Get in line and join Cow­boys

Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

IT has been 25 years since the Ur­ban Cow­boys first put on their danc­ing shoes but the group is show­ing no signs of slow­ing down.

The line danc­ing company cel­e­brated the mile­stone at its an­nual dance so­cial at Mills Park Beck­en­ham late last month.

Teacher Glenn Dale, who runs classes in Bent­ley, Rock­ing­ham and Madding­ton, said the friend­ships formed within the group had en­sured it re­mained healthy for the past 25 years.

“I think they all be­come part of the fam­ily,” he said. “Some of these peo­ple have been danc­ing from the word go.”

Mr Dale ac­knowl­edged bal­anc­ing teach­ing with his work was tough but he still loved be­ing part of the group.

“It’s a lot of work; I run four, five classes a week and it’s hard to jug­gle in be­tween full-time work,” he said. “The mu­sic we play and the challenge of learn­ing and teach­ing the dances, that gets me go­ing.”
