The countdown is on — Slocan Lake Dance Camp is set for July 25 through 28 in New Denver.

Choose from 31 daytime workshops in Latin, including Argentine Tango, Smooth, Swing and country dance styles. Two evening classes offer instruction for working folks and a dance on Thursday night, Friday night (infamous Polka dot party) and Saturday’s dine and dance provide a chance to show off your new moves.

Now in its ninth year, the dance camp brings folks from around the region as well as others from further afield together on the dance floor. It’s a fun opportunity to visit this pristine region too, take a little hike, visit the beach and relax as well as the chance to hone your dance skills.

Highlighting this year’s dance camp is Ari Levitt, an international instructor from Washington State. Levitt brings his own unique fusion style to the floor. Learn improv from a master: blend tango moves with swing or blues style for bigger fun.

So dig out your camping gear, load up the cooler, and locate your twirliest skirt and dance shoes and come on to New Denver and meet some new friends. Each dance has mixer dances designed for this purpose along with door prizes and novelty dances just to get us all moving.

Singles are welcome and advance registration is encouraged. Visit slocanlakedancecamp.ca for full registration details. If you have questions please call 250-358-2448.
