Parkes residents are being given the chance to take steps at learning to dance in time for the Parkes Elvis Festival and raise funds for country kids.
Central West NSW Dance Sport Academy’s Stan and Stela Alexander are donating their professional services during December to teach locals to dance with all money going to the Royal Far West.
Parkes Leagues Club is supporting this event by providing free use of their venue all through the month of December.
Stan and Stela will teach participants all the dances that may be danced to music from the Rock ‘n’ Roll era, all Elvis songs in particular, but also other artists of the 50-60’s period.
The dances also fit the music of today, so it’s loads of fun for all the family to join for the most amazing time for a very good and relevant cause, Royal Far West, and in process you learn to dance for the Elvis Festival and beyond.
Cost is just a $10 donation for adults, (kids and teens $5) with these donations passed to the Royal Far West to help country kids have a brighter Christmas.
The classes will be held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday during December starting Tuesday, December 1 through to Friday, December 28 at 7pm in the Leagues Club Bistro Lounge.
Your newfound talent will then be celebrated at a New Year’s Eve party with a live band at Parkes Leagues Club on Monday December 31 from 6:30pm till next year.
All donations received for from the December dance classes and other funds raised through sponsorships and/or raffles generating proceeds from this event will be presented to the Sunshine Club during the evening.
Royal Far West has been assisting and supporting country children from local and remote communities for 90 years.
During the New Years Eve Party, the Sunshine Club will be present to receive funds raised from this promotion to go directly to Royal Far West.
