Finish off the school year at the youth dance in Duncan

The final youth dance of the school year is an event local youth, ages 10 to 13, won’t want to miss out on, say organizers of the Spring Fling Youth Dance scheduled for Friday, May 30.

The dance takes place from 7-10 p.m. in the Genoa Room at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan.

Attendees will get a complimentary bag of chips and canned beverage in the ticket price of $8. "The youth dances are a great way to socialize, be active, meet new friends from other schools and most importantly, be safe and have fun," said a press release about the event. "The change in venue is something staff are testing out in belief it may enhance the fun atmosphere."

"As always, as part of providing a safe activity, parents are welcome to check the dance out anytime throughout the event as long as they are escorted by staff," the press release reminds. "Youths can call home should they decide to leave early by asking staff. At the end of the dance, the staff will ensure all youths have a safe way home before leaving."

Tickets for the Youth Dance are on sale now and can be purchased at the Ticket Centre. For more information, call the Ticket Centre 250-748-PLAY (7529).
