"Seattle Sampler" Schedule


“Seattle Sampler” Dine & Dance Calendar

June 11-14, 2018



Below, you will find a list of some of the many social partner dance venue options that are available to you this week to go out and sample.  This list is by no means comprehensive, but does cover those social-partnered dance venues that have good local reputations for being friendly to visiting dancers, and which emphasize the fun, social aspects of partnered dance (as opposed to focussing on performance or competition)


Each day we also encourage you to explore some of the wonderful sites and resources that are available to you for fun and play in the region.  CLICK HERE to see a list of recommendations of things to do in & around Seattle.  Again, this list is in no way comprehensive, but is simply those places or activities recommended by members of the Seattle dance community that they think would be enjoyed by anyone from out of town.


Each evening, Monday through Thursday, after you’ve spent your day exploring, we will plan on meeting as a group for dinner to share our stories and to plan for the dancing to come that evening.  The dinner locations and times are still being decided and will be posted below soon
