Dust off those dancing shoes

Join Robyn Picard for a lesson at the ACT

Join Robyn Picard for a drop-in lesson and dance session at the ACT this week.

On Friday, Picard will teach beginner’s Night Club 2-Step, followed by an “all-styles” dance night.

Picard, as well as her older siblings, were born into and raised by a dancing family.

She started taking jazz, tap, acrobatics, ballet and modern stage at the age of four and went on to learn the various styles of partner dancing that would groom her to follow in her family’s footsteps.

Over the past 18 years, she has taught dance around the Lower Mainland.

Her goal is to continue to facilitate the growing interest in partner dancing for young and old alike, and to introduce dance into more and more peoples lives as a great form of fitness and fun.

• Dances lessons run from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and the practice dance ends at 10 p.m. Tickets are $12 for a lesson and the dance or $9 for the dance only. For more, visit www.theactmapleridge.org.
