Dear Dancin' Friends,

There's been a last-minute venue change for this Saturday's CRYSTAL BALL. It will now be held at the Hayloft Dance Hall in Lynnwood. Details are below along with info on a chance to learn the THRILLER DANCE for FREE plus a search for people interested in joining the USA DANCE SEATTLE TEAM DANCERS. I saw them perform a Waltz routine on Sunday at the Grand Dance Extravaganza at the STAR Center in Tacoma ... plus I had a great time dancing too!

Since you'll need to plan ahead, please read below about an upcoming HALLOWEEN PARTY and the annual GLITTERING CHRISTMAS BALL on December 1 ... I enjoyed this very special night last year and just bought my ticket for this year. It could sell out, so don't delay!

Also please note another venue change
for this Saturday. NORTHWEST DANCE featuring BIRCH PEREIRA & THE GIN JOINTS will be at the Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Ave. N, Seattle. Updated details on this and dozens of other dances are in the full DANCE CALENDAR below.

Finally,
I had fun filling in for RANDY LITCH last Tuesday at the KENT DANCE because he had a knee problem. I think I see how he hurt his knee ... check out the picture at www.RandyLitch.net. Anyway, he's back TONIGHT plus at all his other usual venues this week. Check out his full schedule at www.RandyLitch.net/Schedule.

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