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.
