Dance until you drop at the Vernon fundraising sock hop

The inaugural event is Jan. 19

It’s time to dance in support of the Literacy Society of the North Okanagan.

The Tracy K Holly Dance Club Ladeez inaugural Bop ‘til you Drop Sock Hop is Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Vernon Elk’s Lodge 45.

The Ladeez are a group of local dance students and friends who want to share their love of dance while supporting a great cause. They emphasize that you don’t need to know how to dance to attend – it’s really just an excuse to have a good time and shake off the winter blues.

“This year we chose to support the Literacy Society of the North Okanagan” said Tracy Cory Holly, dance instructor. “The ladies have been practising a number to perform just for fun.”

Tickets are $20 per person and are available from Lorna at Cheek to Cheek Dance Studio on Tuesday or Friday evenings and at Carousel Consignments every day but Wednesday. They can also be purchased at the Literacy Society offices at No. 303 People Place, Monday to Thursday until 4 p.m. There will be tickets at the door as available.
