Husband and wife team John and Nadine Woodall show off some of the dance moves they will be bringing to A Glittery Affair at the Monterey Centre Feb. 11.

Glittery affair: Step into an inspired night of dance at Monterey

The return of a competitive dance duo, a 10-piece orchestra and a fancy dinner will make one evening in Oak Bay A Glittery Affair

The return of a competitive dance duo, a 10-piece orchestra and a fancy dinner will make one evening in February A Glittery Affair.

The Monterey Centre hosts the dinner and dance where John and Nadine Woodall will make their return to demonstrate dancing techniques, teaching guests the finer points of the swings, dips and shakes picked up over 13 years of competitive dance across North America.

The Oak Bay residents are looking forward to sharing their expertise and joining forces with the Bob Morrison Orchestra to get attendees of all levels onto the dance floor.

“The best part of it is, it’s a body contact sport,” Nadine said with a laugh. “We haven’t done this for a long time, but if it gets them up to some exercise simply because we took up the challenge, that’s (great).”

Nadine, 77, and her 81-year-old husband of 57 years have been hard at work practicing their moves in colourful dance attire, anticipating an inspiring night of dancing which is just what organizer Ena Cooke, president of the Oak Bay Seniors Activity Association, is hoping for.

“(They are) the icing on the cake. It was important to get them to do the demonstration because they are such beautiful dancers,” she said. “We asked especially for them. They are such great dancers hopefully it will encourage people to get out there.”

Cooke said the dancing duo, food and the Bob Morrison Orchestra will be well worth the $20 price of admission and hopes the evening will take members back to older times.

“We have never had something like this before, they will be dressed up at their glittery best,” she said. “It will be a fabulous night – we will all be dancing with the stars.”


A Glittery Affair takes place in the Garry Oak room at the Monterey Centre in Oak Bay at 5 p.m. on Feb. 11. Tickets are $20 for members and $23 for guests.
