Family
Dance!


There are no current plans for a new

Harmonious Singers Season
If you would be interested in being notified of future plans
Please contact Doug at 250-385-SING (7464)

Mission Statement
To encourage family growth by developing musical bridges between generations that increase listening, attending
and co-operation skills through singing and moving while building stronger relationships and community as we go.

If enough people express interest in either of these two programs
Doug will happily consider scheduling a new season

Child Centred ~ Adults Welcome (*1)
Adult Centred ~ Children Welcome (*1&2)

Child and Family friendly singing, musical games, body percussion, instruments & story play.  

Inter-generational & multi-cultural program of chants, rounds, show tunes & songs sung in unison or harmony.  

All Ages Welcome

12+ yrs recommended

(*1) Children under 12 years old coming to either program must be accompanied by a responsible person 15+ years of age who will be expected to deal with any disruptive behavior.
(*2) Children under 12 are welcome to come to the Adult Centred Program if they are capable of focusing on harmony singing or if they can be occupied quietly with activities of their own so as not to disrupt those who are focused on it.

We invite you join the fun as an individual or
as part of a "birth" or "chosen" family group
New singers are always welcome at either or both sessions
Find out how you can sing with us!
Music is the international language that connects us all!

FAMILY, CONTRA, ETC. DANCE INFO
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our founding Director
DOUG PATERSON
is also a dance caller

the next dance he will be calling is:

======================

TBA

======================

No experience or partner required.

Everyone welcome...at all dances...come by yourself or with a friend...everyone dances with everyone...no experience necessary...all dances taught on the spot. Come and build community!

New to Contra dancing?  This is a warm, welcoming, friendly and frolicsome opportunity to try it out and meet some new people.

Human community is defined by who we touch and who we warmly greet. We all want to be seen, heard and appreciated. Touch builds trust which opens our hearts as well as our relationships and builds a strong sense of belonging. All this occurs on the dance floor.

Come to the next dance to connect
in the cooperative fun of it all!
