Dance Calendar through March 30, 2017


Dear Dancin' Friends,

Spring has sprung!
This Saturday I'm going to check out First Class Ballroom in Everett at their SPRING SHOWCASE from 6 to 7:30 PM, then it's about a fifteen minute hop down to Lynnwood for MERLY'S VARIETY DANCE at the Hayloft where dancing starts at 8 PM. I hope to see you at one or both!

Not all Country dances are the same!
Like any dances, there are big differences depending upon the DJ/host and the crowd that they draw. You can make a comparison this weekend with ROBB BRYAN'S COUNTRY DANCE on Friday at the Hayloft and JENNIFER MARZOLF'S COUNTRY DANCE on Saturday at the Verve ... both in Lynnwood. If you really like Country, you'll enjoy both!

In addition to social dances, there are plenty of NEW CLASSES starting this week and next week including at PACIFIC BALLROOM DANCE in Auburn, LaVIDA STUDIO in Bellevue, FIRST CLASS BALLROOM in Everett, and the HAYLOFT DANCE HALL in Lynnwood.

Full details on these and other events are below plus the complete, up-to-date DANCE CALENDAR.

Ron's Song of the Week:
Johnny B. Goode by CHUCK BERRY:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNeEb7I3bwI

Even though my theme last Saturday was "Class of '67" I played this 1958 hit in honor of Chuck Berry who passed away earlier that day at the age of 90. It was the hit of the night.

Ron Bolin
