 Community Dance- La Folie en Rouge  

Message from the PAC from Ecole Les Aiglons:

As many of you know – over the last four years an event called “la Folie en Rouge” dance has been hosted for grade 4-5-6 kids in our community by Ecole Les Aiglons. The dance is for many children their first social event without parents. Christine McLeod, PAC chair for les Aiglons has organized this event since day one and what makes it unique is the 300 kids coming from EVERY school in our community.  Christine’s email is impactpeoplepractices@gmail.com and her cell is 604.848.9407- please don’t hesitate to contact her with any questions.  Feb 9th at École Squamish Elementary, there is a dance for all Grade 4,5,6 students in Squamish. The dance is hosted by Ecole les Aiglons and the 300 tickets sell out each year. At this point just a little over 100 tickets remain. The dance is a drop off event from 7-9pm and includes a photo booth, concession, draw prizes and two fantastic DJs.  You can purchase tickets at


We have over 80 volunteers for 300 kids making this an incredibly safe, fun event!
