Portland, OR

The Portland Blues and Jazz Dance Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Portland, Oregon. PB&J is designed to balance the organizational load of running a dance venue and community Blues events among multiple leaders, as well as give the community a wide range of people to work with. A lateral and consensus-driven organizational structure encourages participation from the community by making organizers accessible, integrated, and individually empowered to affect change.  We exist to create a safe, sustainable, and vibrant Blues and Jazz dance community through the free exchange of ideas, utilization of community knowledge, and promotion by example. PB&J seeks to reignite public interest in partnered dancing and grow Blues as a dance form through the exploration of various styles of movement and promotion of both solo and partnered social dancing.  This organization was created and is run by dancers. We love blues music and we want you to love it too. Come dance with us!

Tuesday Blues

Tuesday Blues is an all-ages, weekly social partner dance event in Portland established in 2003, and is open to people of all dance backgrounds and experience. It offers both beginner and intermediate lessons before each of our weekly dances. We strive to have an inclusive environment at all our dances, where we can grow dancers into community members. Every Tuesday night we bring you the best Blues dancing, DJs, and live music Portland has to offer. If you'd like to receive weekly updates on our dances, join our newsletter here!

Tuesday Blues is centered around playing Traditional Blues music, however the last hour of each night is DJ's choice and may include some "Alt Blues" music as well. There's no partner required, no experience required—just a love for the blues and a desire to move!
