The funds raised at this dance go to the Roy Hamlyn Memorial Foundation which was set up to honour Roy, to support social dancing in Vancouver. If you can volunteer an hour or two at the dance, please let me know.

While you're there you can also buy an Entertainment 2002 book. Cost is $46, please make cheques payable to DanceSport BC.

UBC Dance Club has begun their annual membership registration. In my opinion, this is Vancouver's best place to learn how to ballroom dance. The 16-week course covering 6 to 10 dances (depending on level) gives a solid foundation in both technique and knowledge of steps. Membership includes practice sessions, encouraging dancers to practice what they have learned each week, before returning to class to add to their repetoire. Instructors are among the best. Penny Bedeaux is excellent for beginners. And, lastly, cost is probably the least expensive you can find anywhere in the Lower Mainland.

You don't have to be a student to enrol. However, membership fills up very quickly, so hurry!
