Dancing in the Park is a wonderful way to spend Monday evenings during December 2017 and January 2018.

Live music and experienced dance-callers support an enjoyable program of bush and heritage dances, suitable for beginners through to seasoned dancers. All dances will be taught and called, so no prior dance experience is necessary.

Kids enjoy it too, so there's one answer to "what is there to do in the school holidays?"

Musicians are also welcome: if you don't have the music, just look over somebody's shoulder.

It's usually warm to hot during summer, so bring water or other drink - there is a tap to refill bottles.


Stage '88 in Commonwealth Park >Show me where that is....

Stage '88 is under cover and in shade by the time we start, so we dance come rain or shine. In the event of rain, wear footwear suitable to cross the lawns (which may be quite wet), and change into your dance shoes at the stage. Bring a brolly too.


Mondays in December 2017 and January 2018, except Dec 25 and Jan 1, starting at 6:45pm and finishing at sundown.

Pre Dance Picnic

Join us for a BYO everything picnic before the dancing, starting about 5:30pm (although most folk arrive around 6pm) at the pergola near Regatta Point. There are tables and seating available, plus BBQs.

Party Night - 29 January

On the final evening of the season we invite dancers, musicians and spectators to stay on for a sociable gathering after the dancing. Bring food and/or drink to share, your own cup, and if you can manage it also bring chairs, table, lantern or other light source, insect repellent and plenty of good conversation.

A FREE event organised by the Monaro Folk Society for the public.
