Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

DANCE fever has hit Gayn­dah’s AOG Church.

Ev­ery Mon­day night a ded­i­cated group of movers and shak­ers learns a va­ri­ety of dances from the North Bur­nett’s own Lord of the Dance, Nigel Reed.

Mr Reed has been teach­ing dance for 15 years and has brought his knowl­edge of the cha cha, rumba and fox­trot to the peo­ple of Gayn­dah.

Mr Reed teaches three dances in a night, tak­ing 45 min­utes per ses­sion.

Other dances taught in­clude the salsa, merengue and rock’n’roll.

“The em­pha­sis is on hav­ing some fun and learn­ing some dance,” Mr Reed said. “There are no com­pli­cated pat­terns. The guys can lead the steps in any or­der they like.”

“Ev­ery­one has been do­ing a great job.”

The danc­ing starts at 6pm on Mon­day evenings, cost­ing $10 a dance or $20 to learn all three. To join the fun, contact the AOG church on 4161 1713.
