ASAAbbotsford Seniors Association – hold a dance every Friday evening at their centre on Essendene Avenue. This seemed to be mostly for couples although there were one or two single members.

There’s a live band most evenings – which is great! The music/dances are waltz, Viennese waltz, foxtrot, one or two jives, polka, a rumba or two and possibly other ballroom. We did a couple of line dances and the atmosphere was very friendly.

Dancing is so good for you – come out and try!

Suburban Swing – East Coast Swing on Tuesday evenings at the Phoenix Bar in Finnegans Pub. There was a free lesson at 7.30pm before the dancing started – excellent teacher. Most of the dancers were young – but often I’m told there is a varied crowd. Occasionally there is a live band and dancers are encouraged to buy drinks and/or food during the evening.
