Rock 'n' roll moves to new heights

Rhonda Bonner and her husband Robert have been rock ’n’ roll dancing for 17 years at the same venue, so they’re very much looking forward to when Summerland Rockers moves to a new home.

As of next week the Summerland Rockers will hold their rock ‘n’ roll classes at the Lismore Workers Heights Bowling Club and they will now be held on Monday and Thursday, replacing the traditional program of Tuesday and Thursday.

Rhonda said while it’s exciting to be at a new venue, once you start dancing it doesn’t really matter where you are because you’re soon a world away.

“I just love to dance and love meeting people – I’ve made lots of friends over the years,” Rhonda said. “Now Robert and I teach dancing and it’s wonderful to see new dancers when the penny drops after a few lessons and they just get it. Once you see a couple get confident with their dancing then they go out on the floor and really enjoy themselves.”

Rhonda encouraged couples to come and give the Summerland Rockers a go, even if they’ve never danced before.

“They’re not cramping anyone’s style – we love having new members,” Rhonda said. “There’s always someone willing to show you a move or give you a hand. It’s very friendly and relaxed – there’s no hard and fast rules.”

Summerland Rockers dance classes will begin at the Lismore Heights Bowling Club next Monday, April 12, and will then be held every Monday and Thursday from 7.30pm. Simply turn up on the night or for more information phone Rhonda on 6629 8267.
