Merry Xmas & Happy New Year


I try to keep the blog site updated as much as possible but like most of us, time is limited and we get very busy looking after family and grandkids etc.

I have made a change to my Sunday class which has now moved to Tuesday Morning for 3 hours. It is not going to suit everyone, but I needed to make the change to suit my life and spend more time with Rob (husband) and also I am looking after my mum (95).

Also this change will give me the chance to go to socials in Sydney & Canberra on Saturday nights and not have to rush back home for the Sunday class.

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Xmas and a Safe happy New Year.

Hope to see you all again in the near future. xx

Nowra first Inaugural Dance Affair

Ian Pidd who is an organiser of Dance & Theatre ask all groups of dancers in the Shoalhaven Region to perform at this Dance Affair. We were asked to perform a little welcome act to kick off the night, which was a lot of fun.



We had 30 girls to do a one dance demo "Get it Right" and I was also asked to teach a beginner dance  for all the audience to have a go "Ah Si" dance to Pitbull's Fireball

There were many other forms of dancers, Country Folk Dance, Shoalhaven Performers, Irish Dancers, Ballroom and Rock & Roll Exhibitions.

Thanks to all that turned up for this amazing dance affair. Let's hope they put on another one in the future.

Illawarra Social October

Maddison Glover knows how to put on a great social weekend of dancing. Friday night they had a social which I did not attend, but I believe everyone had a wonderful time. On Saturday we went to the workshop with Maddison & Tom Glover.


After the workshop we went to the Saturday Night Social and had a wonderful time, what a nice selection of dances for all different levels of dancing.
Thanks Maddy looking forward to next years social.

September Social Fund Raiser

The social went very well raising money for the Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre. Thank you to everyone that bought raffle tickets and coming along to both socials. We raised a total of $3,019.00.

Friday night was a meet & greet with 60 people attending, lots of requests for the night with lots of golden oldies and many of the new dances requested as well. The time went so quickly and everyone enjoyed the evening. Thanks to all those that travelled long distance, Canberra, North Sydney, Milton, Sydney, Sussex Inlet.

Saturday Afternoon was fantastic with 122 people attending 6 hours of dancing with a set program of 60 dances plus requests in between brackets, needless to say most hobbled out by the end of the evening. Everyone enjoyed a chocolate mud slab cake and 2 huge fruit platters, which didn't take long to disappear.

Shoalhaven Line Dancers thanks you all for coming along to raise money for our local charity and hope to see you all again next year at the same time the weekend after Father's Day.

Feathertop Social

Feathertop Social was at Harrietville Victoria near Falls Creek.  Darren Mitchell and John put on a fantastic Weekend, with Maddison Glover doing the workshop with Darren.

6 dances were taught over 2 days, so we didn't feel quite so overloaded. We had 3 socials, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, These socials were all requests, I didn't know a lot of the dances, but it gives me the opportunity to pick and choose the dances I would like to teach.

We travelled on the train from Moss Vale to Albury, with Tom & Donna Glover, Maddison and the group from Illawarra, what a great way to see parts of NSW, just beautiful country side, this took 5 hours, then a 2 hour bus trip from Albury to Harrietville, the time went really fast, as there is so much to see.

I would like to thank Darren & John for the most professional Weekend of dancing that I have attended, the meals were great, the rooms very comfortable and warm, you did a great job with the organising of the whole weekend, my only gripe was that I didn't get to see snow(one day hopefully) will definitley come back again.

Also a big thanks to the girls that joined me for this weekend. Jenny Landsberry, Sonja Binks, Brenda Scarborough, Rhonda Brightwell, Brenda English, & Robyn Delaney. We all had a wonderful time.
