The Pretzel - A Complex Move

Posted by: Gareth   on:  17/11/2013   Category: moves

You don’t need to be as skinny as a pretzel to perform this move, you just need very flexible arms. You might like to practice it to the Beatles song “Octopus’s Garden”, because you will feel like one of the said cephalopods by the time you’ve done it a few times.




McLaren Vale Rocks

Posted by: Gareth   on:  16/11/2013   Category: general

Teaching around eighty people how to dance Rock n Roll in forty-five minutes isn't the easiest task. But, to a committed dance teacher who really wants to see our wonderful activity preserved and gaining popularity, it's definitely worth the effort. On 9th November 2013, a 1950s Rock n Roll fundraiser was held in the Institute Hall at McLaren Vale, South Australia. The guests were mainly young people in their early twenties. Most had little dance experience, but  they fairly bubbled with energy and enthusiasm. A group of experienced dancers also attended. That was great, as they could show the learners how  the dance should really look.
