Since 1974, members of the Melbourne Colonial Dancers have been meeting on a Wednesday night.
In 2022 we will meet at
Deepdene Uniting Church Hall, 958 Burke Road, Balwyn
(parking is available at end of Dale Street). Dancing
8pm-10pm followed by a cuppa. Entrance is $8
The dance year, for us, usually
starts on the first Wednesday in February and finishes on the
second Wednesday in December.
On Wednesday nights we usually
dance to recorded music, except on Live Music Nights held on
the 2nd Wednesday of the month, where the music is played by
the Melbourne Colonial Dancers Band.
Your first Wednesday night dance
with us is FREE
To help with the dances we are making an effort to provide the instructions for them.
Some Dances can all be found in the book "Merry Country Dance" that has been written by Peter Ellis. Some dances for each month on our proposed program are included in this book. There are instructions for over 170 dances in this book. When Colonial Balls, Woolshed Balls or Tea Dances are being organised then at least 75% of the dances on those programs (and sometimes over 90%) are in this book.
"Merry Country Dance" is sold through the Bush Dance and Music Club of Bendigo. You can purchase it from the Secretary of BDMCB (Mary Smith) 03 54421153. E-Mail Mary by clicking here. The cost is $35 plus 8.60 postage (which will allow you have three books sent).
