Swing dance lessons/event Saturday

If romance and or rhythm is your thing, check out the Valentine’s Day Swing Dance event in Tofino.

It’s a fundraiser for the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society, with swing dance lessons from 8-9:30 p.m., and then dancing with electro-swing DJ Eliazar from 9:30-midnight.

It’s all on at Tofino Community Hall, and tickets are just $15 at Common Loaf and Studio 1, said Tia Traviss.

“We’re doing this to raise money for the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society so everyone can come and swing dance and have some fun,” Traviss said, adding that the cause is a great one.

“The society does research that will help benefit sea life in the future,” she said.

For information, call Traviss at 250-534-9842.
