TRICA Disco Party


Nothing says wholesome family entertainment like a holiday disco party, and that's exactly what the Treasure Valley Institute for Children's Arts has planned on Sunday, Dec. 6. TRICA sets the stage for an evening of fancy footwork as it ushers in the holiday season with its family dance party. A DJ will be on hand spinning music that's both catchy and clean. Jolly ol' Santa and his wise-cracking wife will be teaching the Santa Waltz, which should work off a few excess cookies-and-milk calories.

While waltzes and discos usually hang out in different dancehalls, at TRICA, there is plenty of dance floor for both. All disco-dressed enthusiasts will get a chance to do their best John Travolta impression amid dance lights, a fog machine and a disco ball. Afraid you don't have the moves? Don't fret, there will be a disco expert on hand to show you the electric-sliding ropes. Those born ready to shimmy can take center stage on the go-go dance platforms and compete in a winner-takes-all dance-off. The night will also feature a dance performance by TRICA's Leap Troupe and an art exhibit by local young artists.

Sunday, Dec. 6, 4 p.m.-5:30 p.m., $12, $40 for a family of four, The Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St., 208-344-2220,
