Dear Dancin' Friends,

DEAN PATON is a busy man. He manages the dances for NWDance.net (including this Saturday's dance in Ballard with the band PEARL DJANGO); he heads up THE VALSE CAFÉ ORCHESTRA; he puts on the WALTZ CAFÉ @ THE CENTURY BALLROOM dances; he's producing the amazing MASQUERADE X: DANCING & CABARET coming up on Friday of next week at the Century; and he has new classes in Swing, Foxtrot, and Viennese Waltz starting tonight and tomorrow in West Seattle. Go Dean, go!

BRIORA BALLROOM in Redmond has two special events this week: JONATHAN ROBERTS whom you may have seen on "Dancing with the Stars" is teaching workshops in Waltz and Tango this Thursday; then on Friday everyone's invited to celebrate five years at the BRIORA ANNIVERSARY PARTY. Briora is the most beautiful studio and ballroom in the area!

Full details on these events and more are in the Headliner Ads and new two-week DANCE CALENDAR below.

See you dancing! -- Ron Bolin

MASQUERADE X: DANCING & CABARET IN A 1908 BALLROOM
FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 2017.

Expect Swing, Latin, Waltzes, Foxtrots, Quicksteps, Blues and more. Masquerade is not a “couples” dance: Indeed the whole idea is to dance with anonymous strangers—and see what ensues. Enjoy the mystery as you wonder who is in your arms (and, as some have said, even wonder what part of your persona—freed by the mystique of the mask—might be blossoming forth to put a new “you” on the dance floor).

Doors open at 8:30 PM with dancing from 9:00 PM to 12:30 AM— three and a half hours of dancing—plus enjoy performances by CABARET d'ARTISTE during two brief band breaks. Only rule: You must wear a mask until the official “unveiling” (you can buy masks at the door for $5).

Tickets: $55 until midnight Thursday, January 25. Day-of $65 at the door (if any remain). www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3208596
Location: Century Ballroom, 915 E Pine Street, 2nd floor, Seattle, WA 98122
