Since the 1950s with thanks to many brilliant promoters, artists and Rock n Roll bands, Rock n Roll dancing has been a favourite past-time for all generations. During the 50s, especially from 1955 dancing especially Rock n Roll was freedom from the pressures of life, rules, home and school. It belonged to the teen-agers of that era and gave them some sense of belief for the future, joy and happiness.

Rock n Roll dancing was more than just a dance it was a whole culture that brought people together and made communities stronger and happier. Dancing in the past (pre and post 50s) especially Rock n Roll, Swing and Ballroom was something that was enjoyed by many every night of the week. Dancing especially Rock n Roll and Swing was a great activity that improved endurance, balance, flexibility and enhanced ones life and well-being as it brought joy, friendship and love to life.

The best thing about dancing is, it actually does not matter who you are, where you have come from, what your sporting experience is or your resume, dancing is something that calls you and drives you to express yourself. You do not have to be the worlds best or be perfect at dancing. What you do need to do is to find a dance style that suits you, motivates you and makes you feel alive like Rock n Roll. Generally, people are attracted to certain styles of music as it is the music that you will be listening to, dancing with, expressing yourself and your emotions for. So to love dance is to love music, these two factors go hand in hand!

We had a great day out at the Penrith Festival in 2011. We spent the day hanging around with the Vintage FM team at there stall along with rock n roll legend Lonnie Lee who was signing his new calendar.

The day started off being nice and sunny then all of a sudden a storm hit with some hail but even that was not enough to dampen everyone's spirit. It soon cleared up and it was soon time to hit the parade and then again just as we where getting ready the heavens opened up again and we continued with the parade.
