Australian Bush Dancing.
The Wongawilli Colonial Dancers have been in existence since 1987 and with the band WONGAWILLI perform demonstrations of Australian colonial and bush dancing. The aim of the group is to preserve Australia's rich heritage of music and dancing. The routines are sequences of dances based on the various mainstream social dances from the bush and towns of this and last century and dances introduced in the Folk Revival of the 1950s. The visual effect of the costumed dancers combined with the live music from the band provide a very colourful and entertaining potrayal of Australian pioneering social life.

Marilyn, probably just a little faster. ♥♥♥

mariolyn

Is it similar to square dancing?

ulangariver

Marina, so true, we don't want to lose these traditional dances. ♥♥♥

It's lovely to revive the past and keep reminding to the younger generation. I like the idea very much.

Bev, it puts a smile not only on the faces of those who participate but those who watch as well. ♥♥♥

Deanna, our bush dancing and folk music only goes back a couple of hundred years, whilst your dances and culture has been honed over centuries. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Linda, it is a lot of fun. ♥♥♥

Nev.
It sounds like a barrel of fun.!!!

Deanna

Nev, thank you for the additional information. I understand that, every "folk" music and dance has its roots that go deep into the past. I live in a region where these traditions have been very strong for many centuries and many people are dedicated to folk music and dance. Every year there are summer festivals attended by people from all over Europe. The composersof classic music drew ideas for their works right here. Therefore, it is gratifying for me to see that these traditions are maintained in Australia ♥:))
Donna thank you very much for the link and I'm glad you agreed with my thoughts ♥:))

Janet, we're delighted to hear that report. You mean he's a good chance of winning the Walk at the Olympics? Put five dollars on him for me, please. :-)))
Jokes aside, great to hear. Give him our best. ♥♥♥

Bev, it's much faster and more active than a Barn Dance. ♥♥♥

@jan42ful
Great news jan. Happy for Julian and also for you.

Julian is doing so well Nev and has a 30 minute walk each day. At his physio yesterday they said that he's doing much better than a lot of people at his stage after the op. 4 weeks ago yesterday.
Hugs ♥♥♥

Like an old fashioned Barn Dance and Do si Do and around you go.
Fun times and thank you Nev.

Jackie, bush dancing is very popular in Australia. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Janet, great to hear that it is taught in schools too. Children pick it up quite easily.
Is that young fellow of yours in training for the Olympics, with all that walking? :-))) ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Donna, they even hold bush dances in the suburbs here. It's not always held out in the country areas. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Marina, it shows another aspect of our Aussie life here. And it's good fun too. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Bobbie, bush dances are often held here in Australia, and they are always well attended. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Ardy, the music could be called "rollicking good fun", and I'm pleased that younger generations are being introduced to it too. ♥♥♥

ulangariver

Plum, and Robbie,
what a good pair you'd make on the dance floor. :-)))

ulangariver

Ianto, it is very "active" dancing, and lots of fun to do. ♥♥♥

Deanna, bush dancing is very popular here in Oz, and enjoyed by many. Much of the music is from the early pioneering days in Australia, and some of that is based on English/Irish jigs and reels. ♥♥♥

Very nice puzzle Nev, Thank you.

jan42ful

Hi Nev, lovely to see this. We often taught the children at school "Bush dancing" and they loved it. Just came by to say hello and check your puzzles. Hugs to you and to Marge with tickles to Barry. ♥♥♥
