Dance Town Saturday night

Dust off those dancing shoes, because there’s a dance this Saturday night at the Upper Courtenay Legion Hall.

Dust off those dancing shoes, because there’s a dance this Saturday night at the Upper Courtenay Legion Hall.

Dance Town is a wonderful social venue with a relaxed atmosphere where all the dancers mix and mingle with all genres of social dancers.

Keith and Holly Foraie of Steppin’ Out Dance Company host this monthly dance to encourage people to get out of the house, meet new people, socialize and find out just how much fun social dancing really is. But they warn everyone that it can become quite addicting.

Guest instructors John Kirkconnell and Heather Crowe from Vancouver will teach a class in West Coast swing. The first half hour is for the beginner dancer. Doors are open at 7 p.m. with the class starting at 7:30.

Then dance the night away to a great mix of dance music for all dance styles. Included with the dance ticket, is a snack buffet and a chance to win a great door prize. The dance starts at 8:30 and goes to midnight.

The cost for the lesson or dance is $10 or both for $15. Singles and couples are welcome.

The Foraies also provide dance classes that are always fun and social. They have been teaching dance for over 20 years and feel that a show-and-tell method never works. They teach with clarity and always break down the movements and steps so the new dancers can get it.

The next set of beginner classes in West Coast Swing will start Oct.  27 but pre-registration is required.

The Foraies also teach at the Bridge Lounge on Wednesday evenings. Everyone is welcome to just drop in.

The evening starts with a beginner lesson at 7:30, followed by moves for intermediate dancers and then dancing until 10.
