Running a Bush Dance

Running a Bush Dance


Thinking of a fund-raising or corporate function? Need a fun-filled active night?

What about running a good old Aussie bush dance?

Bush dancing is easy, there is no dancing experience needed and all the dances are taught on the night. Dress can be smart casual or an "Australiana" dress theme for a bit of extra fun, and comfortable shoes suitable for active dancing. Guests don't need to come with a partner and many of the bush dances are great mixers done in sets of 2, 3 or more people so everyone gets a chance to dance.
