Kiosco - Convenience Store
To make it easier to get the last minute stuff you were not able to purchase while getting to class or to the milongas, we created a convenience store within the Norse Hall.
The store features great freshly made sandwiches and salads from the F&B Cafe for your lunch on the fly between classes.
Soft drinks of any kind and munchies to quiet rumble stomachs while trying to get those steps you wanted so much to learn will be on sale!
Napkins, band aids, pens and our feature T-Shirt to remind you that Portland is a cool place to be and the Festival an event to revisit in the future, will be availble at the Kiosko place, the coolest place in town!

Many women become addicted to the brands and the expert service they receive, and even after 10-hour office days and long nights out, they swear by the killer stilettos that feel like slippers.
