Dave Serfling has been teaching Ballroom, Country, Swing, Latin and Line Dancing since 1988. He has taught thousands of people all over Seattle and the Puget Sound Area at many of the Parks Departments and Colleges from Enumclaw to Bellingham. He also performs as a Professional DJ and MC at Wedding receptions, Birthday and Company parties with the added niche of offering dance lessons to the guests as part of the event's entertainment.
Dave started dancing at Discos and Nightclubs in the 1970s. Overtime he always envisioned himself owning his own nightclub or dance club facility. After learning to Partner Dance and Line Dance he started the search for a location to make this dream come true.
Along comes a place called Hagen’s Barn, a square dance hall in Renton. The timing was right, the widow of the original owner was ready to sell. So, in 1998 Dave sold his house, packed up his wife and two kids, bought the Barn (now the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn) and built his house next door.
Dave DJs the music EVERY Friday night for the Friday Night Dances. He teaches a one-hour dance lesson before the dances start. During the week Dave teaches a plethora of dance classes, in every style, weaving humor into the lessons to help put the students at ease. These classes are popular for many reasons. They are great exercise (cardio and aerobic), help with balance, memory retention and socializing (great way to meet others with similar interests).
Dave remarried in 2008. His new wife Jimmi enhanced his vision of the Barn with her positive energy and love of dance.
In addition to dancing, Dave loves to use his carpentry skills and along with Jimmi’s hard work and green thumb they are continually updating the building and landscaping to make the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn a Northwest premier dance venue and event rental hall.
Cindy teaches a variety of dances and believes in the power of dance to positively affect both the mind and body. She finds great joy in providing a fun, safe environment where her students can also experience the freedom that dance has to offer.
