DANCING IN THE DARK 2023
Bill’s Ballroom, located in Lake Macquarie, Hunter Region, recently reached out to our Vice President Deb to express interest in holding a fund raiser for Cure Blindness Australia. The fundraiser was a lot of fun thank you Bill’s Ballroom for always being a very community minded studio who are always looking at ways to support and help make a difference.
Bill’s Ballroom is a small dance studio located in Lake Macquarie. They specialise in four styles – Ballroom, Latin, New Vogue and Classical Sequence. They currently have four coaches who run classes and private lessons, for beginners, through to high level competitors.
Sue and Bill opened the studio in 2005, and they have had students on the floor ever since. The basic principles that built the studio was the desire to offer ballroom dancing in all its standard forms to people from a variety of backgrounds and areas, and of all ages. Secondly, they want to provide a platform where anyone can learn socially then develop their skills to the bet of their ability. Finally, we aim to provide an atmosphere where all dancers can mix freely.
Over the years, there have been many successes, with hundreds of students undertaking our medal assessment program, and competing in competitions across the country.
Through all this, family and friendship have been the focus of the Studio. These tenets have bound the Studio together with so much genuine support at medal days and competitions for all participants. They are especially impressed in the involvement of multiple generations of families, as it is so heart-warming to see children dancing with their parents and grandparents. This is what Ballroom Dancing is all about – a fun activity that can be enjoyed throughout life by everyone.
