7pm with beginning and intermediate lessons. Often the Beyond Basics class is also during this time (starting fall 2014). The lessons are followed by a social dance at 8pm in the ballroom. Music played includes pop, blues, R&B, hip hop, country, and alternative. Admission cost, covering lesson and social dance, is $5 for ESDC members, Portland WCS members, Life Balance Program members, and students. Community dancers pay $7. Sign up for an annual membership for $30 and save $2 on each week’s admission, plus get into that night’s dance free. Membership is only $15 after July 1.

We also host quarterly events and workshops taught by some of west coast swing’s professional dancers. Check out our instructors!

Whether you are a beginning or accomplished dancer, if you love west coast swing we invite you to join! Membership includes discounted entry not only to all of our events, but to all of the Portland Swing Dance Club Events as well. We also offer subscriptions to the ESDC dance newsletter to keep you apprised of the dancing opportunities in Eugene and its surrounding areas.

Returning Soon! Members: Check your email.

Dear dancing community,

We’re very close to returning to dancing.┬áIf you were a member in 2020, your membership is still good through 2021.

Members should check their inboxes for updates on some limited member-only dances.

Once we have the go-ahead from the Vets Club and the proper authorities to open to full capacity, we’ll be back at our usual time and place.

Until then, we’ll be at home practicing those solo drills and watching the dance videos we always planned to.

See you soon!
