Vanier Competitors "Swing Out" in Successful
"So You Think You Can Dance" Competition
February 15, 2006

Jake's Mall throbbed to the beat of Rumba, Cha-Cha, Merengue and Salsa music as the Vanier community witnessed a truly amazing and entertaining spectacle. Inspired by the TV show of the same name, Vanier dancers who had virtually no experience whatsoever in such traditional styles gave it their all and competed for the prize of best male and female ballroom dancer. Thanks to Pat Dichmann for handling the teaching duties. Congratulations to the winners (left) and to Peggy McCoy of Student Services who organized this great event. See photos by David Boily, view a video clip from CBC-TV and read a Mike Boone Gazette article.


CBC-TV was on hand to film the festivities and have graciously given us permission to post the video clip.


Mike Boone of The Gazette wrote an excellent article on the competition in his column of February 15th.
