WHAT'S A BUSH DANCE?
A Bush dance is an
Australian style that evolved from traditional folk dances from the
UK in the early years of settlement. In general, they
place less emphasis on footwork and more on being in the right place at
the right time. A bush dance brings families and friends, even strangers
both young and old together for a rip-roaring time. We usually
precede an evening's bush dance with an afternoon workshop for an hour or so to give
everyone some experience in what to expect. It is amazing how
quickly everyone picks it up in our workshop.
Martin Frohlich and Greg Frohlich who are retired school principles are our Bush Dance experts who have been doing (and still do) bush dances as "The Frohlich Bros" for many years before joining The Settlers.
