Tom Higgins and Barbara Hansen have been dancing together for 25 years. They taught County, Latin, Ballroom and Swing Dance Lessons for the Bend Metro Park and Recreation District for 15 of those years. Four years ago Tom became a member of Bend Elks Lodge #1371 and he immediately started giving our free dance lessons on Friday nights. One of our most popular events. We average over 100 people on Friday nights for dining, dancing and socializing.
