Dutch Roll

I was on a flight last night and I think we experienced a Dutch Roll. It was pretty scary. Can anyone give me more insight on if they have experienced this before or what causes it? I’m wondering how often it happens. I am usually on about 20 flights a year and I have never experienced this before.

Lots of things are possible, thankfully pilots train for many scenarios. You'll probably have better luck asking Google for more information.
