Swing yer partner

Swing yer partner: The Ripple Rockets Square Dance club do-si-doed and boot stomped up a storm as it hosted its annual Blast Off Weekend Friday through Saturday. Approximately 200 dancers took to the floor at the Quinsam Hall. The event kicked off with workshops, followed by round dancing and the ever-entertaining dancing in squares. Dancers came from across the Island as well as Powell River. Next year marks the 60th anniversary of the Ripple Rockets Square Dance club. - Kristen Douglas/The Mirror
