Get your dancing shoes on! If you are into Aussie clog dancing or would like to explore the art of dancing, the East Coast Precision will be holding a day of dance workshops called ‘Aussie Clog’ in Chermside on 9 June.

The Aussie Clog is a popular event that has been running in the Redland Bay area for 22 years. This year, they will be celebrating it in Chermside and everyone is invited to join in the fun.

Olive Borovsky established the Aussie Clog 23 years ago. She wanted to combine Australian country music with her desire to encourage more Australian choreographers. Clog dancing is a form of step dance whilst wearing wooden soled clogs. Think tap dancing but this one won’t have you “tapping” on the floor.

The workshops will take place during the day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You get to meet kindred spirits whilst you’re at it as well.

There will be dinner and social dancing from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with the Mullet Gut String Band. The social dancing will bring out some old favourites as well as current favourites from the 2018 ACA dance list. However, the registrations for dinner are now closed.

If you are interested in joining the workshops, you can email them at ecpcloggers@gmail.com.
