Pender Island Community Hall
PI Jazz Swing Dance
Remember the golden days of swing? (Or at least, PI Jazz before everything closed down?) Either way, it's time to get out your dancing shoes and come along to the Community Hall for a swing dance.
Time & Location

Pender Island Community Hall, 4418 Bedwell Harbour Rd, Pender Island, BC V0N 2M1, Canada
About the event
Bring along a partner (or two) if you can, or see who you might meet on the floor. Have fun, meet old friends and make new ones. Tickets are $15 and can be obtained in advance at Talisman, online, or at the door. Kids and students are free! And if you're not sure of the moves, there will be swing dance lessons from Deirdre Knister. If the music gets too hot, water and pop will be available for sale.
Music will be provided by PI Jazz, Pender's resident jazz big band, featuring some familiar players and some new members to the band (and even to the island). Our leader this year is Bryce Woollcombe (who started us all off way back). With his acrobatic alto in the lead, your musicians have been dusting off a lively playlist of romantic ballads and swinging sizzlers. The band loves playing dances when our energy is reflected back from the folks on the floor.
