NW Dance Network holds live-music dances twice a month. We offer a pre-dance lesson taught by local or visiting instructors one hour before the dance starts.

    • Cost: $20 general admission payable by cash or check at the door, $10 students under 23 with ID (unless otherwise noted). This price is for the entire evening; we have no separate charge for the pre-dance lesson. Occasionally a special-event dance will cost more.
    • Location: Locations may vary. Please see the descriptions for individual dances.
    • Free Parking: available. Please click here for more information.

From time to time, NW Dance Network also holds class parties, which are DJ’d dances offered at the end of a session of series classes. These dances are excellent opportunities to try out new dance skills! Class parties are free to anyone enrolled in the recent series classes, with a $5 suggested donation for everyone else.

April 1: Pearl Django

Few Northwest bands are stellar enough to be branded “legendary,” but one of those is Pearl Django. These musicians are known across North America (and even in Europe) as masters of Gypsy Jazz, the style of Manouche swing popularized by another legend, Django Reinhardt.

But Pearl Django brings a lot more than “just swing” to their shows. Their jazzy repertoire includes waltz, blues, and Latin numbers, which means dancers will get a luscious variety of snappy dance music.

Time: 7–8pm, pre-dance lesson—Guy and Nancy will be teaching; 8–11pm dance


Location: The Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Ave N, Seattle

There is plenty of parking in two on-site parking lots, as well as overflow parking in a lot across the street

Cost: $20 at the door, cash or credit card

April 15: The Seattle HouseRockers
