Just landed in #Seattle for a performance tonight with the #SpanishHarlemOrchestra at the #CenturyBallroom . Also very excited to see my brother and his family! ❤🎤🔥 #LicenseToLove

When you're extremely social and you LOVE to dance you make your friends learn how to salsa dance!!! We are beginners, but we got out there and danced our booties off!!! 😍😍😍#salsa #dance #centuryballroom #seattle #saturday

ATP is really grateful to have this guy as our director. @joshtscribner has a vision for the future of tap dance and he works consistently to bring it to fruition through his company. He's also, you know, a pretty good choreographer, dancer, performer, etc 😄 #tapdance #seattledance #alchemytapproject #centuryballroom

Tried swing dancing for the first time. Didnt know what i was doing 80% of the time, but it was still a lot of fun 😅 #swingdance #noob #pleasedontjudgeme #🙈 #centuryballroom

#seattlesmallbiz you should support: The Century Ballroom! Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, #TheCentury is on the 2nd floor of the 1908 OddFellows temple on Pine, w/ 2 awesome spaces for classes & dance events w/ live bands - from #swing to #salsa to #kizomba. Owner & instructor Hallie Kuperman opened Century in 1997 & wanted to create a safe space for the #CapitolHill community, at first very focused on #queer-only classes. She's also the founder of Swing Girls, which teaches the #LGBTQ community how to swing dance. Since then she's broadened Century's community but said, "It’s still important to me to have the gay community find this place...What I hear over & over is the asset that Century is to the community...I believe dance as being healing for people-in the bigger picture I feel we’re creating a safe place.” Century has hosted many arts & community meetings & partnered w/ Plymouth Housing for 8 years to throw a dance competition, raising millions of dollars to house the homeless. Developer Ted Schroth acquired the #Oddfellows building for $8.5M in 2007, and the artists & tenants were forced out by rent increases of over 300%.
The Ballroom is the only arts org to remain in the 100-year-old space. Velocity Dance, Freehold Theatre, Reel Grrls, Annex Theatre & #Seattle Mime Theatre all were forced to leave. Then in 2013 the WA Dept of Revenue smacked a number of Seattle event spaces with a “dance tax” of over $92K. Supporters of Century were able to fundraise almost $100K & successfully advocated to do away w/ the tax that would have destroyed Century & other venues. Recently, Las Vegas-based developer, #MidbyCompanies, which develops commercial properties & housing including Seattle’s Escala condo tower, may purchase the building at $30M - again raising concerns about how the sale could push rent even higher & endanger the future of the Ballroom. To celebrate its 20th, @centuryballroom will have a series of special events & performances throughout February. #centuryballroom #smallbusinesssaturday #thisplacematters #displacement #gentrification #LGBTQseattle #supportlocal #vanishingseattle #vivaseattle.

Happy Birthday Ms. Hayes. You've got a beautiful voice and good friends. I enjoyed meeting them. Sorry about chopping off the cello. (Inside joke. A prominent local fiddler helped me realize that it is actually a standup bass. Semantics I say. It's all just a Starbucksian play on the sizing of a violin, right? There's no such thing as a live music blacklist, is there?)
