ROSE CITY SWING – FEBRUARY 26-28
For another really cool destination event on the West Coast come check out Portland, Oregon with me in February and prepared to “get schooled” 🙂  This year “Professor” Sharlott Bott will be bringing her distinct style and some Old School class to a dynamic Pro Staff teaching levelled workshops with focus on concepts, not patterns.  Portland rivals Austin, Texas as a city that prides itself on being “weird” and, like Vancouver offers a variety of fun pre- and post-event options.

Portland is happening NOW http://www.travelportland.com/
