Seabeck

“It’s-A-Happening”

Join us for the re-emergence of Seabeck Dance Camp, November 3–6, 2022!
We are planning a “groovy” weekend of shared meals, 14 hours of dance classes, 2 live bands, and DJed late-night dancing every night—all in the spirit of the 1960s! So haul out your bell bottoms and tie-dye, or your memories or pictures of your parents from way back when—and come on over to our favorite spot on Hood Canal: Seabeck Conference Center.

The Seabeck ’22: A-Happening bands are booked! Registration has been extended to October 2!

We have 66 groovy dancers ready to learn some great moves and to dance to 2 amazing bands.
A few more leads would make our classes more balanced. How about it, leads?

Friday night we’ll rock with Kelly Van Camp and the Flaming Pies—a reincarnation of the Fab Four, specializing in many of their most danceable, yet lesser known, tunes.

Saturday we’ll roll with the righteous Ron Bailey and the Tangents, a band we all know are ‘experienced.’
