Dance lessons for youth

Why should adults have all the fun? Kids can learn to dance too.

Why should adults have all the fun? Kids can learn to dance too.

The Alberta Pattern Dancers are issuing a call to see whether young people want to learn to two-step, fox-trot, waltz, or schottische. Classes can be geared to anyone between the ages of eight and 16, either after school, evenings, or on Sunday afternoons.

Alberta Pattern Dance member Eileen Cole said her group has had great success teaching students to dance at West Park and Oriole Park schools.

After one mandatory program was delivered to 60 students, 40 of the youths volunteered to continue with more dance lessons, said Cole, who’s been asked about whether extra-curricular classes can be held for children. Anyone interested should call Dave Stemmler at 403-885-2785 or 403-341-5603.
