We must remember that most of our dancers in the Rock n Roll scene are in their 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, and are in the  vulnerable group, so if anyone has any symptoms (even if it's 'just a cold') please stay home to protect everyone else.

Bleach Festival

August 12-14th

3 day Country Music Festival called Giddy Up Sandgate

Get ready to line dance Sandgate, the country is coming to town!

The Sandgate Bayside Chamber of Commerce is putting on the 4017’s first ever country music festival, called Giddy Up Sandgate.


Chamber president, Bill Gollan, said it would be something different for the northside.


“We know the locals love our other festivals and events during the year, and we were looking for something to put on during the cooler months,” he said.


“And we thought we would go for something that people wouldn’t expect from a bayside town – country music.”


The chamber already runs the Bluewater Festival, the Long Table event at the Shorncliffe Pier, and the popular Christmas event, Jingle All the Bay.


The new country music festival, run over three days in August, will feature live music at most of the 4017’s local venues, as well as country-themed food and events including a mechanical bull.


“We had a meeting with all the hospitality businesses in the area and they were so keen on this, they said, ‘let’s do it!’,” Bill said.


All our venues will have different types of country music acts, and we’re asking everyone to dress up country as well. So get out your hats, your boots, and your flannel shirts.”


Giddy Up Sandgate will also feature a scarecrow building competition for locals and businesses.


While Bill said the festival “would not quite be at Tamworth level just yet” – referring to the national country music festival run in regional NSW each year – he hoped it would become another beloved annual event in the Bayside.


“We would like to see this run every year,” he said.


“The cool weather is no excuse for people not to come out. You’ll be warmed up by the music and the atmosphere!”


For more information on Giddy Up Sandgate, search Facebook for the Sandgate Bayside Chamber of Commerce page, or go to: www.sandgatebayside.com.au

Pam and Roy Blowers have been creating a portfolio of online utube dance lessons and will be continuing to add to the collection.

The concept behind our online utube dance lessons is - mixing styles and steps according to one's level of fitness and physical ability.

We have created a facebook page, which lists all our utube videos, (see link under Classes page) - we are up to Utube 21 and will be continuing to add to our collection.  

Here is the link to our facebook page.

DANCE FLOOR COURTESY

Here is the Gold Coast Rockers Etiquette on the Dance Floor:

1.     Wear clothing and dance shoes that make it easy and enjoyable to dance in.

2.     Personal Grooming - Shower and use a deodorant. Always take a hand towel, deodorant and a clean shirt to freshen up.  

         Brush teeth and use mouthwash or breath freshener. Abstain from foods that produce strong odours eg. garlic. The odour

         of cigarettes on one's breath or clothing is unattractive.

3.      Please ask ladies: Would you like to dance?

4.      Please ask men: Would you like to dance?

5.      Declining to dance: No thank you, I'm taking a break.

6.     Sharing the floor: If there is a mixture of dance styles on the floor, ballroom or circle partner dancers have the outside

         circle heading in an anti-clockwise direction.  Rock n Roll dancing is in the middle, Swing on the side.

7.     Dips and Lifts: The only thing to be said about aerials on the social dance floor is: Don't do them. While they may look 'cool'

         the execution of aerials requires training by a qualified instructor. Don't do them by yourself unless you are trained, and

         certainly don't do them on the social dance floor.

8.     Today's beginners will be the good dancers of tomorrow, so be nice to them and dance with them.

9.     Smile, be warm, be personable, be nice.

10.     Be considerate of other couples on the floor. Exercise good floor craft.  No large steps to be taken, dancing should be

         done in a 3 ft circumference.

11.     No stilettos to be worn on the dance floor.

12.       Be happy, be social and have FUN
