Bush Dance Workshops

Tuesday Night Music Group


We are a community of musicians, dancers and singers in the Canberra region who love participating in many different forms of folk music and dance, combining contemporary elements with traditional forms.

Our various groups and activities offer a number of opportunities to get involved, be it to develop your skills, meet like-minded people, have fun, or all of the above.

These include a variety of regular dance workshops and events as well as participatory music sessions and performance opportunities. Most of our groups are open to all comers. For further details, see the drop down menus above, or contact us at info@monarofolk.org.au.

Our next Merry Muse Folk Club event is happening on 22 May 2022.  

The Canberra Celtic Choir meets every Monday Night.

BUSH DANCING:  Bush Dance Workshops (with music by the Bush Capital Band) have resumed at All Saints and will continue most Mondays until the end of June 2022.

The next Saturday evening bush dance will be on May 14th 2022 (second Saturday of each month).

We have prepared an MFS COVID-19 Safety Plan as guidance for organisers of group sessions.
