Family dance gets everyone movin’

There was a boot scootin’, movin’, groovin’ good time at the Cache Creek Community Hall!

You hear about dancing at night clubs or other places for adults only, but it’s a rarity to enjoy a good ‘ol community family dance. Last Saturday evening however, we did just that. Families enjoyed a country dance hosted by the Senior’s Fit for Life program and DJ by Tom Moe of Rolling Thunder Sound & Studio. Children, teens and adults danced all evening long, whether they were showing off their country style or learning a new line dance, there was a boot scootin’, movin’, groovin’ good time at the Cache Creek Community Hall!

What is it about a family dance that is so much fun? Maybe a better question is what isn’t there that’s fun? Of course dancing is fun to learn, move and groove, but there is so much more. I watched children giggling while chasing the coloured lights that danced around the floor, teens learning new steps and couples remembering the dances of years gone by. Of course there is the music too and what’s not to like about all those country greats with the foot tappin’ easy to pick up beats? Finally, making the evening complete is enjoying it with family, friends and meeting new friends too. Yee-Haw!
