On Monday night, August 13th at the Macedonian Hall (148 Crittenden Road, Findon), Findon a special charity social dance is being hosted by the non-profit organisation, The Adelaide Outlaws, to celebrate and support the wonderful work done by the Cancer Care Centre. The night will not only raise funds for the centre, but it will be a fun social evening where you can learn and enjoy some easy square dancing and some mixer dances along with entertainment in a friendly atmosphere set to music.
Back in the 1950's, square dancing evolved to the sounds of country music. Today, it incorporates contemporary music, Hooked On Classics, Broadway tunes, jazz and rock 'n' roll from the 50's and 60's. Oh yes, and it still includes country music and the square dancers still form groups of 8, just as they did when square dancing originally evolved.
"Invitation for anyone to learn easy dance steps."
Much of the exciting musical program is the achievement of Graham Elliott, whose love of a variety of music has earned him the title of 'Mr Entertainment from his interstate square dance engagements.

The evening will feature Graham, who will guarantee you spend the evening having fun laughing and having a great time square dancing the night away. "It's a great way to make new friends," says Graham, "and it really does take their mind off their daily worries and hustles, as they never quite know what I am going to call next, which makes for a sense of fun and great dance therapy."
Graham says, "One of the great things people like about square dancing is that you don't need to know any fancy dance steps. Our style of square dancing is walking to the beat of the music, while I 'sing' directional commands."

The Adelaide Outlaws Club is one of South Australia's most popular Square Dancing Clubs, and will continue to invite anyone interested in learning more square dancing to attend on Monday nights, from August 20th to September 17th at 7.00pm.
During August, the charity donation box for the Cancer Care Centre will remain at the door.
Adelaide Outlaws welcomes new members and visitors from interstate and overseas. Square dancing is a popular activity for all ages that follows a standard world-wide format, allowing dancers to participate in square dances anywhere in the world.
