Top End Ballroom
by Vic Whitehurst
Top End Ballroom is a new ballroom dancing group based in Palmerston.
Our next dance is scheduled for Sat 17 Oct 2020 at Nightcliff Comm Ctr from 7.00pm - 10.00pm.
Hope to see you all there.
Vic & Elin
Top End Ballroom for the time being are running the dances at:
Nightcliff Community Centre, Bohemia St. Nightcliff
1st and 3rd Saturday nights of the month from 7pm to 10pm.
The group was formed by two Palmerston residents with the aim of bringing ballroom dancing back to the area.
Our first official dance was held on Sat 4 July 2020 at the new venue.
Those that did attend enjoyed some great music by Stephen (thank you) and had the whole floor to themselves.
This is the hall where we will be dancing from now on.
As you can see it is in front of the new Palmerston Police Complex.
Next dance is on Sat 18 July from 3.00pm - 5.30pm.
Hope you will support Elin as I will be away. Cheers Vic”
Dances will commence at 3.30pm & conclude at 6.00pm.
Prior to the social session - 2.30pm to 3.30pm - there will be some teaching undertaken by a professional dance person.
These sessions will/may include -
Fine tuning of some dancing techniques
Learning a totally new dance
Please contact Vic 0412 766 703 or Elin 0403 251 704 for dates when these sessions are scheduled.
Come along to the learning session & stay for the social session afterwards or alternatively attend the social dance only.
The dance is at the new Community Dance Hall, which stands between the Medical Clinic and the Police Station, in Cook Street, Farrar.
HOW TO FIND IT
Apparently some people couldn’t find the hall at the last dance, but the map shows that if you are travelling from Darwin area south, on Roystonia Avenue just cross over Temple Terrace at Palmerston, continue down and take the first turn left at Gurd Street, which leads into the Cook Street roundabout. Be careful, don’t end up at the Aged Care Home (which has a beautiful design and layout).
