It is our joy to teach dance creatively and playfully so our students come to know the sheer joy, laughter and fun of dancing together. Dance for Joy! gives dance lessons in Waltz, Swing, Zydeco and Blues. We are committed to bringing the delight of partner dance to Seattle through group dance classes, private dance lessons, dance workshops and dance events.
Mini-session start the week of January 5th; classes start the week of January 19th. For our latest dance classes in beginning and advanced East Coast Swing, Waltz, and Blues, go to our Classes page.
We are also experimenting with a new Registration page. We'd appreciate it if you let us know if it's easier to work with than the old one.

“This is my second Swing I and I'm taking Swing 2 right after. TIRED after 2 hours but I love it. I plan on taking Waltz next. You are a great organization, and wonderful teachers! I have a couple friends taking Swing I with me this time, both have taken other classes, and both think you are so much better than their previous experiences. I'm very glad I found you!” — Susan Larson
“Dear Lilli Ann,
We are both enjoying the classes. We have taken a few other dance classes in past years, and we appreciate the things we have received in our other classes, but there is no doubt in our minds that your classes are the best organized, best taught and most enjoyable we have experienced. Thanks.” — Scott Henrickson
“Lilli Ann and Claire are an enthusiastic and professional team. Their workshops have something for everybody — a clear introduction to the basics for the beginners, while at the same time challenging the more advanced dancers. Cross-step Waltz is a gorgeous dance, and they do a fabulous job of teaching it.” — Marion Newvelant, Random Waltz, Portland, OR.
