Dance for the rain

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

GLENORE Grove Dance Hall will this Satur­day be hop­ing to bring about some rain, when they host a dance in aid of the drought ap­peal.

Dur­ing the night at­ten­dees will be per­form­ing a rain-dance in hopes of bring­ing some much-needed pre­cip­i­ta­tion to our dry lands.

Glenore Grove Hall Com­mit­tee vice-pres­i­dent Ge­orge Framp­ton said the dance had been writ­ten just for this event.

“Les An­drews has writ­ten a dance, and he’s called it a ‘Rain-dance Rumba’... which re­flects the type of rain all our farm­ers would like to see - slow, steady and con­tin­u­ous,” Mr Framp­ton ex­plained.

He en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to get in­volved even if they’d never danced be­fore, with at­ten­dees in­vited to come early for a les­son on the Rain-dance Rumba tak­ing place at 6.30pm be­fore the main dance kicks off.

“Who knows – the magic of do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent might hap­pen to bring some rain,” he said.

Even if the rain dance doesn’t work, the com­mit­tee will still be help­ing our farm­ers – with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the West­ern Queens­land Drought Ap­peal.

A sup­per is in­cluded in the $10 door fee and a raf­fle will also be run.

Mr Framp­ton said it would be an en­joy­able night for all to get in­volved in.

“Even if you can’t dance – I’m sure you can get $10 worth out of a good sup­per, good mu­sic and good com­pany,” he said.
