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: 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
- Dance: 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 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.
June 3: The Max Band
Playing just about all kinds of music—from swing to blues to country to rock and roll—Howard Mack’s band is a favorite Seattle dance band. Look forward to a splendid night of swing and blues with a sprinkling of Latin and even a few waltzes and tangos. The Max Band will feature Howard Mack on vocals, guitar, and ukulele; Dave Moore on keyboards, key bass, and vocals; John Oliver on vocals and drums; and Emily McIntosh on vocals and percussion.
