Bringing boogie back to beach
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.”
