Start the month the right way by learning to dance! Free beginners salsa lesson for everyone at 9pm bring your friends! Come learn something new, make new friends and beat the cold weather with a bit of Latin dancing!

After 9:30pm it will be open practice to music. Come to dance and practice your moves in a non-intimidating environment while making new friends in the process. This is a beginner friendly event all skill levels welcome.

Everyone at Lines Dance Studio is really friendly you are guaranteed to dance even if you are a beginner. So ladies say yes when asked and fellas don't forget to ask the ladies to dance!

There's street parking and you can park behind the state farm building in the u.s. bank parking lot where there is plenty of parking available.

If you take public transportation it's only like 2 blocks from the max station.

------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT TO WEAR:

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable! However do remember you are going to be getting a good workout and will be sweating.

Below are some recommendations.

WHAT KIND OF SHOES TO WEAR: Any shoe with a flat sole.

Good shoes for dancing for ladies: Heels is the norm (they help with your spinning). Avoid high heels if you're a beginner (try with 1 or 2 inches then go higher as you get better in your dancing). If you are interested in dancing shoes speak to instructor Anita for advice.

Good shoes for dancing for guys: Any shoe with a flat sole, dress shoes for guys (non-rubber sole if possible preferably leather sole)

Bad shoes for dancing: sneakers, tennis shoes, flip flops, bowling shoes.

ALSO BRING:

WATER: You might need it. Bring your own or you can buy bottled water there for 50c

GUM: Remember you'll probably be dancing with someone so be courteous.

YOUR SMILE: Nobody likes to dance with a poker face. Show your smile while dancing! Remember dancing is fun, dancing is happiness, be happy!

    I was asked to clarify about the lesson that starts at 7:30pm. It's a beginners & intermediate lesson so no matter what your skill level you can benefit from it. If you are new to dancing or feel you have no "rhythm" you should definitely take it as it will help you work those muscles and help you build your dance muscle memory. I hope you join us!

    Hey everyone. Just a reminder Westside Dance Practice Night is moving to 1st saturday just for the month of march (the Lines Dance Studio crew is performing in Seattle on 1st friday so the studio will be closed). The regular salsa class at the studio on fridays at 7:30pm will be held that saturday from 7:30pm-9pm ($15). So if you want to get extra practice join us for the lesson at 7:30 I'll be there. :)
