Dancers set for return to roaring 20s

South Western Times

Pinstripes, fringing and feathers will be in abundance at the Bunbury Dance Studio as the clock winds back to the 1920s for a social cabaret dance at 7pm on Saturday.

Flappers and gangsters are invited to try new moves on the dance floor to raise money for students competing in the Dance Masters International Association Pageant in Perth.

Event coordinator and dance instructor Suzanne Crews said the evening of “old fashioned fun” would include Latin, salsa and rock’n’roll ballroom dancing, as well as line and progressive dances where everyone could join in.

“Everybody is welcome to join us on the night, including beginners who want to try it out,” she said.

“Our youngest dancer is just six-years-old and we hope to get the parents up and dancing as well.”

Mrs Crews said the night was a great opportunity to dress up, meet new people and rediscover the traditional dance style.

“We are a different, old-world style of dancing which should be promoted more in schools because of the connection you make with another person – something that is being lost in today’s world.”

Studio manager Stefan Whiteside said he was thankful to the instructors for volunteering their time to make the event possible.

Tickets can be bought from the studio or at the door.
