What we're about

Partner dancing is one of the funnest, most creative, interactive and social activities there is -- the perfect catalyst for meeting people, connecting, and forming wonderful relationships both on and off the dance floor! The aim of this Meetup Group is to help create and support a vibrant social dance community in the Greater Seattle area and on the Eastside (Mercer Island, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, etc), and in so doing, to meet other like-minded dance afficionados, to further develop your dance skills and finesse, and to connect to each other through the music and joy of swing, salsa, blues, ballroom and other genre's of social dance!
