A family-friendly New Year’s Eve event that will include lots of dancing has been organized by the newly renamed organization that presents the annual Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival.
Guelph Dance is celebrating its 15th anniversary and the launch of its new name with a New Year’s Eve party and fundraiser on three floors at 10 Carden St., across from city hall.
“Dance the night away to classic funk, soul, R&B and pop from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and today!” a news release said. The Royal Family, featuring Joni NehRita and Rufus John with Attila Toth and Adam Bowman, will play their music at the family-friendly event, the release said.
A supervised kids’ area with crafts, movies, and snacks will allow kids get in on the fun too.
People can try hors d’oeuvres, interact in the lounge or don costume pieces to take some snapshots at a photo booth, the release said. They can also bring their skates and duck out for an hour of supervised skating in Market Square.
Champagne, snacks and noisemakers are included in the ticket price, and there will be a cash bar.
Different prices apply for adults, students and teens, and children under 12 get in free. Tickets can be bought at the Guelph Dance office on the second floor of the Trafalgar Building at 123 Woolwich St.
