Time to try out square dancing

How long is it since you’ve been square dancing? Grade 5? Before the Earth’s crust cooled?

How long is it since you’ve been square dancing?

Grade 5? Before the Earth’s crust cooled?

Chemainus Gardens RV Park will be the scene of a family-friendly hoedown on Friday,          May 6.

With an authentic old-time string band and callers coming from Vancouver and Victoria, it’s time for some old fashioned fun, says the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society, which is presenting the event.

The music will be by Holler! a string band that features the mother-daughter team of Shiho Mizumoto and Cello Mizumoto, along with Dave Marshall and Noah Gotfrit.

Craig Marcuk will be the caller.

“No experience is needed,” Marcuk says. “All dances are taught on the spot to live music.”

Doors open at 5 p.m. at the facility on 3042 River Rd.

A dance for beginners starts at 6 p.m. and serious square dancing for the knowledgeable starts about 7:30 p.m.

Admission is $10 per person with children under 12 free.

Food and refreshments will be available from 6 p.m. Pulled pork, chili and deserts will be served by CVCAS volunteers
