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.
Dec 15: Casey MacGill
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: 7pm with Guy Caridi and Nancy Fry. They will teach “Jingle Time Swing Variations.”
Dance: 8pm to 11pm
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
