Bring­ing boo­gie back to beach

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

BOO­GIE nights are com­ing back to Air­lie Beach with 70s Night at the Whit­sun­day Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre.

Cor­rine Hen­drikse-Vinci, Nadene Al­lan and Lisa Stan­ley will be wow­ing crowds with their im­pres­sive vo­cals, sup­ported by Ms Hen­drik­seVinci’s pupils from Proser­pine State High School.

“I just think it’s nice to have lo­cals en­ter­tain­ing lo­cals,” Ms Hen­drikse-Vinci said.

“A lot of peo­ple love the sev­en­ties and it’s just some­thing else to do other than just the main street.”

Pa­trons are en­cour­aged to get into their best 70s dress and boo­gie down on the dance floor.

The WACC is pro­vid­ing a prize for best-dressed and best sev­en­ties dancer.

The show is set to be an in­ti­mate af­fair fol­lowed by a danc­ing free-for-all.

“For the show I want an in­ti­mate sort of cafe feel and then as soon as the show’s fin­ished just a 1970s mu­sic and danc­ing night,” Ms Hen­drikse-Vinci said.

Ms Hen­drikse-Vinci said the night was also a chance for the whole fam­ily to go out.

“We need to of­fer some­where that par­ents can bring their teenage kids or their 10 or 11-year-olds,” she said.

“My daugh­ter is com­ing and my grand­kids are com­ing and my mum is com­ing so there’ll be four gen­er­a­tions here.”
