Who Can come?

This is a dance for dancers of all ages, novice to professional. We promote a fun, inclusive atmosphere.
Median age range is 45-65, but we have dancers from 20-85
 
Singles
 This is NOT a "couples" dance. All singles are welcome.
Male dancers are always in demand, but remember this is Ballroom/Latin/Swing/Country dancing, not freestyle dancingLadies are always welcome, but I would add this:

1 - This is the new age - if you want to dance - ASK someone. I've gotten a lot of emails saying essentially:
"I'd love to come out but I don't expect to ask men to dance, and I just don't want to sit all night bored"
My response is "This isn't a dance cruise, we don't hire dance hosts"
2 - We love beginners, but there is an expectation that:

- If you LOVE dancing, you'll have taken lessons (as we have)
- NO MAN is born knowing how to lead:
- and only a handful of ladies have natural abilities to follow without taking lessons

If you've taken lessons in a variety of dances the mans job to lead is immeasurably easier -
and more FUN
Otherwise we're just pushing you around the floor counting down for the song to end.

THE MUSIC & Interactive DJ

My background - I have my Grade 10 Conservatory of Music in Piano.   I played as a professional musician for over 15 years playing keyboards, guitar and bass.   I have an EXTENSIVE music collection spanning over 70 years of music.  I constantly listen for new and interesting music.  Music You'll LOVE to dance to!As a DJ I entertain my crowd and make your visit as fun and interesting as possible.  EVERY dance my dancers come up to me and thank Bertha and I for these dances and many tell me how much they LOVED the music - or they send me emails telling me how much fun they had!
 

- Generally from 8-10pm the music is new, innovative and interesting

- From 10-11:15 we play great music including old favourites and take requests which we can play as the NEXT song!

This is not tired old 50's/60's ballroom music played at other dances


This is FUN music

- We play several really FUN line dances each dance. You don't have to join in, but can dance as you want
 
Floor
Large well maintained wooden floor 34' x 75' in size for most dances and when I rent the whole room 34' x 100' in size. When we use the whole floor we have the largest dance floor in the lower mainland
 
Chandelier
In Dec 2006 we purchased and mounted a beautiful chandelier for our dances
