Get in line and join Cowboys
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.”
