what sort of music do we play?

All the traditional Folk AND Ballroom favorites plus line dances, sets (squares or contras) and mixers to recorded international music: Waltz, Polka, Two step variations & pattern dances along with Ragtime, Swing, and Tango.

We teach walk-throughs for the first hour - then respond to requests &  "anything goes" after that until closing.

In addition, you can bring a thumb drive, or CD tune for us to copy and then it will be played as often as its popularity demands!

No partner necessary. Come by yourself or bring friends.

$10 ($8 for Kirkland residents), credit cards OK. Pay at the desk.
Paying for 4 sessions is $30 ($25 for Kirkland residents).

our regulars like that every dance is a little different

Although I am very enthusiastic about either waltz, tango and certain line dances, I don't want to do the same thing all night. So just like our weather, I wait 3 or 4 minutes and there is a completely different atmosphere!
