We're so excited to welcome to the dance stage, power trios Genticorum (Quebec, Canada) and Faustus (UK) as well as the Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra (Canada) and a host of other great acts from Tasmania and around Australia.
From the opening bush dance with the Tassie Devil's Own to the Quebecois Grand Finale with Genticorum, festival goers in our dedicated dance venue, the Town Hall, will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of exhilarating dances from many cultures, all taught so that no dancing experience is required (and you don't need to be bring a partner either).
Other dance styles covered include Appalachian squares, Argentinian Tango, Georgian, contra, renaissance, Swing, Balkan, First Nations, Irish and Steampunk.
For the year of Scotland in Australia we'll also showcase Scottish Ceilidh and Country Dancing.
Travel the world on two feet in one weekend, with a light heart and a big smile!
Bring a refillable water bottle. It'll be a workout.
So, if you want to take the weight off your shoulders and get your smile on, give it a go. If in doubt, dance!
