West Coast Swing
From Sarah Peller:
An open group of people from all dance backgrounds (from none to tons!). We get together every week to play and experiment with Fusion partner dancing. We start each dance with some type of movement lesson, from salsa to modern dance to acro-fusion. (Check our calendar for the upcoming classes) Then we all practice, experiment, play and learn from each other during the open dance.
Rachael Jorgensen & Barry Burnett have performed together for the last three years both as a duo and as the four-piece band that will be performing for this dance. The band is rounded-out by an outstanding rhythm section including Tom Svornich on drums and Paul Stehr-Green on bass.
Known for both their high-energy and consummate professionalism, The Blues Counselors keep the dancing crowd on its feet the entire evening. The ensemble of six seasoned Pacific Northwest musicians features Rick Allyn on vocals and guitar and Teresa Fraser also doing vocals and contributing percussion.
Tuesday Ballroom Dance Classes
A cadre of dance teachers will continue ballroom lessons this season. They are: Carol Hathaway, Michael Clemens, Darlene Clemens and Steve Johnson. Derek and Pam (teachers emeritus) will be “sometimes available” – at their convenience” – to teach both the teachers and the students. If possible, we will also include guest teachers.
