Dear Dancin' Friends,


ELTON JOHN plays at Key Arena this Saturday ... or you can just come to Lynnwood for ELTON JOHN NIGHT! The whole evening at the Hayloft will probably cost you less than parking at the Key ... plus you'll be able to dance! I've organized Elton John's music into various dance styles ... Freestyle, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Hustle, Rumba, Nightclub Two-Step, Waltz (see my Song of the Week below), etc ... all of which I'll play, plus I'll include a variety of other music to round the evening out. More of his songs work for Nightclub Two-Step than any other dance style, so that's what I've chosen for the pre-dance lesson. Also, for those who can come from 1 to 4 PM, LYNDA ZEMAN will have three drop-in workshops: Waltz, West Coast Swing, and Nightclub Two-Step, any of which would be a good warm up for the evening dance. If you're looking for Country music, don't miss ROBB BRYAN'S dance at the Hayloft on Friday.

JEANNETTE BAKER has a whopping twenty-three (23) new dance classes starting this week in Renton, including nine (9) classes starting this coming Sunday. Also mark your calendars for her special STAR STUDDED SOIREE coming up on Saturday, October 4.

BRIORA BALLROOM in Redmond now has your choice of either a Newcomer or an Intermediate/Advanced pre-dance lesson ... taking either one will get you into their Friday dance party for free!

The SEATTLE SWING DANCE CLUB has a special dance this coming Monday at the Russian Center in Seattle for the Step-by-Step students, and it's free for SSDC members. Also mark your calendars for Sunday, October 5 when BUDDY SCHWIMMER will teach afternoon workshops prior to the SSDC dance.

DAN BRANSCUMB has plenty for Moonlight Dance Cruises and Camps coming up which are briefly outlined below, but there's a whole lot more info on his website www.MoonlightDanceCruises.com so check it out. It's always best to plan for these as far in advance as possible ... besides, that gives you something to look forward to for a longer time!

Full details on these and other events are below. The full up-to-date dance calendar is at www.SeattleDanceInfo.com.


Ron's Song of the Week:
The New Fever Waltz by Elton John from the 2013 album The Diving Board.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SBwkHPSrvU

"And the ballroom opened up to us
And the dancers danced on through."

I'll be sure to play this song Saturday night along with a couple other Elton John Waltzes and lots of his classic hits plus a variety of other music.

See you at the Hayloft! -- Ron Bolin
