Enhance your dance at Northwest Dance Network with standalone dance workshops. The instructors will review basics and then introduce each topic in a playful way. Dance workshops allow time for guided practice as well as instruction.

What you need to know:

  • No partner necessary! While you can sign up with a partner, many dancers attend workshops solo.
  • Location: Swedish Club, 1920 Dexter Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109.
  • Cost:  Each workshop is $20 if you pre-register by the Thursday before the workshop, or $30 if you pay at the door.
  • When applicable, dancers register as leads or follows, as they prefer. In some workshops, all participants learn both leading and following; these workshops are designated as open role.
  • If you are registering using a gift certificate, please contact us to register.
  • If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
