Posted by on 19 May 2011 | Tagged as: Events, Social

Some of you may not have heard that Selenas is moving to Shoreline at the end of the month, so this week is the last event at the Wallingford location. It’s been a great run for David and us and its a shame that it is being disrupted now that the attendance is good and the dance floor expansive ;-).

Let’s all come out on Saturday and Party one last time on that dance floor !!!

I am sure David will let us know of his plans moving forward.

Flash Alert: duane’s Wrenn’s Workshop on Wednesday, May 4th

Posted by on 03 May 2011 | Tagged as: Instruction

Greetings Casineros,
I have a wonderful surprise for you. Due to low attendance on the “Instructor’s Workshop” on Wednesday, we are changing the topic to be a continuation of the workshop on Monday (Original Rueda Moves for Seattle – transitions and patterns designed for Seattle will be learned). And, Guess what? It’s only going to be $5 for two and a half hours with duane!! Yes, five dollars at the door!! We had a blast tonight working on reshaping how we move in the rueda. It will be about footwork to basic rueda moves and much much more. My vacilela, dile que no, coca cola and enchufla are even that much more polished after his Monday class. I highly recommend all levels to come try this workshop on Wednesday.  Hope to see you all there. The workshop is located at the ARC Dance Academy. Hope to see you there!  Una Bulla!
