Sunday Practice Moves Inside Sept 17

Posted by on 06 Sep 2017 | Tagged as: Practice

Sunday Practice moves inside to SHIFT Studio in Fremont on Sunday, Sept 17. We will be at SHIFT for the indoor season (until summer 2018). SHIFT is a great space with lots of light, a wonderful large floor, and a big garage door we can open when it’s warm outside. We had to commit to a date to move inside (no day-of-practice fussing about the weather), and we want to be consistent and reliable for folks who are new, so please come dance with us at SHIFT. http://shiftseattle.com/contact/   (3517 Stone Way N. Seattle, WA 98103). Please note: we rent the studio for this event, it is not run by SHIFT management. Please contact the usual Seattle Rueda folks if you have questions!
