NOTICE: Until we find someone we can pay to manage the door, we are looking for volunteers who would like to trade the cost of admission for an hour working the door. Please contact us right away! portlanddanceeclectic@gmail.com or debra.iguchi@gmail.com

Portland Dance Eclectic is looking for people who would be interested in being paid to watch the door so dancers are free to dance.
