Shepparton News - - NEWS - By Madeleine Cac­cian­iga

The Cool Cat Rock­ers are start­ing be­gin­ner dance les­sons next month and they are en­cour­ag­ing more peo­ple to take up rock ’n’ roll danc­ing.

Cool Cats dancer Kaye Rossignoli said each year the group ex­tended a warm wel­come to be­gin­ners who would like to learn 1950s and 1960s rock ’n’ roll.

‘‘There’s a very so­cial and friendly at­mos­phere,’’ she said.

The group’s reg­u­lar weekly dance les­sons will start on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 12, at Shep­par­ton’s Wes­ley Hall from 7 pm, and meet­ing at the same time and place ev­ery Tues­day.

Ms Rossignoli said the dance style was per­fect for be­gin­ners be­cause no part­ner was re­quired.

‘‘They will start you slowly from the be­gin­ning, as­sum­ing you don’t know a step,’’ she said.

‘‘They also know some of you will have more than two left feet and that’s fine.’’

The Cool Cats will host their first big dance for the year on Fe­bru­ary 16 from 8 pm at Shep­par­ton High School, fea­tur­ing Mel­bourne band Jump ‘n’ Jive.

‘‘Rock ’n’ roll is a pas­time that com­bines the art of socialising, mak­ing new friends, hav­ing fun, whilst also keep­ing fit,’’ Ms Rossignoli said.

Dance les­sons with the Cool Cat Rock­ers cost $10 each week and are ev­ery Tues­day from 7 pm at Wes­ley Hall, 134 Maude St, Shep­par­ton, be­gin­ning on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 12. ● For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Rob Rossignoli on 0403 973 946 or Stuart Barnes on 0408 535 610 or to buy tick­ets for the dance event, phone Peter Kelly 0408 136 415.
