"Gator Boy" Sean Donovan DJs a Night of Great Dance Music for the Olympic Peninsula Dance Club at the Port Townsend Elks December 19th

Location: 
Elks Lodge #317
555 Otto Street
Port Townsend, WA 98368

Seattle's own "Gator Boy" Sean Donovan brings his incredible energy and thoroughly danceable library of music to the Port Townsend Elks on December 19th.  The dancing starts at 8:00pm.

Sean DonovanSean is a longtime dance instructor (solo and for Northwest Dance Network), DJ, zydeco enthusiast and apostle for the power of dance.  You may have heard his show on 91.3, KBCS in Seattle.  He will be playing a stew of swing, waltz, cha-cha, blues, nightclub 2-step, and west coast swing flavored with a little spice: perhaps some zydeco, salsa, a samba.  He knows dancers and will spin tunes that you won't want to sit out.

A free (with admission) workshop on Whiskey River Jitterbug will be offered by Sean at 7:00 p.m.  Sean describes Whiskey River as a Louisiana Cajun dance similar to double-time swing, only with more hips and footwork.   Experienced dancers are encouraged to come help beginners. Couples and singles are welcome. No partner or registration is necessary.

This is a smoke-free and scent-free dance open to all ages.

Admission: $10.
