A Message From Peter & Paz
Dance North Update – January 2023:
“Boogie With The Stars” is a New Year’s Eve Grand Gala Event held every two years, offering a dinner and dance occasion for the general public as well as raising money for local charities. For more information, please follow the link under the Menu.
We have been doing BWTS since 2010, and as we look back at our very humble beginnings, how could we have ever known where it would take us. Wow! – the colour, the energy, the dedication and effort, the high degree of accomplishment and the fabulous combined result has filled us with pride and appreciation, and definitely renewed our determination to carry it on to the next BWTS in 2024.
We would like to extent a very special thanks to Jeff Gruending from Precision FX – his highly professional and polished product now makes it possible for us all to relive each moment, and his great work will continue to allow us all to revisit the evening over and over. He truly did capture the colour and the energy in the room, which enables us all to enjoy all the special moments in a way not possible to do so live.

Although you do not need a partner to attend, we all realise that by its very nature, dancing is a couples activity. We are not in a position to guarantee a partner, however, singles are very welcome and that of course offers an opportunity to pair up with other singles, so please don’t let that hold you back.
We will send out our weekly updates just before the start of each new week of dance sessions. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email us at any time.
See you soon,
Peter & Paz (fully vaccinated)
Learn With Us
Dancing is a unique form of exercise as it provides the health benefits of aerobic exercise while allowing you to engage in a comfortable, social environment. Physical benefits aside, dancing has a way of brightening up a person’s day!
Does your level of dance determine or even restrict the type of social event you might attend ? On one particular occasion we overheard someone saying that, although they would love to, they were not attending a particular prominent dinner & dance event in town because they couldn’t dance well enough – how unfortunate, especially when that scenario is so avoidable.
- Do you feel awkward dancing in public ?
- Does your dancing feel stiff and uncoordinated ?
- Do you seem to always forget your steps or can’t seem to match your steps to the music ?
- Does your partner never seem to know what you want them to do ?
- Does it feel like you are not having any fun ?
Well, with a little commitment and determination, and yes, regular practice, almost anyone can become a proficient enough dancer to have the confidence to attend any type dance event they like. Dance North offers regular practice in a comfortable and friendly environment. We work on basics, lead and follow, frame and dance floor etiquette, from beginner to intermediate levels. With all our dance sessions, we focus heavily on fundamentals and basics – with these elements in place, it creates a solid platform for any level of participation.
Casual “Drop-in” is not available at this time – pre-booked, pre-paid dance sessions will run one month at a time for the foreseeable future – see details under “Registration” above
Weekly sessions held Mondays & Fridays at 7:30, September through to June.
Brunswick Activity Centre – 425 Brunswick Street, Prince George BC
Please note that Dance North is a SCENT FREE environment.
