Preperations begin for Amamoor State School bush dance

THEY'LL be stripping the willow and jigging to their hearts' content at the Amamoor State School P&C's annual bush dance at the Amamoor Hall on Saturday, July 25.

What was initially intended to be a bi-annual affair has proved so popular that it is now held each year.

This is the fourth dance hosted by the P&C, and every year visitors come from further afield.

Live music will again be provided by the Grey Cats dance band, and all dances will be called to enable even beginners to get in on the fun.

Classic dances such as the Flying Pieman and Heel and Toe Polka will feature along with the occasional not-so-traditional dance such as the Nutbush, which always sees the dance floor packed with kids and kids-at-heart.

Other old-time favourites such as the Gypsy Tap and Pride of Erin will also be included, so there is definitely something to get every foot tapping.

As is the tradition with Amamoor functions, a delicious spread of home-cooked delights will be provided for supper, which is included in the entry price, and soft drinks will be available for purchase.

A multi-draw raffle, lucky door prize, lucky spot prizes and best-dressed competition will be held to add to the fun of the evening, with all proceeds going to the Amamoor State School P&C to fund projects at the school.

So mark July 25 on your calendars and call, email or Facebook your friends and invite them along to experience a wonderful evening of good old-fashioned fun.

Doors open at 6.30pm and dancing starts at 7. Tickets are adults $10, children $2.50, and a family pass is $25.
