Slocan Lake Dance Camp returns to New Denver in late-July



Pack up the camper and your dance shoes and come on over to New Denver.

Kelowna Dance Instructor Sharon Sebo and her dance partner Bobby Engene practicing for a mini-performance of the steamy Argentine Tango at the Slocan Lake Dance Camp in New Denver.

Once again, New Denver will welcome dancers from around the region for the annual Slocan Lake Dance Camp from July 25 to 28.

This year the camp will have an instructor from south of the border: Ari Levitt is from the greater Seattle area and teaches nationally and internationally. He made the Kootenay connection while teaching some friendly Rossland dancers on a cruise last winter.

Levitt brings his unique fusion style with offerings such as Tango’d Up in Blues, Swing Fusion and Cross-Step Waltz. Local dancers are sure to find him warm, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

The Dance Camp, now in its ninth year, offers 31 daytime workshops, two evening classes and three evening dances. Dancers can choose only one or two workshops or attend all four days. Workshops are offered in most traditional styles, including East Coast Swing, Cha Cha and Waltz along with Country-Two Step and Argentine Tango.

Whether you are brand new to dance or a seasoned dancer, there is something for you.

Other instructors include Sharon Sebo of Tango Kelowna, Michael Wiebe of Calgary, Randy Tapp of Cranbrook and Lyle Clarke of Edmonton. Each brings their unique talents.

At the Friday night “polka dot party” and the Saturday “dine and dance,” several of the instructors will dance for our entertainment. Mixers, prizes and special refreshments will add to the fun.

So pack up the camper and your dance shoes and come on up to New Denver: buff up your dance style, reconnect with your dance friends and enjoy this pristine area.
