Dancing by the Water series starts at Lions Park
The Dancing by the Water series run by the Central Coast Bush Dance and Music Association started in Lions Park, Woy Woy, on January 11, after the first dance in the series was cancelled due to the heat.
"After being forced to cancel our first Dancing By The Water on January 4, simply because it was just too hot to dance, we were thrilled to have perfect dancing weather for our second attempt," said Association secretary Ms Robyn Northwood.
Six couples enjoyed perfect dancing conditions, she said.
The bush dances included the Thady You Gander, Country Bumpkin and Big Circle Waltz, as well as the more complex Queen of Sheba and Geud Man of Ballanghai.
She said members were pleased to have been able to meet in January after a spate of poor weather kept the group away.
"Fingers are crossed for similar conditions for the remaining two Saturday evenings in January," she said.
It is hoped conditions will be favourable for the remaining two Saturdays of the month with the group planning to meet on both afternoons and dance until dark.
"January 11 made a pleasant change from when we were washed out on most of the Saturday evenings in January last year."
The group meets from 5:30pm and anyone is welcome to come along and socialise or try their hand at dancing.
