WEEKEND: Lustrous locks, faux fur theme for Saturday Hair Ball in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Big hair, brightly colored locks, wigs, bad toupees: All of these are wanted at the Elks Naval Lodge on Saturday night.

So are animal prints and faux furs, as in leopard, zebra, foxy, you get the idea.

This is the inaugural Hair Ball, hosted by ballroom-dance enthusiast Carol Hathaway on one of the Peninsula’s most spacious dance floors.

Hathaway will start the evening with a 6:45 p.m. foxtrot workshop, but the dancing will go far beyond that particular style, what with Maia Santell and House Blend to play from 7:30 p.m. till 10:30 at the Elks, 131 E. First St.

Admission to the Hair Ball is $15, or $10 for those who have studied dance with Hathaway, either at her Port Angeles studio or at the Sequim Prairie Grange Hall in recent months.

For information, visit the “Let’s Go Dancing Clallam County” page on Facebook, email Hathaway00@gmail.com or phone 360-460-3836.

Youth are welcome, Hathaway noted, though pets are not.

“Dress up as much as you like. Sparkles and tuxes welcome, or Sunday best,” the hostess added.

The RSVP deadline for dinner at the Elks on Saturday has passed, but dancers are welcome to bring finger snacks and desserts.

As for House Blend, “this group plays a wonderful mix . . . and Maia has great hair,” Hathaway said.

Santell and her band are well-known around Seattle and Tacoma for their swing, blues, jazz, Latin, R & B and big-band shows. Set lists travel from Duke Ellington, Patsy Cline, Etta James and Frank Sinatra to the Beatles and Wilson Pickett.

“Come enjoy a fun evening among friends,” said Hathaway.
