The outfits were fabulous. The dancing even better.

Vernon-Salmon Arm’s City Dance hosted a Studio Showcase at its Vernon location on 29th Street Friday evening.

The studio put on a gala evening of showcase routines and open dancing.

Instructors Heather Stranks and a caped, hooded Jens Goerner kicked off the evening with a Halloween-inspired performance.

They were joined by couples from the recent Dancing with the Vernon Stars, which included the double award-winning dancing doctors pair of Dr. Aisha Manji and Dr. Nicholas Half reprising their winning cha-cha routine; Vernon Mayor Victor Cumming and his wife, Mary-Anne Reid, doing a waltz; and the couple of Michelle Hill and Paul Sterritt recreating Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious dance from Mary Poppins.

“We also host dance parties once per month so that you can practice those great moves you have learned in your classes.”
