Our flagship dance: friendly, casual, and very well attended (60-80 dancers), every Monday including holidays at the Lake City Community Center. We've been putting on a weekly dance since January 1999.
Every Monday at 6:30 pm we offer two classes running concurrently, one for beginners and one for experienced dancers. We've been teaching dance since September 1999. We usually teach waltz, but sometimes mix it up a bit; check Z's dance forecast to see what we're teaching now. Classes are $15 per person, or $20 for class + dance.
We play about half waltzes, half a mix of swing (east & west), blues, cha-cha, nightclub 2-step, foxtrot, salsa, tango etcetera. Around 9:30 we dial it down & play more intimate music: blues, fusion, alternative tango, etc. We dance until 10, sometimes later. Friendly dancers and always a good turnout. Come dance! $6, but don't let financial hard times keep you away. Come dance, pay what you can.

First & third Sundays we have an afternoon dance in Ballard. This is a sweet, more intimate dance than the big dance on Mondays, with a crew of very friendly dancers. We have a drop-in class at 1 pm followed by a dance from 2-4 pm. Sunday classes tend to be more experimental and advanced than Monday classes. Music for the dance is similar to what we we play Mondays. $15 for the class, $6 for the dance, $20 for both.
