DANCE away the winter chill in Melbourne this Friday as part of the new free event The 1st Friday Dance Club. Danielle Frezzetto gives you the steps.

First Friday Dance Club, Melbourne, Queensbridge Square

Each month, anyone in Melbourne can come into the city and learn a dance with skilled dancing groups.

This Friday July 6, Melbourne based dance extravaganza The Salsa Foundation will take to the floor encouraging the community of Melbourne to show off their best salsa moves, as part of a collaboration event between Ausdance Victoria and the City of Melbourne.

The club, led by community and professional dance groups, teaches friends and families alike a new routine in a new genre each month at free public gatherings in Queensbridge Square.

This month’s gathering will feature Salsa.

Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the 1st Friday Dance Club initiative was inspired by similar events taking place in many Chinese cities where citizens gather in public places to dance.

“This is a fun and energetic way to enjoy the city in winter. These free classes are for everyone. You don’t need to have any dance experience and it’s a great family friendly way to enjoy the city and meet new people,” he said.

Surprised by last month’s turn out, Cr Doyle has encouraged all to attend the fun event.

“Last month, Natya Bollywood’s event attracted almost 600 people to Queensbridge Square. Even on a chilly Melbourne winter night, people gathered for the energetic, vibrant and free dance experience,” he said.

“The 1st Friday Dance Club is a great way to get people together, get people outdoors and get people dancing. The more people that get involved, the more fun it becomes.”

In the coming months the dance program will include diverse styles such as ballroom and disco.

Don’t miss Salsa at the 1st Friday Dance Club this Friday July 6 from 6 to 8pm at Queensbridge Square (Southbank Boulevard). For more information, visit the City of Melbourne’s website
