The award-winning Tahoe Dance Band invites everyone to a School Days Dance from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Friday at the South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd. Those who wish may wear school clothing from any era. All ages are welcome.
Tahoe Dance Band was named “Best Band” out of 11 bands who competed at the 13th annual Taste of Downtown in Carson City.
It is not necessary to come to the dance as a couple. There will be mixers to see that everyone has a chance to dance and get acquainted. There are always men and women who come alone to find dance partners and to listen to the music.
Admission is $8 and includes wine, appetizers and desserts. Participants can win a free door prize and there will be raffle prizes.
For more information call Al Smith, band manager, at (530) 544-0332, Francine at (530) 544-0334 or Arline at (775) 588-6997.
