Daz­zling debs

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

Af­ter two months of train­ing, the sec­ond group of De­niliquin debu­tantes and their part­ners will make their de­but at the De­niliquin RSL Club to­mor­row night.

Fif­teen cou­ples will take part, fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of the 14 who made their de­but last Satur­day night.

Un­der dance in­struc­tor Vicki Ack­ers, the 29 cou­ples have learnt five dances which in­clude a waltz, a pro­gres­sive samba and the cha, cha, cha.

Mrs Ack­ers also chore­ographed a spe­cial group dance for each ball, in­spired by Michael Jack­son’s hit song ‘Thriller’.

She said the fi­nal re­hearsal for the fi­nal ball will be held this af­ter­noon.

Mrs Ack­ers said she has en­joyed pre­par­ing for both events with the young peo­ple, who have ‘‘all been won­der­ful in help­ing each other’’.

‘‘The only rea­son we have two balls is be­cause there are too many cou­ples to fit into one night, and we al­ways try to keep the dances the same be­tween the two,’’ she said.

‘‘All the cou­ples get tick­ets to at­tend each other’s ball, and it’s great they come and sup­port each other.’’

Cou­ples tak­ing part in this Satur­day’s ball will meet ear­lier in the day to have a se­ries of pro­fes­sional pho­to­graphs taken at Na­vo­rina Nurs­ing Home.

De­signed to fos­ter a con­nec­tion be­tween the cou­ples and their com­mu­nity, the new tra­di­tion is also a treat for the nurs­ing home’s res­i­dents who rel­ish the change to see the young peo­ple in their ball at­tire.

More pho­tos from the deb balls will ap­pear in a spe­cial spread in next Fri­day’s edi­tion. If you would like your photo in­cluded, please send to zoe.mc­maugh@denipt.com.au.

Shelby Tag­gert and Tyler Rosendale and their deb part­ners Will Begg and Char­lie Tasker stopped for a photo in Deni’s War­ing Gar­dens be­fore last Satur­day’s ball.
