Dear Dancin' Friends,

DANCING 'TIL DUSK is in full "swing" this week with music by THE BILLY JOE SHOW tonight in Seattle's Occidental Park and by CASEY MacGILL on Thursday in Seattle's Hing Hay Park.

RANDY LITCH sings and plays guitar this Thursday at the Tacoma Elks for dancing in the beautiful Allenmore Events Center. Ballroom, Latin and Swing dancers love the variety of music he plays.

Learning to dance is a great summer activity for kids. They learn a skill, meet others their age, and get excercise. LaVIDA STUDIO in Kirkland is offering not only a free trial dance class but also a whopping 75% off registration through the end of this month. Grab this deal before it evaporates!

Scroll down for details on the above events and more plus a new DANCE CALENDAR with 91 dances between now and August 1 ... who said summer is a slow time for dancing?
