Places for Seniors to Ballroom Dance
Got an urge to dance? Here are a number of locations in the Puget Sound area where seniors can go to dance. There is something every day of the week! Betty's List.
A little rusty or interested in learning some new steps or dances. Betty McLain teaches dancing for seniors at a number of Seattle area locations. Highly recommended by this Webmaster--I'm one of her students! Check her web site for more information: BettysDance

By Jenny Joseph
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn´t go, and doesn´t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandles, and say we´ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I´m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people´s gardens
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
If you know that Paul McCartney was in another band before Wings, then we have a place for you here at BBHQ.
