Canceled: 6/29 Alki Beach Casino on Cardboard Dance

Sorry amigos, but the 6/29 Alki Beach dance is canceled due to the cool weather.

Let’s try again next Friday July 6.

Canceled: 6/22 Alki Beach Casino on Cardboard

Posted by on 22 Jun 2018 | Tagged as: Alki Beach: Casino on Cardboard

Alki Beach dance is canceled tonight 6/22

Unfortunately it is too cool and cloudy today to draw much of a crowd to dance in the sea breeze tonight. Let’s hope the warm summer weather comes back in time for next week’s dance on 6/29.

Special thanks to Reinier and Daniela for lending the use of their SUV and Block Rocker for last week’s dance. And also thanks to everyone who helped set up and clean up last week as well!

Alki Beach Cuban Salsa (Casino) Dancing on Cardboard 6/15

We’re overdue to start the summer beach dance party season.

Setup volunteers
DJ using any audio device with a 1/8″ headphone jack!

2501 Alki Ave SW Seattle, WA 98116
You’ll find the dance floor right on the sandy beach across the street from Duke’s Chowder House and Blue Moon Burgers near 58th Ave SW.

Friday, June 15, 2018
Set up by volunteers from 5:30-7 PM. Music and dancing from 7-10:00 PM.

Dances take place every Friday night all summer as long as it’s dry, at least through Labor Day weekend in September.

Sunglasses, sunscreen, shoes you can get dirty, and maybe a jacket for sundown are great ideas. Optionally bring food or drinks to share. Alcohol is not allowed at the public beach, but friends and passersby are always welcome.

**Leave a comment with dates you can volunteer to; DJ, help set up, pack up, or transport the dance floor.
