Association revives Dancing by the Water
The Central Coast Bush Dance and Music Association revived its Dancing by the Water evenings in Woy Woy on January 4.
Ten members of the association took to the water's edge at Lions Park, Woy Woy, in a display of bush dance.
"It has been a number of years now since the association ran its Dancing by the Water at Lions Park, but now we're back," said association secretary Ms Robyn Northwood.
In past years, dancers would enjoy a social chat, a glass of something nice and a picnic, before taking up the dance, she said.
"Many of our participating dancers were new to bush dancing so we chose a typical bush dance to perform and in no time at all they were all making the right moves, following the calls and 'stripping the willow' in perfect time with the music," Ms Northwood said.
The association decided to revive Dancing by the Water this year and will continue to run the event at Lions Park on Saturday evenings throughout January, weather permitting.
Ms Northwood said the association was keen to welcome any new members or dancing enthusiast regardless of age or experience and will be holding several workshops at various locations across the southern Central Coast over the coming months.
