Sunday 26th August Special night of Bush Dancing
As a special one off experience we will have Jane from the Victorian Folk Music Club come along and teach us some fun bush dancing on Sunday 26th Aug from 6.30 - 8pm.
This will be a fun night that will be suitable for your non dancing friends as well so ask them along.
Australian Bush Dancing has its roots in the very early settlement of the colony, and was influenced by the styles and customs of the early settlers. It became a popular form of social dancing in both the country and the city, but only got its name during the folk revival in the 1950’s – you have quite likely done some of this at primary school.
The Victorian Folk Music Club runs a bush dance with a live band on the first Saturday of the month at Ringwood East Senior Citizens hall, 8-11pm $12.
We will also do rock n roll and progressives on the night as usual.
Here's a video link to a bush dance routine.
