What to expect

From 1:30 PM – Taster Classes

We’ll offer two rounds of taster classes. These are just 15 minutes long, why not try something you haven’t done before?

Classes include:
Contemporary and Ballet with Levi Szabo
Hilal Dance with Rachael Hilton
Dance for Seniors with Philip Piggin
Zumba with Naomi Atkins
• Strength and Flexibility with Ben Brikcius

2.15pm – Great Big Community Dance

There’s no need to learn our fabulous dance first. Simply join the group, check out who the leaders are and follow along. It’s all about participating, connecting with others, sharing a joyful experience and having a great time.

We are thrilled that Tanamasi, one of Canberra’s most popular drumming ensembles, will be playing live music.

Our community dance has been choreographed by Gretel Burgess, Max Burgess, Rachael Hilton, Levi Szabo and Jacqui Simmonds. We’ve made it so anyone and everyone can do it, or your version of it.

If you want a sneak preview of the dance, a video will be available toward the end of September.

Afterwards – Cake. As no birthday celebration is complete without cake.

What to wear?

Bright colours, ideally one bright colour for your top half and another bright colour for your bottom half. Comfortable shoes. Bring a lightweight scarf for the finale, in your pocket or tie it around your waist.
