Seattle Community Open Band Contra Dance

Follow us on Facebook

The monthly Seattle Open Band Contra Dance is on indefinite hiatus. We need a few new volunteers on the organizing team if future dances are going to happen. Please let us know that you'd like to help – contact Sean Bolton (sean <at>, 206-362-3858). For more info on helping with the Green Lake Dances, contact valerie.fiddle<at> The dates for the summer Green Lake Dances are set around the end of May, and will be on 3 midweek (Tuesday or Wednesday)nights, sometime between late June and early August.
We miss you! The last Green Lake Dances happened in Summer 2019. There are hopes of trying a contra dance musicians jam and/or dance in the summer of 2023.
Come to picnic, socialize, jam, anytime after 6 ("no host" - some people bring just their own dinner, some people bring things to share.)
Dance from approximately 7PM until darkness or exhaustion sets in.
North side of Green Lake, near the wading pool - The closest streets are Wallingford Ave N and East Green Lake Drive North.
(We will choose the lawn area that night - look around for people that look like dancers & musicians.)

Everyone is welcome to come dance, play in the band, or take a turn calling a dance!
Musicians, bring your own chair.

Rain will cancel or postpone the dance - check the facebook page for the latest information: Facebook
