On the 5th and 6th November we were invited to attend the Everglades Vintage and Retro Weekend we had many students make the trip for the two days dressed looking the part.
Over the two days we did some demonstrations of social swing and rock n roll dancing. We also conducted a Charleston lesson on the wonderful gardens at the everglades with some wonderful mountain views.
On Saturday, 6th August 2011, some of the members from Let's Moove n Groove Dance & DJ attended the Music for Life fundraiser that was held in conjunction with Harvey World Travel and Vintage FM on High Street.
We would sincerely like to thank Vintage FM 87.6 where the good times are felt and remembered through the fabulous music hits played from the past. This was a great opportunity for our group as we were in home territory. We have Rock n Roll dance classes at Penrith RSL every Monday night with a new beginner course starting every 5 weeks.
Let’s Moove n Groove Dance & DJ’s Rock n Roll dancers from all levels enjoyed 2 big days at the Penrith Show that was once again held at the Penrith Showground by Penrith Paceway. LMNG was working alongside our friends at Vintage FM 87.6 on Saturday, 27th August 2011 and Sunday, 28th August 2011. Just like last year there were a lot of families out and about enjoying the many attractions that the Penrith Show has been famous for including wood chopping, horse riding, stalls, amusements, dancing from hip hop to contemporary and of course Rock n Roll, lots of amazing singing talent and much more.
Many thanks for all the encouragement and support from those who were unable to attend and especially for those that committed hours on either 1 or both days to showcase how easy, fun and friendly the original and popular 50s/60s Rock n Roll dancing is. As always it is such a pleasure to be able to sit back afterwards and enjoy a quiet afternoon like we did at Penrith RSL on the Sunday and enjoyed a few more dancers and drinks in the Castlereagh Lounge to the fabulous band “Rockin Rebels“. We hope you will enjoy the photos that will continue to remind us of all the good times had and to come as we continue to socialise, enjoy life and get out and about!
On Wednesday, 27th July 2011 some members from the Let's Moove n Groove Dance group attended by invitation from Event Cinemas at Castle Hill in Castle Towers the Grease Sing-A-Long Chicks at the Flicks evening. The group was able to provide some great and energetic pre-entertainment in the foyer near the jukebox. Providing the pre-entertainment helped hype the audience and set the theme for the movie. Many thanks to everyone that was able to spare some time to help out and show case the fun and love of Rock N Roll and dancing.
We are sure that all the patrons enjoyed the famous movie and the biggest blockbuster from 1978, which contained a love story of the 1950s between teens Danny and Sandy played by John Trovolta and Olivia Newton John. The movie contains some all time favourite songs including Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, You're the one that I want, Blue Moon and We Go Together.
Once again Let’s Moove n Groove Dance & DJ together with some of their rock n roll dancers from all levels attended the St Mary’s Spring Festival for 2011. It was another great day shared with some friends that share a common love and interest for Rock n Roll and all things old – Vintage FM 87.6 . The St Marys Spring Festival in 2011 was a huge hit, with many families, local talent including dancers, singers, bands and more, community members, local council, small business, local community radio stations, stall holders, attractions and amusements and Channel 9 weather reports all out in support of such a fantastic day! We are already looking forward to the September 2012 St Marys Spring Festival.
We were lucky to have the brilliant opportunity to demonstrate on stage what Rock n Roll dancing from the 50s/60s is and how much fun it is. Whilst we were on stage we took the time to conduct a mini rock n roll dance class and had some great support from young and promising little Rock n Roll dancers. This dance class allowed those in the crowd to participate and get a feel for the fun and joy of Rock n Roll dancing. As a token of appreciation for participants we offered a complimentary 2 for 1 pass to pay Week 1 and receive Week 2 free of any of LMNG’s Rock n Roll dancing beginner courses.
