We are pleased to announce an Introductory 6 week International Folk Dance Course - on Saturdays from 1:30 - 2:30 in Dalkeith Hall, Waratah Avenue in Nedlands. Commencing 15th October

This is a great opportunity for physical and mental exercise; to have fun, get fit and socialise. View or download the flyer here

Other Updates

Check out the calendar below for forthcoming events - key things include the annual Spring in the Hills event - dancing at Glen Forest Hall followed by a BYO lunch at Jenny Currell's place, and another coming up soon is The Albany Shanty Festival which included some superb dancing last year - see the programme below.

Note that a number of dance sessions have been cancelled - Monday 26 Sep [Hall closed by Nedlands Council - King's Holiday]; Friday 30 Sep [no dancing due to School Holidays], Monday 3 October cancelled due to lack of dancers.

Saturday class on 1 October will be held - with Peter co-ordiating the dance list

The new format at our Dalkeith sessions seems to be going well - no teaching as such, just a playlist of favourites. Let us know what you think.
