Teen dances begin Tuesday

All that’s needed is Kevin Bacon leading the call with a full-throated “Let’s dance!”

Ameican Legion Post 23 is giving area teens that opportunity beginning Tuesday with a weekly teen dance at the James R. Saddler Veterans Hall, 705 Court Street in Portsmouth, across from the county courthouse.

Music will be provided by a D.J. from 7 to 10 p.m., and there will be several adult chaperones and a police officer to ensure a safe and orderly event. Refreshments are available for purchase.

Admission is $5, with proceeds benefitting the American Legion and its activities to support veterans.

Dances are scheduled each Tuesday through Aug. 21.
