Jack OR Jill Contest

 Looking for a new challenge?  

          2016 marked the debut of our              Jack OR Jill line dance contest.    

For years the partner dancers have had the fun of competing  in Jack & Jill contests, so we looked for a way to let Line Dancers enjoy the same sort of challenge.

 Here's how it works:

On Friday afternoon, we will  teach the dance for the competition.  Anyone registered for the event  can take the class.  The name of the dance will not be released until that time so no one gets to practice ahead of time.

At 8:45 that evening the contest happens in the line dance ballroom. 

The entry fee is $5. To enter, bring your money to the contest and enter right on the floor. ​(No Instructors please)   ALL fees are returned as prize money to the 1st, 2nd  and 3rd place winners.  The 1st place  winner will also claim the title of "Jack OR Jill Champion" and will receive the Sweetheart Jamboree Jack OR Jill prize bag that has  been generously donated by our  contest sponsor, Steel Creek , Tacoma's finest Country nightclub.
