For anyone who needs  to get out and dance this weekend, there will be an opportunity Saturday with the Naughty La Nina dance.

Dance instructor Amber Hayes is putting on the event, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. There will be an hour of dance instructions, which Hayes says will be sultry.

“We will teach some salsa,” Hayes says. “But some grinding hot merengue will also be included. Then dance the night away.”

The night will also include a sacrifice to Nina and Ullr, the forces that control the winter weather, with the winner receiving a prize pack from local ski shops.

There will also be prizes for best costume and a 50/50 draw going to Rossland and District Search and Rescue.

Hayes says there is no need for experience or even a partner and the cost of the lessons is by donation.

Dancers must be over 19 years old to participate.
