Let your hair down, rock the night away at gala dance
Dancing has been around for millenniums; it is one of those activities that goes on forever and is not attributed to a trend or becomes dated. It does not matter what sort of dancing you do, as long as you are having fun. It is stated that archaeologists have found evidence of dancing being enjoyed as far back as 9000 years ago in India and Egypt, where dancing figures were depicted on rock walls and tombs.
Dancing is very beneficial not only for fitness, but it also improves brain functions by combining both cerebral and cognitive thought processes with muscle memory. Enjoying dancing most of my life, I have learned that you certainly need to remember what steps come next or you will bump into another person.

The Village Rockers Inc are holding a Gala Dance on Saturday 19th May 2018 at the Tudor Park Hall in Loganholme. Cost is $15.00 per person and the night will kick off at 7.30pm and conclude 11.30pm. The proceeds from this dance will support Youth Mental Health at Meadowbrook. The band for the evening is Buddy Love and the Tremors. There will also be raffles on the night. The night is BYO drinks and parking is free. You may also like to bring a snack for your table to share.
If you would like to learn the 4 step Rock n Roll that the Village Rockers enjoy, beginners classes of a six-week block start on the first Wednesday of every even month, except December. Learning should be fun as you are not expected to be perfect with every step. The only thing that is asked is that once you start the six-week instruction, you attend each lesson for that period. The classes are held at the Old School House opposite the Lion's Hall. Intermediate classes are also available. More information on these lessons can be found on their website. It is said that a thirty-minute dance lesson can burn between 130 and 250 calories, which is about the same as jogging.

The Village Rockers were originally a few friends who were attending classes and practising together. They decided to design their own rock-n-roll shirts and chose a name for their group. As they grew in number, they progressed to forming an Incorporation Association in 2013.

Apart from attending regular dances as a group, they also enjoy other excursions such as camping, cycling, kayaking etc., with some dancers making new and lifelong friends.
