Dancers swing into spring

26 Oct 2014

Dancers swing into spring Image

Local dance lovers converged on Queensbridge Square in Southbank on October 3, for the monthly installment of the City of Melbourne’s 1st Friday Dance Club.

With the start of daylight saving bringing longer days and warmer nights, residents, workers and passers-by flocked to the red steps to soak up the festive atmosphere.

With local dance company Jhoom-Bollywood leading this month’s Bollywood inspired theme, dance lovers were given a chance to learn some new skills with guidance from professionals.  

Chair of Melbourne City Council’s Art and Culture, Cr Rohan Leppert said the public dance classes provided great opportunities for people to learn, share and experience dance.

“The 1st Friday Dance Club is a free and fun event where everyone can learn some new dance moves in the spring air,” he said.

Led by community and professional dance groups, the club is produced by the City of Melbourne and inspired by a similar practice that takes place in many Chinese cities where citizens gather in public places to dance.
