Our venue: Salmon Bay Eagles

Come dance with us in the intimate, quirky upstairs ballroom at Salmon Bay Eagles (SBE), 5216 20th Ave NW in Ballard; the sign outside says FOE (Fraternal Order of Eagles). Go in the double door with stairs going up, right of the door heading into the bar downstairs. The ballroom floor is gorgeous old hardwood, fast and very easy on feet & knees.

There's street parking all around, and parking's easy on Monday nights. There's a pay lot next door to SBE, and the Swedish Ballard parking garage is a block north at 5300 Tallman Ave NW (street view). SBE is well served by transit.

History: our venues

Waltz etcetera started 7 January 1999, in the Phinney Neighborhood Center. We could barely hear our inadequate boombox over street noise and creaking floorboards. After a month we moved to the Civetta Apartments dance studio.

In the summer of 2001 we moved to the Richmond Masonic Center in Shoreline, having outgrown the Civetta. We loved that space, but it got put on the market in January 2008, so then we moved to the Lake City Community Center. I started putting on workshops and occasional dances at SBE beginning in 2010 and fell absolutely in love with the ballroom. In January 2018 I moved Waltz etcetera there.
