SOUTHINGTON - The Southington Community YMCA is hosting a Valentine’s Dinner and Dance for families on Feb. 9.

The event will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the all-purpose room of the YMCA, at 29 High St.

It will feature a pasta dinner, crafts, and dancing games with Nick Charnysh, the Y’s youth program director, who is helping to organize the event.

Parents will have opportunities to learn dances such as the ChaCha Slide as they spend the night creating fun memories with their children.

Charnysh said the Valentine’s Dinner and Dance is a “great opportunity for families to come together and create memories in a fun environment.”

He added that the number of families who attend grows each year.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate family, friends, and loved ones with dinner and dancing,” said Charnysh. “We love seeing all of the families dressed up in their Valentine’s Day outfits, taking pictures, making Valentine’s Day cards for friends and enjoying a line dance or two.”

Families are encouraged to register as soon as possible so that they are guaranteed a spot. Membership is not required to join attend the event, however, everyone who plans on attending will need to register at the front desk of the Southington Community YMCA. Full members can attend for $5 per person, program members for $10 per person, and non-members for $15 per person.
