HOME LOCATION SCHEDULE RATES CHILDCARE ABOUT US


WHO ARE WE?

Em Frothingham and Ram Hariharan opened Harmony Ballroom in 2011 because they couldn't find a place in Bellevue to spend the evening dancing, especially with a small child in tow. They love the idea of an old-fashioned dance hall where everyone can go at night to meet friends and family, small children and elders, the whole neighborhood.

To contact Em, call #425-453-7436, or email info@harmonyballroom.com.
