Rockin Horse Dance Barn installs Solar Panels
After several years of waiting for the prices to drop and saving up the money the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn installs solar panels. Yes a new 9.9 kW Photovoltaic Solar Panel System. The first system was installed in 2009 with only 3.2 kW. So now the two systems combined will generate four times what the first one did.
The amount of electricity generated will only cover approximately half of the electricity needed/used but it’s a start and if the costs continue to drop maybe in the future another system will be added to be 100% self sufficient for electricity.
was a regular attendee of our Friday night dances for years. He was loved by all that knew him. He danced with all the women at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn when he was here. His favorite dance was the Foxtrot. He would request one or two every week.
Getting My Groove
Whether attending a wedding, nightclub or just a social gathering, dancing is sure to be one of the main forms of entertainment. For many people, however, dancing is a cause for inhibition, often resulting in “wallflowers.” Admittedly, up until recently I was one of those people who looked at the dance floor with disdain from my lonely perch against the wall. Some day I hope to be getting my groove on the dance floor.
Having never even attempted to dance, I decided that the best option for overcoming my fears was to enroll in some Renton dance lessons. During the first few dance classes, I was all over my partner’s feet, and I considered throwing in the towel. With a little persistence however, I gradually found my stride and now I am quite adept on the dance floor.

There are very few places to go Country dancing in Seattle anymore. Country dancing slowed down after its hayday during the 1990s but has been steadily on the rise again. In the late 1980s through the 1990s there were many Country bars and clubs in the area like the Riverside (Tukwila) , Little Red Hen (Seattle), Parkers (North Seattle), McCabe’s (Tacoma), Club Broadway (Everett), Jerry Andel’s (Everett & Auburn) and the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn (Renton).
The Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn is by far the biggest one left. One thing that sets the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn apart from the other places to go dancing is there is no alcohol. It is a place to just dance and have a good time. With 4,000 sq. ft. it is the largest hardwood dance floor for any kind of dancing in the Seattle area.
If you live in Seattle or are visiting Seattle this is a club you really should put on your list of places to go for Country Dancing. The best night for country dancing is Friday night. There are dance lessons every night and even during the day.
