Get ready for a great night of dancing with Don Richmond calling and music by Stringfiddfle led by Bob McInnes!

The ACT government has approved our event and the Covid safe practices we have undertaken to follow.
Under current restrictions, we will need to wear masks except for when eating or drinking.
Let’s try and add a festive touch to the masks, maybe a splash of colour or a little bow on the side.

BYO food and drinks. No sharing of food outside of people from the same household/group.

Please have with the exact entry fee, if possible.
$25 for adults, $23 for Groups and concessions, $20 for MFS members and interstate dancers, $13 for students, under 18s free.

Proof of full vaccination, or medical exemption, as well a CBR Check In are required.

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably! Bush dancing is great exercise, and it is a good workout, and so don’t overdress. Even if it is cool you probably won’t want to wear a jumper or long sleeves while dancing. Layers of clothing work well, just as in Cross-Country skiing. Women often enjoy dancing in a skirt, as skirts flow to the music. Casual shirts are common dress. Don’t worry about what to wear – there is no special costume, just be comfortable. You probably will get warm as you dance.

What about shoes?

Since we dance on hardwood floors, many people bring a separate pair of shoes from the ones they wear to the dance. Clean off any grit from outside that might be on the soles of your shoes and could damage the floor. If possible, it is preferable not to dance in shoes with rubber soles, as these are harder on your joints – ankles, knees and hips in the long run. But people have danced in joggers, tennis shoes or whatever. The main thing is that your shoes are comfortable for you for active dancing. This normally means flat, comfortable shoes with smooth soles.
