In-Person Class Series and Workshop Announcement
Dear NW Dance Network Community,
Thank you all for your understanding, kindness, and patience over the past 16 months.
- You faithfully attended our online workshops while we figured out how to Zoom.
- Though the classes were available for free, you donated to our instructors, and you contributed to NDN, too. Financially, we were able to break even because of your generous support. We can’t thank you enough. You all are awesome!
We are so excited to be able to resume our usual class and workshop schedules, live-music dances for September through November! And as we go into December for our last class party of 2021 scheduled for December 1st.
There will be 2 full 5-week Sunday classes and workshop series, which will include a variety of genres, such as waltz, swing, country two-step, foxtrot, line dances, and solo movement. Wren Newman and Scot McKay will teach on Sundays.
With your safety in mind, we will be having vaccinated-only classes and events for the foreseeable future. Here is a link to our COVID policy for all NDN events
The mission of NW Dance Network is to inspire the art, joy, and excellence of non-competitive social dance. We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for dancers of all abilities and aspire for every dancer to enjoy a positive experience at NW Dance Network events.
To best achieve this, we expect all participants attending NW Dance Network events to follow the Code of Conduct
