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.

March 3: The Wiretappers

The Wiretappers are an acoustic string band from the Seattle area, playing a mix of juke joint music, western swing, classic country, dance hall honky-tonk, and hillbillly jazz, with a bit of bluegrass, jazz standards, gypsy, and funky folk mixed in. Their sound is groove-oriented and perfect for getting dancers out on the floor, with great instrumentals, lead vocals and lots of harmony singing. Expect some classic two steps and romantic waltzes as well. Should be an evening to cut loose and enjoy the kick-ass dynamics of a great western swing band.

Pre-dance lesson: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. .

Dance: 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Cost: $15 general admission payable by cash or check at the door, $10 students under 23 with ID.

Location:  Leif Erikson Hall, 2245 N.W. 57th St. Seattle

Parking:  Through a cooperative relationship with Banner Bank, immediately east and next door to the Leif, free parking will be available at this dance in the Banner Bank lot. Parking is also available at the Ballard Health Club immediately south of the hall.

March 17: Casey MacGill Quartet

What a great way to spend Saint Patrick’s Day!

Casey MacGill performs music that swings. Nat “King” Cole Trio meets the Mills Brothers. Fats Waller meets Fats Domino. Slim Galliard meets Fred Astaire. It is American music of many decades and no decade in particular, all happening at the same time, woven into a seamless, beautiful whole. At the core of his sound are his band’s sometimes sweet, sometimes rough-hewn three-part harmony vocals and a piano-ukulele-bass-and-drums rhythm section that swings in a variety of textures.

Expect a lot of great dance music featuring East Coast Swing but also some West Coast, Latin and even a Waltz or two.

Pre-dance lesson: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Guy Caridi and Nancy Fry.

Dance:  8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Cost: $15 general admission payable by cash or check at the door, $10 students under 23 with ID.

Location: Leif Erikson Hall,  2245 N. W. 57th St, Seattle 98107

Parking: Through a cooperative relationship with Banner Bank, immediately east and next door to the Leif, free parking will be available at this dance in the Banner Bank lot. Parking is also available at the Ballard Health Club immediately south of the hall.
