A new ballroom dance program started Wednesday, Feb. 15 at The McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) in Parksville.

There were only a few couples on the dance floor for the first session, but its expected there will be more dancers next week for the afternoon tea dance.  With Dave Klinger on piano and dance king Bill Cave on trumpet, dancers learned a few basic steps from dance coach Al Stacey as the duo provided the music from a by-gone era.

The program which involves dancing to live music is new to the MAC and is currently being offered for four consecutive weeks. Stacey provides tips on how to look good on the dance floor and beginners are welcome.

There are only a limited number of spaces open and each session is $10 per person.

If the classes become popular they may be expanded upon and perhaps evening programs will be offered.  For registration and enquiries, call the MAC office at 248-8185.
