The Canberra Bushdance is held in Canberra every November 2017 at the Yarralumla Woolshed. It's Canberra’s largest LGBTI event and has been held for over 30 years.
Held at the Yarralumla Woolshed, it is a fun night of dancing with people of all flavours. There is a bar, BBQ and a live band to lead you through those dances that you might remember from primary school – like Strip the Willow, The Waves of Bondi, crazy polkas and some more genteel promenades.
By the end of the night, you’ll have danced with everyone, caught up with old friends, made some new ones and helped raise cash for the LGBTI community.
Have fun with your Bushdance outfit. It’s a night of singlets, jeans, twirling dresses, chaps, check shirts, rhinestones, akubras, hats and boots. Anything is fine, but it does get hot in there. We suggest you don’t wear heels or open shoes – your feet will take a beating!
So dust off your hat, polish your boots and get ready to kick up some dust.
Bushdance is a community fundraiser coordinated by Pink Tennis - Canberra Gay and Lesbian Tennis Club. Please note, this is an event for adults 18+.
Our 2022 event will only be held if Covid restrictions allow us to have sufficient attendees to make the Bushdance financially viable.
