Because camp was an out-and-out hit with last year's attendees, and we expect this year's three-day dance party to sell out. 

Uwe Hessinger & Colleen Suzanne
The Elegance of the Waltz

colleen & uwe instructorsUwe and Colleen love waltz, enjoy teaching waltz, and are very excited to share their favorite waltz moves at Seabeck. Uwe is in his fourteen's year of teaching dance and Colleen in her fifth year. Both Uwe and Colleen dance every week in Portland to keep their creation of dance moves very workable for the social dance floor. Their classes draw throngs of students and the pair has made a big impact on Portland's waltz community. They promise fun classes for Seabeck campers, or, in Uwe’s words, “we promise beautiful moves for your waltz.”

Here’s a quick testimony from Nancy Matela, one of the dancers who has helped build Portland into a thriving and wonderful dance town: "Uwe and Colleen's teachings have elevated the waltz community here to a whole other level of grace and style - far from where we were when they started teaching their regular classes in Portland a few years ago. They model an elegance and smoothness that is wonderful to behold."
