Roll Over, Roy Orbison

Oh, Boy! Did Roy Orbison get it wrong? Buddy Holly would have rolled over in his grave while Beethoven, contrary to the lyrics of Chuck Berry’s classic song, rests peacefully in his, secure in the knowledge that his music has withstood the test of time. Rock ‘n’ Roll die? That’ll be the day!

June and Rose love Rock n Roll danceDancing Rock n Roll is a great family activity. Children love music just as much as adults and they enjoy dancing if they're given the opportunity to learn. Dance can help them to appreciate the benefits of structured activity. Since it's also very much a visual art, it can help them to develop self esteem as well as learning constructive social skills within a defined community.

Is "You Lead" a fair call?

Posted by: Gareth   on:  24/10/2013   Category: general

You lead!

What we are concerned with here is the classic and very common cry of a man during dancing of "You led!" (How dare you?)

I am convinced that there's more to this than meets the eye!





Is Dancing Rock n Roll Heaven Or Hell?

Posted by: Gareth   on:  24/10/2013   Category: general

Winston Churchill wrote that after he died and arrived in Heaven he would like to spend a good deal of his first million years painting. I'm no artist, except with the BS perhaps, so after I die I think I would like to spend a good deal of my first million years dancing Rock 'n' Roll. But just what will Rock 'n' Roll be like in Heaven? Perfect, of course.




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.
