Free Introduction!

Open to all – bring a friend

Want more laughter in your life?
Looking for a new interest and more social connection?
Want to move your body and keep your mind sharp?

Then come try square dancing!
This is not the square dancing you may expect or remember: dress is casual, music is contemporary, we laugh a lot, and it’s great exercise.

Singles and couples are welcome. Absolutely no experience (or rhythm) is necessary. Knowing your right from left is helpful, but not required.

Thursday January 4th from 7:00 to 9:00PM (Since we build skills over the evening, it really helps if you come a few a minutes early)
St. Andrew’s Church near Green Lake.
111 NE 80th St, Seattle, WA 98115 (Enter on 1st Ave NE)

New Years Day Dance

Shake off 2017 and come on out and dance with your friends at Puddletown to welcome in 2018 on a high note!  Monday January 1, 2018 at St. Andrews.

  • 1pm – 3pm: Mainstream & Plus with Andy Garboden
  • 3pm – 5pm: Advanced and Challenge with Gary Monday

Free for current Puddletown members (else only $5 per session)

Plus Winter Camps

  • January 6 with Anne Uebelacker
  • February 17 with Gary Monday

These camps are for current Plus dancers. The camps will focus on call definitions and unusual starting points. The fee will depend on the number of enrollees (we have to cover costs), but we’re trying for no more than $35/person per camp. Come dance with us at either camp, or do them both! – the more the merrier.  Contact Karen Deyerle, kldinseattle@yahoo.com. Angels will be needed.

At St. Andrew’s, 9 AM – 3 PM

Advanced Class

Puddletown is offering Advanced Program lessons with Anne Uebelacker. Anne is a GREAT teacher, and this is a pretty amazing opportunity.

Tuesday nights, 7-9pm – Starting January 9
$10/class.
Classes will be held at the Welcome Table Christian Church, on Beacon Hill (close to the light rail station.)

The first month or so will focus on dance-by-definition Plus and will be a good opportunity for all experienced Plus dancers (even if you don’t plan to take the Advanced class.)

Then the actual Advanced program classes are expected to take around 40 weeks.

Cost is $10 per class, but we are asking all participants to commit to the first month (of DBD) up front. (If cost is a problem, talk to us about alternatives.)
