Country Dance Events in the Northwest
What is a dance event and where can I find one to attend?
A dance event is usually an event that will hold workshops as well as evening dances. For purposes on this page, I will profile events usually in the Northwest.
February - Sweetheart Jamboree
February 15-17, 2013
Despite the name, this dance event is not just for couples. Singles will have fun at this laid-back event. The event starts on a Friday and continues on until Sunday. Workshops are held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There are dances Friday and Saturday night, with Saturday night having a dinner show. Three rooms to dance in: a country room, a swing room and a line dance room. On Sunday - they do a raffle for a quilt. This is done each year. In 2006, I was a proud winner of the quilt. Also, each year there is a different theme. Come and have fun with us!
This event will be held at the Bellvue Hilton, Bellevue, WA.Char Alexander & Alan Provencher
