Last Tuesday Waltz Jam
Waltz Jam: A chance to get together and play waltzes (and some other music). It’s the last Tuesday of every month, in conjunction with the Tuesday Night Waltz: same place (Dance With Joy Studios (7981 SE 17th Ave)), same time (doors open 7:30), same $5 (money jar up front). A friendly group - everyone is very welcome.
Or dance! Authentic live music (not that polished recorded stuff).
Grownup in charge: Marion
Last one in this format: April 29th. After that, we will probably switch to an all-music-no-dancing format
