28-04-2018

 

Melbourne's Moomba 2018 was a fantastic event to feature DanceSport. DanceSport was viewed by big crowds at the Moomba parade on Monday 12 March 2018.

 

Dancing for the King and Queen of Moomba

Prior to the parade, the King and Queen of Moomba were welcomed by a showcase performed by our very own Australian Junior champions, Sam Brown and Berkley Wood.

Approximately 50 dancers from all over Victoria represented our sport on Victoria’s Labour Day Weekend (10-12 March).

Moomba, Australia’s biggest community festival, stretched for a kilometre – with representations of the state’s culture. The Parade included participation from the Chinese community with dragons, new and vintage emergency service vehicles, and a float carrying the Queen and King of Moomba, Chrissie Swan and Jimmy Giggle.

DanceSport seized upon the invitation to promote our sport by including Advanced through to Beginner level dancers. At the last minute, we persuaded the Melba College band – experienced Anzac parade performers – to play for us and they kindly obliged.

"We began practising in January", Geoff Vine, Chairman of Marketing Commision DSA, commented. "The training was necessary to nail the routines. As we were such a big group this year – we had to split the training over two different studios and on different days – to cater for our volunteers. The crowd reaction to our routines (Samba, La Bomba and Cha Cha) was sensational. We just couldn’t stop smiling, such was the applause along the Parade. At the end of the morning we were on a high, even if our feet were feeling the pressure of performing on bitumen."

Registrations of interest for 2019 will be taken by Geoff Vine later in the year. Just visit the DanceSport Moomba website.

 

Floorshow for Moomba

Along with the live telecast of the Parade, Moomba asked DanceSport to put on a three-hour showcase on the afternoon of the parade. Some of our top Victorian couples gave a terrific performance. As part of the showcase, we included a dance lesson for the general public.
