Dancing for the rain our farmers desperately need

GLENORE Grove Dance Hall will this Saturday be hoping to bring about some rain, when they host a dance in aid of the drought appeal.

During the night attendees will be performing a rain-dance in hopes of bringing some much-needed precipitation to our dry lands.

Glenore Grove Hall Committee vice-president George Frampton said the dance had been written just for this event.

"Les Andrews has written a dance, and he's called it a 'Rain-dance Rumba'... which reflects the type of rain all our farmers would like to see - slow, steady and continuous,” Mr Frampton explained.

He encouraged everyone to get involved even if they'd never danced before, with attendees invited to come early for a lesson on the Rain-dance Rumba taking place at 6.30pm before the main dance kicks off.

"Who knows - the magic of doing something different might happen to bring some rain,” he said.

Even if the rain dance doesn't work, the committee will still be helping our farmers - with all proceeds going to the Western Queensland Drought Appeal.

A supper is included in the $10 door fee and a raffle will also be run.

Mr Frampton said it would be an enjoyable night for all to get involved in.

"Even if you can't dance - I'm sure you can get $10 worth out of a good supper, good music and good company,” he said.
