  • Camp Jitterbug
    Since 2000, Camp Jitterbug has grown from an intimate soiree with only about 100 students to a leading force in the swing-dancing world. It now occupies spaces throughout Seattle, inviting swing bands to play non-stop for four days as a multitude of dancers hone their skills in workshops and evening dance sessions. These workshops cater to specific skill levels, combining expert instruction with live music for a three-day learning experience. Evening dance festivities then begin around 8:30 p.m. and go until the last horn falls silent at around 5 a.m., giving dancers eight-and-a-half hours to put their newfound skills to the test. The next day, the organizers invite dancers back to do it all again, encouraging them to allow the joy of dance to overshadow any lingering exhaustion or soreness from the day before. Meanwhile, the dancers of Jump Session Show punctuate the weekend with performances and demonstrations. The rug-cutters wow crowds with intricate, precisely timed dance moves, just like desperate presidential candidates during their final debate.

  • The Washington Dance Club
    Since 1987, the national championship dancers at Washington Dance Club have been steadily whittling away at an excess of left feet with their social and competitive dance classes. Students cut rugs of all stripes in the historic Avalon Ballroom, twirling through ballroom, Latin, and swing sessions atop the 1930s ballroom's 3,000-square-foot sprung-maple dance floor. The team of instructors work with beginners, professionals, and top-hat wearing skeletons looking to revamp their image in private and group lessons, workshops, and weekly dance parties.

  • Salsa N Seattle
    As part of nationally performing salsa team Somos el Son, Salsa N' Seattle Dance Studio instructors Victor Chavez and Julia Krasnov spin, step, and shimmy so quickly that videos of their performances almost seem to have been sped up. Though their fancy footwork may appear impossible for mere mortals to replicate, they impart their kinetic talents onto Salsa N' Seattle's team of teachers who specialize in disciplines of jazz, ballet, and contemporary dance. During classes, these instructors breakdown movements into easy-to-follow steps that pay off in the first class, with moves that can be instantly transported to club floors, social events, and slow-moving grocery lines. The studio also pulses with the beats of other excitement-driven styles, from the workout parties of Zumba to the swagger of hip-hop.
