Mike Bello Turns 75 and throws a nice party at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn on December 3, 2016. In attendance were a few of his friends and family.

There was dinner, music and dancing. Mike danced with all the ladies for his birthday dance including his daughter-in-law Michelle and one of his grand-daughters Maddy. His sons Mike and Marc brought their wives Angie and Michelle up from California and Nevada. It was a great evening and Jimmi and Dave Serfling presented Mike with a custom silver belt buckle with the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn logo on it.

Halloween Dance 2016

Halloween Dance 2016

halloween dance 2016 jeanneOur Halloween Dance 2016 was on October 28th. It was the Friday night before Halloween.

All through the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn it was eerily dark, when gradually there was a trickle of ghouls and beasts and people with missing parts.

The numbers increased and the monsters varied still more, and soon there was a line at the front desk and out the front door.

We did what we could and taught them to dance, and some looked great if but just at a glance.

There was food and treats for everyone there, it was hard to look at the costumes and not stare.

As the dancing progressed and the costumed guests got hot, we cooled it down and did the Foxtrot.

Although some dancers were new and some dancers were not, it didn’t stop them from giving it their best shot.

We had a costume parade to get a good look, at all the great costumes and wondered at how long it must have took.

So if you are wondering if next year you should attend, well by all means and of course because this annual event will never end.

Seattle Line Dance Instructions

Seattle Line Dance Instructions

Having never tried line dancing before, my roommate and I sought out some Seattle Line Dance Instructions recently. The concept may be easy, but even in the beginner dances we found ourselves lost at moments. Now that we have a few classes under our belts though, I think that we are ready to go out and Line Dance at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn in Renton, WA.

Many people think that line dancing is only done to Country or Western music, but that is simply not the case. Line dancing is choreographed dance steps that people do while standing in lines and can be performed to a variety of music—from Top 40 to classical. Due to the nature of line dancing, you don’t need a partner and it is a great way to meet new people.

Unlike most of the studios we spotlight, The Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn in Renton, Washington, is an adult Social Dance Studio. They offer dance lessons in a variety of Ballroom, Country, Latin and Swing Dances as well as Line Dances. During the week there are lessons every night and some in the daytime. Friday nights provide a chance to have fun and dance. The night starts off with a dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m. to get things warmed up. Then from 8 to 11 p.m., you can dance to a variety of music that works with all the types of dance taught during the week.

Rockin Horse Dance Barn installs Solar Panels

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.

Getting My Groove

Getting My Groove

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.
