Updated January 14, 2023
Our team is confirmed for the Dance-O-Rama in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, January 18 – 22 and we wish them well! We will be having a “Cabo in Coquitlam Party that week (on Friday, January 13 at 9:00pm). Hopefully we will have a “Live from Cabo” section from our team, there, if time zone difference allows.
Greg Marchand is continuing to host his local dances for everyone to attend. The next one is on January 23, 2023. There are details on the Ballroom Nights website. There is also a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by the studio front door that someone has started for anyone who might want to attend.
The Guest Party is on January 25, a Wednesday evening event starting at 7:00pm. Bring in anyone you think might be interested to see the studio – there are many New Years’ resolutioners out there who sometimes need that excuse to get started 🙂 There will be a meet-n-greet, then a guest lesson to get everyone moving, and a dance party to follow until about 8pm.
Registrations will be starting for the Ballroom Blitz the week of January 24. Ballroom Blitz is a fun, reserved seat, ticketed, in-studio event on Saturday, March 4 starting at 1:oopm. Guests are encouraged 🙂
Dates for many of our next year’s events have been set – Ballroom Blitz and Spotlight Ball in the studio, the Showcase and Medal Ball with our local studios participating. Spring FESTIVAL and visiting coaches are still to be added. Check the Upcoming Events page for available dates. Some of these are still in the planning stages, so, if you have any requests, make sure to let them be known and we can consider adding some more cool ideas that you might have.
The Hangover Party was a fun way to start the year – Friday, January 6, where we utilized a bit of dance therapy to help us in our recovery from the Christmas party season. 🙂
FESTIVAL for fall2022/winter2023 has wrapped up! Check out the photos from the theme parties and the Dinner Dance. What a creative bunch we have!
Christmas Party 2022 was an absolute hoot 😉 It’s great to be back to the potluck-dance-party-santa-photo madness that we love. Check out the photos online.
Our donation to the Share Food Bank for the Tri-Cities has been taken in and we donated 519 pounds of food and a few hundred dollars for them to buy more 🙂 Thank you, everyone, who participated by bringing in some food and other donations for them.
After a week-long Halloweeek! Friday, October 28, 2022 was the the studio’s main Halloween party starting at 9:00pm. We drew for a fun prize on Saturday, October 29 and our big winner was Michelle Pielak.
Medal Ball 2022 was held on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel in downtown Vancouver, a great combined event with Coquitlam, White Rock, Vancouver and, also, Victoria attending this year! Photos will be added on studio photos albums page.
