Everyone is welcome for food, fun, multicultural dance and music. Meet new people, gather with neighbors and friends to share food and learn some new dances. The event is free of charge, but please bring a potluck dish to share. More info: Constance Perenyi 206-801-2253.

World Dance Party (WDP) is a fun party designed to get neighbors to interact and to celebrate culture and diversity. Everyone from all backgrounds and ages is welcome. It’s a potluck. Several multicultural dances are taught by volunteer instructors in 20-minute mini-lessons, then everyone dances. That’s it. There’s no other agenda. No lectures. Just food and dancing and community.

The idea for the event surfaced at an Aging Your Way Gathering, organized by Senior Services in Seattle. The gathering was part of a project designed to capture people’s input on an ideal community for everyone to grow old in, as well as inspire citizens to actions to improve their neighborhoods.

One theme that arose was the lack of connections between elders and young people, and between neighbors of different ethnicities. One idea that came up was a fun multicultural dance and potluck.

Several events have been held in Shoreline to date.
