Northwest 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.

  • Pre-dance lesson: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Dance: 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
  • Cost: Lesson and dance $15 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.

From time to time, Northwest Dance 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.

Weds Feb 13 Class Party Sweetheart Dance

At our last class party and dance we had about a hundred people in attendance.  It was great fun.  Please join us this Wednesday to dance and celebrate those dancers who have just finished a class series.  We want to encourage the “new” dancers to get out and use their newly learned skills.

There will be dancing of course, but there are usually some demonstrations and a mixer or two.  The evening is informal, and it would be great if you brought a snack to share.

Dance: 7pm to 9:30pm to DJ’s  Lilli Ann Carey and Zachariah Cassady

Suggested Donation: $5 or more. Free for recent class graduates.

Location: Swedish Club, midway between South Lake Union and Fremont at 1920 Dexter Ave. N.
