Quick Details
Quick Details

Typical Dance Info (this might change a bit with each scheduled dance).

* Dance Lesson: 7:30 pm, (lesson TBD) with Andy Hebert: typically, basics for the beginners and a variation or two for those who already know the basics.

* Music:  C&W, pop, rock, oldies & contemporary, swing, a little ballroom (we're request-driven, so be sure to ask for what you want!)  Occasionally we have a band, but most dances are DJ'd.

* Adults only.

* Casual dress.

* Doors open at 7pm and we dance until about midnight.

* Alcohol:  No bar, but you're welcome to bring your own soft alcohol (beer, wine, hard alcohol). You are responsible!  

*  Refreshments:   

    ~ We'll have a snack table out:  Feel free to bring something to share if you like. 

   ~ You're also welcome to bring your own takeout and enjoy your meal here as part of your night out.  We just ask that you pick up after yourselves.

   ~ Bottled water and canned soda pop are available.  Coffee is often available in cold-weather months.

* Address:  Heart of Rock Farm, 19270 SW Pacific Hwy, Sherwood, 97140.  Look for our sign.  Call if you get lost:  (503) 309-0318 or (503) 313-2872. 

* Parking:  Park in the lighted grass lot if parking alongside the long reception barn is full.  Please don't park next to the restroom, and don't block any exits or traffic paths.  Also, please, don't run over our lighted cones!!!

* Departure:  This is very important as there have been more accidents on 99W recently...when you leave, go out the back way (look for the arrow signs).  This is a safer exit to 99W, from which you can turn left or right.  The front road allows a right turn only, and it's a bit of a blind curve with traffic speeding around the corner as you're trying to depart.

Remembering Ty Hebert

We were honored to host Ty's Celebration of Life on on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at Heart of Rock Farm.    Ty and Andy Hebert have been an integral part of Heart of Rock Farm's history from the beginning, and Andy still teaches dance lessons for us whenever we hold a barn dance.  We love you Andy, and we miss you Ty!

Welcome Social Dancers & Dance Friends!

Whenever we can, we’re hosting Barn Dances at Heart of Rock Farm.  You’re invited to come out and dance with us.

We don't have a set schedule for dances because we have to plan them between farm chores, DJ gigs and farm events, so check back here from time to time or sign up at the bottom of the page for email notices.  Most of our dances are held late fall through late spring, but once in a while we're able to squeeze in a summer dance date.  Dances are almost always on Saturdays.  

The doors open at 7 pm (unless there's no lesson and then we open at 7:30).  We we usually offer a beginning-level dance lesson at 7:30.  Most of the time Andy Hebert is our dance instructor.  

Come alone or bring a partner (or better yet, a group of friends).  We'll be playing a mixture of danceable classic rock, country, contemporary music, swing, and requests.  We cater to a variety of dance styles, including "shake your booty" and the high school don't worry if you don't know any particular partner dances or line dances.

We hold these events because: 

  1.  We love to dance, and we like sharing that activity with like-minded friends; we know how to choose good dance music; and we like dancing on a good floor (which we have!). 
  2. This is the ONLY way we can squeeze in time with our long-time dance friends. 

Dance Lessons:

We tend to gear our lessons toward beginners because we want to share the love of partner dancing with new people.  However, we love it when experienced dancers participate.  We’ve found that it’s really helpful for beginners to have experienced dancers in the lesson with them. 

Very often, our volunteer guest instructor is Andy Hebert.  We attended Ty's and Andy's lessons at the Milwaukie Elks for years, and we learned a lot from them.  We’re grateful that Andy is willing to teach for us, and I'm sure Ty is watching from above with approval.    

Andy typically starts out with a beginner-level lesson, and then kicks it up a notch at the end for the more-experienced dancers who are kind enough to jump in for the benefit of the beginners.

Dance Floor

Our floating dance floor is one of the largest in the region:  about 1600 square feet.   There's lots of room, so bring a friend!  Remember:  line dancers and stationary dancers in the middle, and traveling couples to the outside (counter clockwise).  We value and appreciate good dance floor etiquette!


We don't offer bar service but you're welcome to BYO beverage (soft alcohol only).  Please drink responsibly (which is normally the case with dancers, anyway).

There is bottled water and pop available for $1.  Help yourself from the 'fridge and drop a dollar in the cash box.  Water is also available from a dispenser on the counter, but our well water is not the tastiest.  If it's cold out, we often offer coffee as well.

We always have snacks on hand, and you're welcome to bring something to contribute to the snack table if you like.

We've occasionally had Meet-Up groups ask if it's okay to bring pizza or take-out for their group.  Go for it!  All we ask is that you clean up after yourselves. 


If it's not raining heavily, park in the field across the driveway.  If it's a muddy day and the gravel lot is full, remember that you can park alongside the gravel roads leading in and out of the property and there’s additional parking behind the Onion Barn. 

Dress Code:

Be comfortable!  If the ladies are wearing high heels, drop them off at the door before you find your parking space.  The lot is pretty gravely. 

If it's raining, please wear street shoes in and then change to dance shoes to keep the dance floor dry.  

Call us if you have any questions or need directions.

The address is Heart of Rock Farm, 19270 SW Pacific Hwy, Sherwood, OR 97140.  We put lighted signs out on dance night.  Phone or text is (503) 309-0318. 

And, as always, it's okay to invite friends!  See you on the dance floor.
