If you have ever felt you “could have danced all night,” then you are in luck. Canowindra’s New Vogue dance group will be hosting a 12 hour dance marathon on 4 July at the Canowindra Services Club. Organiser Gail Davis is promising a day of fun and connection.
“Since COVID, there is not that much to do and it is hard to get out,” said Gail. “The dance is about getting people together — socially, mentally and physically.”
The mammoth day begins at 10am, with morning tea and live music. New Vogue champions and brother/sister dance team, Joel Tongue and Cassandra Donnelly will delight the audience in the afternoon with a demonstration. An afternoon grazing platter for a gold coin donation will keep dancers fueled and lunch and dinner can be taken at the Services Club.
The day promises to entertain young and old alike and is perfect for singles or families.
“You do not have to be a dancer; you can just come along to watch. Come for one hour or stay for 12,” Gail said.
Entrance to the event is $10. At $1 an hour, the dance is the cheapest day on the town going, a feat made possible by Cabonne Council’s grant of $1,500 for the New Vogue dance group. Gail is positively evangelical about the benefits of dancing for every person, particularly in Canowindra on the Services Club’s renowned dance floor.
“We want to make Canowindra the dance capital of the Central West,” Gail finished.
