CAIRNS BALLROOM DANCERS CLUB

We are a local club whose members run a dance in Cairns every couple of weeks.

Visitors are Always Welcome!

Special Dances

In addition to our regular dances the club holds a few special dances during the year.
The first dance of the year is usually the Australia Day dance. Music for this night is very much Australian themed, items for supper have a distinct Australia slant and the Hall and peoples clothing are Australian themed. This is usually a very popular night firstly because of the occasion and secondly because it is the first dance since before Christmas.
The Annual Ball is usually held in August and is a catered event. Everybody dresses more formally for the occasion; a sit-down meal is provided, and a good deal of effort is made to decorate the Hall for the night. Because this is a catered event and usually very popular it is restricted to club members and ticket numbers are limited. This event is always eagerly looked forward to.
The last dance of the year is our Christmas breakup dance which is usually held in the middle of December. The theme of course is Christmas with the music, food, clothing and decorations reflecting the occasion.
During the year there are usually a couple of special theme dances where the music and Hall decorations are chosen to reflect the theme of the night. Memorable theme dances in the past have included “ABBA”, “Movies”, “Roaring Twenties” and “Latin”. Theme nights are always a-lot of fun and everybody appreciates the effort put in by the DJ and the organising committee to make these nights memorable. People go to some considerable effort to wear clothing or a costume reflecting the theme, sometimes members are almost unrecognisable, but everybody has a lot of fun and we have some great photos and memories of these nights.
