BUSH AND COLONIAL DANCING

Bush dancing is always fun and the Festival always has a session here and there. The Program released in July will provide details of the relevant bush dance session/s.

Past bush dances have been led by the MFS Bush Capital Band, Frankly B Paverty and Bushland Boogie.



Bush dancing has been an Australian tradition for over 200 years, originating from a mix of Irish, Scottish and English folk dances. The monthly or annual bush dance is still a feature of many regional communities and a lot of fun. Many reel and jig type dances are called by band leaders whilst more formal colonial forms are very elegant and a great spectacle.
