The Line Dance Committee will be hosting the annual Christmas Party on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 5:30 to 11:00 pm at AGCC in AR1. Once again the spirit of giving will be incorporated.

Unlike previous years’ food drive, the committee will collect socks, scarves, gloves, or toques etc. for the homeless. Homelessness is no longer a problem mythical for Toronto only, but also a problem coming out of hiding in York region. We will donate items and funds collected to the Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold program (OOTC) (https://www.miotc.ca/about). Such program is a coalition of over 50 interfaith communities in York Region. Shelters are operated by 12 host communities, one of which is at the Toronto Christian Community Church in south Markham (100 Acadia Avenue).

Party tickets are on sale starting October 21 for 3 weeks. Price for members is $10 (includes pizza & refreshments). Members may sign up to purchase tickets with the monitors at the respective classes. Ticket price for non-members is $15, on sale on November 11, if available.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to OOTC.

*** Tickets are all sold out to our members! ***
We are no longer able to accommodate non-members.
Please bring your membership card and the ticket to gain entry to the party.

Click here to preview the Party Dance List (with links to step sheets).
If you cannot join the party but still wish to donate the items, please speak with your class monitors.
The Line Dance Committee sincerely thank you for your support and wish you a Merry Christmas.
