Update from Roberto August 9:

West Coast Swing Thursdays in Sequim.

Free workshops, dance, great DJ's, drinks, affordable prices and lots of fun at the Elks Lodge.(143 Port Williams Road)

Another Wow...Thursday at the Elks with a lot of newcomers attending the free workshops and dancers who came to celebrate Kathleen's Birthday. I am so happy to see that more and more people are learning west coast swing for it is a beautiful, body-friendly dance that I used to help my wife "Kookie" to recover from two consecutive back injuries. Now I have the pleasure to see her on the dance floor not only happily dancing, but training hard to become a professional dancer and, when the time is ready, a lovely, caring, community-oriented dance instructor. I am especially excited to send you this email for I am inviting you to celebrate Kookie's Birthday at the Elks this Thursday, August 11th. We will rock the Elks with lots of good energy, great workshops and dance, and a special cake and snacks that we will share all evening and after each workshop; Sonja Hickey from Sequim is promising great music for all of us, with some fun mixers and a nice electric slide part. We only need your presence, come party with us!

Thank you all of you who are spreading the word about our nice growing community of dancers, and for posting it on the Olympic Peninsula News. Please receive my appreciation and my reciprocity with a brand new 50% discount for single household couples offered until the end of this Summer. For the Fall season we will be adding a beginner only workshop and will make prices even more affordable for the entire community. Please help us introduce the "West Coast Swing Thursdays in Sequim" to more people so we can make all of this possible for the Fall season.

We are in Sequim to be at your service!

Dear Dancers and Friends,

We are happy to announce some great additions and small great adjustments to the Thursday dance that we are offering at our new venue. We will have Sonja Hickey from Port Angeles DJ'ing for us every other week. Sonja will be sharing the plates with me, and Janice Eklund from Port Towsnend will be welcoming you at the registrations desk and DJ'ing for us this week. It will mainly be a west coast swing evening with 80% new and traditional music for all kinds of swing dancing, and 20% other dances (requests are always welcome!). The workshops will all be drop-in with a new dance topic each month. In July we will work on syncopations and arm styling, with a special body roll treat for this coming Thursday. We have adjusted the prices for we want you to come have fun with us every Thursday. The new one full hour workshops and dance price will only be $12; two workshops and dance $20; dance only $5. This is the best deal ever for the quality of education and brand new dance content, a premier dance venue with supreme, knees-friendly dance floor, great acoustics, lots of free parking and the possibility to dance with the most experienced social dancers and several social dance instructors in the Peninsula. Last but not least, in our efforts to promote partner dancing, we added a newcomers west coast swing class that is absolutely free. We hope you will help us spread the word and encourage your family, friends and co-workers to attend. Please read the new workshop descriptions below and heads-up previews for the coming weeks. Drop us a line should you have questions, or to reserve a private lesson.

We are here to be at your service,
