Family Bush Dance
4th May 2024 7.30pm until 10.30pm




The VFMC has a family bush dance on the first Saturday of each month (excluding January). Dances are called so these events are suitable for all ages. A different band is featured each month and everyone is welcome.

Ringwood East Senior Citizens Hall

Melway ref. 50B8

Light supper provided. A plate to share would be appreciated.
No alcohol please.

Next Children's Dance

We regret that the Children's Dances are currently suspended. The VFMC is committed to encouraging the next generations of folkies to participate in all aspects of 'folk' but at this time, lack of participation makes it impossible to run these introductory dances for young people.

The start time for our monthly Family Bush Dances has been brought forward by 30 minutes in an effort to make the events more family friendly. Please come along and bring your young people.

The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band

The Billabong Band is the Victorian Folk Music Club's own performance group and is probably the longest established band in Australia playing traditional music for Bush / Colonial dances and for concerts. The line-up is variable and depends on which musicians are available at the time.

An evening of dancing in the traditional style, featuring great live music.
Full details pending.

Corona Virus Arrangements

We thank every dancer who has joined us via Zoom to dance solo or with just their partner over the last 18 months. We have all made new friends around the world, and we value that experience.

VFMC are delighted to see a return to face-to-face dance events subject to current Government restrictions and our Covid safe plan .
