June Dance details

NTBDA aims to promote Ballroom Dancing for all in the Northern Territory.

Ballroom dancing covers a number of styles such as Modern, Old Time, Latin and New Vogue. The aim of all NTBDA dances is to give all dancers regular dates, times and places to practice and enjoy their dancing and to meet new people.

NTBDA also aims to showcase Ballroom and New Vogue Dancing to the broader community and to attract people to, or back to dancing. The dance programs will include some "Come & try" progressive dances of Jive, Samba, Barn Dances, Evening Three Step, etc where current dancers will try to pass on their skills to others.
Other dance steps will include the Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Modern Waltz, Slow and Quick Rythymn, etc. Sequence dances will include the Mayfair and Brecken Quickstep, Balmoral and Barclay Blues, Carousel, Sindy and Spindle Swing, Emmerdale and Alpha Waltz, Tangoette and Tango Serida plus others.

NTBDA does not provide Dance Classes, or Teaching.
If you are starting out, or interested in learning, receiving assistance or improving we are able to direct you to a person who may be able to assist with this.
Learning for Beginners and/or assistance with improvement may be arranged through lessons conducted by Audrey Grace. Audrey is a separate entity not attached to the NTBDA. Audrey and her colleague Jean are also known for their "In-Vogue Dances". For more information contact Audrey directly on Phone 08 79790945, or mobile 0438 865 160.

Easter Sunday Afternoon Dance
by: A Regular Dancer

Dancing this Easter Sunday afternoon away at the Malak Community Centre was a wonderful addition to Easter 2019. Many of our dancers fulfilled family and religious activities in the morning and came along for a very pleasant afternoon dancing to the music of the NTBDA Event Deejay & Compere, Maree Kuczborski. As always, Maree delivered a fun and lively afternoon of dancing that was very well attended and enjoyed by all. The communal afternoon tea topped off a fantastic event. Well done NTBDA and special thanks to Maree.

Black & White Themed Dance
by: Maree

What a wonderful night of dancing on 30th March at Marrara Golf Club for our Special Black & White themed dance. It was so lovely to see a big turn out of dancers all dressed in black and white and filling the dance floor. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Black & White Dance
by: Evelyn

On Saturday(past) 30 March , the NTBDA organised & presented a special dance with a Black & White Theme.

It was held at Darwin Golf Club, Links Rd, Marrara. The NTBDA,committee with helpers of Greg & Mike decorated the club dance area during the afternoon. It was very pleasing to see that the guests had also taken considerable effort to dress in Black & White.

There were some stunning outfits and many of the men really got into the spirit and added white ties and wore hats. The NTBDA Treasurer, Maree Kuczborski did an amazing job as Dee Jay at the event. Maree provided a good mix of Ballroom, Rock n Roll, Partner dances, Progressive dances and a few fun dances. Our 76 attendees were all at various times up there on the dance floor and really kicking up their heels. A number of people provided feedback that this night reminded them of the good old days when they regularly got 70 to 80 persons at every dance. We danced from 7:30pm until 11:40pm and then reluctantly had to call it a night.

Watch out for our next special dance on Wednesday 26 June 2019. at the Darwin Trailer Boat Club, East Point Rd, Fannie Bay.
Tickets will be available from Maree Kuczborski on 0437 163 224.

MALAK MASKED BALL - Very Successful Event
by: Anonymous

An insider from the event described it a fun filled,glamourous & sophisticated night out. The Venue was decorated in hues of Aqua, Turquoise & Silver and the ambience heightened by twinkling lights from the ceiling and soft candle light on the tables.
Music by Bill Roy was enthusiastically danced to.
The Scrumptious supper enjoyed with gusto, Security excellent and a great group of helpers to set up and clean up afterwards.
A big 'Well Done' to the NTBDA Committee and their support team. Word on the street is that people are keen to have another ball there next Seniors Month.

Successful NTBDA Debut At The Harbour Room, Darwin City
by: Returning Dancer

Last evening, Sat 10 Feb 2018, I was very fortunate to witness and enjoy the "Inaugural" NTBDA Monthly Dance at The Harbour Room, 2 Smith St, Darwin City.

Among 42 other dancers, we enjoyed good music, a full night of Ballroom and New Vogue dances, great company and a refreshing supper, Tea & Coffee.

We danced the night away, laughed and chatted together in a very fun, friendly environment.

Well Done to the team at NTBDA and its wonderful to have a Darwin City Ballroom Dance on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 7:30pm t 11:30pm. I can hardly wait for Saturday 10 March 2018, so we can do it all again.

Monthly Dance - 2nd Saturday each month
by: Anonymous

The inaugural monthly dance of the NTBDA was held on Saturday 9 Sep 2017 at the MALAK Community Centre, Malak Crescent, Malak.
To the music played by DJ Maree, who also proved to be a Humorous and competent MC, the dancers swayed, waltzed, cha cha'd, foxtrotted, sauntered and quick-stepped the night away. The dancers appeared to be having lots of fun during a wonderful evening of social Ballroom, New Vogue and progressive dances. Midway through the evening, all present enjoyed a well earned rest while they chatted to each other over the communal supper with their choice of tea, or coffee. Old acquaintances were renewed and new bonds formed which is part of the charm of social dancing. The first monthly dance was deemed a success and the NTBDA will continue these on the 2nd Saturday of each month.

The next NTBDA dance will be on Saturday 14 October 2017 at the MALAK Community Centre, Malak Crescent, Malak from 7:30pm until 11pm. Tickets sold at door. $10:00 per person plus bring a small plate of sweet or savoury items to share at communal supper.
Correct money will be appreciated by NTBDA because change is difficult to provide.

The monthly social dance held at the Darwin Trailer Boat Club on Sunday 24th July was a great success with many enjoying the fine outdoor setting - it was great to see a number of faces that had been absent from the scene for a while.
