Dance Calendar through February 28, 2019



Dear Dancin' Friends,

Seattle's CENTURY BALLROOM
has 30 dance classes starting this week. Don't worry if you missed the first class ... they'll catch you up!

If you want to learn my personal favorite dance, join WEST COAST SWING 101 next Monday on the second week of class and get on board for four consecutive levels that will continue through June ... or wait a long time for the next round :(

Got kids or grandkids? LaVIDA STUDIO in Kirkland has a wide variety of dance classes ranging from ballet to hip-hop and tap to ballroom. Not sure? Register your child for the first class for free ... I'll bet they'll love it!

Thought you were done with Valentine's Day? I've thought that a few times ... but had to think again :) The FIL-AM POST VALENTINE'S DANCE is this Friday in Algona and MERLY'S VALENTINE'S DANCE is this Saturday in Lynnwood.

DJ RICK GOSSARD plays almost every Saturday and Sunday at Pacific Ballroom Dance in Auburn, but this Saturday is a special LIVE MUSIC NIGHT with CASANOVA!

LILLI ANN CAREY and her daughter CLAIRE CAREY have a new SHADOW WALTZ CLASS starting on Wednesday of next week near Greenlake. If you already know Waltz basics this is a great opportunity to add to your repertoire!

Finally, mark Saturday, March 2, on your calendars for a special Big Band dance that I plan to attend myself. It's a fundraiser in Sammamish featuring music by the MICROSOFT JUMPIN' JIVE ORCHESTRA! This orchestra was founded in 1938 by Bill Gates himself! Uh ... would you believe Paul Allen? Uh ... Al Gore?

Scroll down for details on the above events plus the full DANCE CALENDAR.

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