All dances are taught, walked through and called as they are danced.  Beginners are most welcome.  Theme nights are evenings where all the dances are drawn from that particular genre. Most, but not all, are bush dances.  Last year’s Theme Nights were spectacularly successful.  Feel free to dress up in costume and add to the atmosphere.

Being primarily an adult dance, we don’t encourage small children – it’s too easy for them to get in the way and be trampled – but older children are welcomed, subject to our “Guidelines for Children, their parents and others”. 




 Admission $20.00 including supper

CCBDMA Members - $15.00

    Students 13 to 18 - $10.00

Children under 12 - $7.00
