Dear Dancin' Friends,

This Saturday I'll teach a Swing lesson as the opening act for THE 85TH STREET BIG BAND in Lake Forest Park. They draw a big crowd and there's good mixing at the dance. Come be a part of it ... the more the merrier! Best of all, it's FREE!

Another option for Saturday is the annual SALSA MARINA PARTY in Kirkland. Dance outdoors in a big gazebo! DJ YAMBU and DJ ACHE will spin Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha and Merengue music.

With vacations, summer can be a hard time to commit to a series class, so RICK GOSSARD has scheduled SUMMER 2-WEEK WORKSHOPS that start next week in Auburn. Choose from Ballroom, Latin or Swing at either the beginner or intermediate level.

CENTURY BALLROOM and DANCE UNDERGROUND are both located on Seattle's Capitol Hill and they both have new classes starting the week after next. The Century offers Swing, Salsa, Tango and more with various teachers, while TONY FAN and ILANA RUBIN of The Dance Underground will teach a new series of Argentine Tango just for absolute beginners.

Scroll down for details on these and other events plus the full DANCE CALENDAR.

See you Saturday! -- Ron Bolin, The Dancin' DJ
