Jim & Marcia Beckner – This joyful couple wowed the audience in 2016, winning the couples category
with their exuberant Lindy Hop. They had so much fun, these longtime Salmon Arm residents are
bringing that same spirit of adventure back again. Jim is a retired optometrist, while Marcia is retired
from teaching. Marcia also represented Canada in speed skating in the 1968 Grenoble Olympics. The
couple raised two boys in Salmon Arm and now take time to enjoy their five grandchildren and four
granddogs! To say they are active is an understatement, as this couple takes on everything from cycling
to paddling to skiing, and then there’s also singing, gardening and acting! Plus, we know they can dance!
Is there anything they cannot do? We’re so excited for their comeback.
