Whether you are a seasoned dancer or a newbie, the 3rd annual Kootenay Dance Festival is a great place to learn and have fun! It’s all happening at the Bosun Hall in New Denver from July 6-8.
Organized by the Kootenay DanceBeat Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting partner dancing and growing a dance community. This dance club is focused in supporting dancers in their learning journey, improving health and wellness, creating a safe and inspiring space for dancers to grow, and develop confidence in themselves, encourage self-expression and personal development.
There will be lessons during the day and social dances in the evening to which everyone is welcome to participate. There’s a Live Band Dance on Saturday evening featuring Clint Swanson, Holly Hyatt & Jon Burden!
One of KDBS’s organizer’s, Maria Schuh, says “the point is to have fun and encourage beginners to not be intimidated. Singles will be partnered up, as best we can, and rotation of partners is encouraged”. This three day event is designed to be casual and not competitive at all. “It’s a place to connect and share our passion for dancing and get the endorphins going. There’s a power in connection physically and in non-verbal communication that comes with partner dancing”.
