Hey again ~

 

I expect there may be a fair number of you that don't yet know Ron Bolin.  He is the self-appointed "Dancin' DJ" and is another very good source of information for local dance opportunities (see below for his latest).  If you want to be added to his email distribution list (he sends out updates weekly), just email him at [address removed].

 

Now get out there and have some fun!!!

7 Day Alaska Dance Cruise
Dance Calendar March 9 to 22, 2012

Dear Dancin' Friends,

I'm sending this week's Seattle Dance Info email a day early so I can get the word out that I'm looking for seven more leads for my new Wednesday night Cha Cha, Salsa, Tango "survey class" that started last week. Please email me at [address removed] if you want to join this week at a pro-rated price ... we'll review and catch you up. This is a fun group that you'll really enjoy! If you're already experienced at leading these dances you might be able to serve as a balancer for no charge (call me at[masked] if interested). The Level 2 West Coast Swing class has a better balance, but could use two more leads in it. Details on both classes are below.

A few suggestions for this weekend:

Saturday: Speaking of Cha Cha, Salsa and Tango (see above) those also happen to be the three dances that JEANNETTE BAKER will teach in her daytime STEP UP WORKSHOPS at the Rockin' Horse Dance Barn in Renton. These are a great way to warm up for BALLROOM AT THE BARN that evening.

Saturday: RHETT AND SHONA POWERS will be teach the pre-dance beginners Foxtrot lesson at the HAYLOFT DANCE HALL in Lynnwood. They'll also share DJ duties with DJ "M FORCE" MERLY.

Sunday: Join MAIA SANTELL AND HOUSE BLEND at HD HOTSPURS in Kent. Dance to a mix of Swing, Ballroom and Latin, all with no cover charge.

Monday (March 12): Join me, RON BOLIN, THE DANCIN' DJ, for the SEATTLE SINGLES YACHT CLUB DANCE. Held in the big upstairs banquet room at China Harbor Restaurant, this is always quite a party! I'll play fun music that everyone can party to, including lots of Rock and Roll classics. Get there for the pre-dance meeting and choose from several free upcoming boat rides with skippers from the club ... warm weather has to be coming soon! All singles over the age of 21 are invited. Hope to see you there!

Scroll down for full details on all of the above. Also check out the dance calendar with 53 local dances from March 9 - 22. For dances happening before March 9, check the current dance calendar at www.SeattleDanceInfo.com.

Thursday, March 15 and Thursday, March 22
WORKSHOP + PRACTICA EVERY THURSDAY.
7 PM. 90-min in-depth workshop -- click here for full details on current week's topic. 90 minutes gives us time to really dig into the topic, plus our Thursday workshops are smaller than our Monday classes, so you get lots of personal attention. After the workshop I put on a mix of music so you can practice the dance just taught plus other dances. There's also free live blues music in the bar downstairs; we usually head down there after the practica. You can buy drinks & bring them upstairs to the ballroom if you like. At Salmon Bay Eagles,[masked]th Ave NW in Ballard (map link); gorgeous hardwood dance floor. $20. For more info, go to our website or contact Zachariah: [address removed] or[masked]-6836.
