Dear Dancin' Friends,

Singles and couples alike will enjoy the annual RED & WHITE BALL this Saturday, February 13. I've been preparing for a week already to make this a special evening. The hall will be decorated for Valentine's Day. Dress up (semi-formal to formal) ... red and white are nice, but not necessary. A pre-dance Rumba lesson, a buffet of tasty hors d'oeuvres and soft beverages are all included. I'll play a wide variety of Ballroom, Swing, Latin and Country, with extra doses of romantic Slow Dances, Waltzes, Rumbas and Nightclub Two-steps. It's at a beautiful facility in Kent with a great hardwood dance floor. I'll also be dancing there tonight at the KENT TUESDAY NIGHT DANCE featuring RANDY LITCH (you can also catch him this Friday at the BURIEN BALLROOM DANCE).

I need 3 more volunteers to help this Saturday with tables, chairs, decorations, etc. in exchange for free admission. Contact me at Ron@SeattleDanceInfo.com or 425-917-1188 if interested.

Scroll down for full details on all the Valentine's weekend activities plus new dance classes.

See you tonight and Saturday in Kent! -- Ron Bolin
