The Glenwood Park YMCA is hosting its FIFTH annual Remembering Y-Co, 1950s & ’60s Dance. The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 7-11 p.m. at Rainbow Gardens (doors will open at 6:30pm). The dance will bring back memories from your teenage years of the great dances organized by Andy Petersen. Remember the membership cards, the strict dress code, not dancing too close, and Paul Anka’s “All Of The Sudden My Heart Sings.”
Remember those great hula hoop and dance contests that took place at the dances. We are going to have those very same contests. So tune up your “Twist” and your “Jitterbug”. We are also going to judge anyone that dresses in 60’s era clothing, though it is not a requirement.
The music, that is another reason the dances were so special. Popular music from the late 50’s into the very early 70’s will be performed by DJ John, who will “spin” records from this era.
In addition to wonderful musical memories, great contests, and of course dancing, you will be able to see old photos, your school’s decorations, and re-connect with people you may not have seen in quite a while.
