Get active in Nagambie with rock ’n’ roll dance

November 08, 2017

Ian & Deb Clinch trying out some dance moves on the new Nagambie mechanics hall floor.

This Saturday night Activate Nagambie will be hosting the first major function in the town’s old Mechanics Hall since the main hall’s floor renovations.

Work began back in September with new stumps and levelling of the ageing floor, boards were replaced where necessary, and the floor now features rich timber colours and a glossy finish.

This year, with the creation of Activate Nagambie, Thursday morning social table tennis and after-school junior coaching has been added to the agenda, while beginner rock ’n’ roll dance classes have started on Thursday evenings to complement the established Friday evening lessons.

This weekend’s dance is an experimental 50-50 dance with the live music of local talent Trevor Dennis.

The format has been designed to bring all the district’s dancers together with classic old-time dance sequences around the outer circle and freestyle options in the centre.

Trevor’s range of music will cater for most dance styles from waltzes to rock ’n’ roll as well as jive, cha cha and foxtrot among others.

Tickets are still available for $15, with a door prize and raffles to be drawn, and as the date falls on Remembrance Day, some proceeds will be donated to Legacy.

For more information or for tickets, phone Christine on 0499995380 or Chris on 0428398026, or otherwise email [email protected] or search Facebook for Activate Nagambie.
