There are two events for dancing this Sunday at d’Esterre House in Comox.
Former participants asked for an encore, so Brain Boosters is bringing back Eric Lam to informally coach a small group of dancers on Latin style, technique, movement, etc., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
He’ll show easy rumba/ cha-cha steps and how to dance them with fun, grace and great form. After all, “It’s not how many (or few) steps you do — it’s how good you look and feel which gives you dancing pleasure.”
A lucky small group of four to 14 learners will get semi-private coaching.
No partner? No problem! Partner up with same or opposite sex.
The fee for this informal event is only $10 each, and if you’d like to, bring a potluck lunch to share before coming to the bigger dance from 2-5 p.m. that day.
Pre-register with Arabella at 250-941-8885 or email@example.com.
In the second event, kick up your heels for Brain Boosters‘ last dance of the Summer with “Jive” or “Beginner Samba” (or parts of both) from 2-3 p.m. on Sun., Aug. 21 at d’Esterre House. There’s great dance music of foxtrot, waltz, cha-cha, rumba, jive, samba etc. until 5 p.m. Accredited instructor and DJ is Irek Paykart, with wife Zofia.
Pre-register for the workshop and dance — it’s $10 for guests or $8 for NBDS or Comox Seniors Association members. The fee at the door is $12. It’s one dollar less if you only come to the dance from 3-5 p.m., and refreshments are included. Pick up tickets at 1801 Beaufort Ave. in Comox Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. or pre-register with Arabella at 250-941-8885 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Paykarts are award-winning dancers who met 40 years ago, and now are still dancing and teaching in Campbell River.
Every Friday from Sept. 16, they volunteer their time to help dancers practise their skills at the Sportsplex from 7-8:30 p.m. Starting Sept. 19, they will be teaching Introduction to Ballroom and Latin dance at d’Esterre House from 3-4:15 p.m. and Beyond Beginner Waltz from 4:15-5:30 p.m. For information on dance lessons and other Brain Booster activities, e-mail email@example.com
