1950s Dinner Dance

September 17, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm


Gen1950's Dinner Dancets…find the Brylcreem (www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6F4GtyRfto).
Ladies…pull up your bobby socks. Grab a pal as we head back to the era of Buddy Holly and the Andrews Sisters! If you know the music you’re going to have a great time! If you don’t know the music it’s about time you got acquainted! We’ll be rockin’ and swingin’ the night away with our live band, Dick Smither’s and The Doo-Wops. And don’t worry if you can’t dance, the Sydney Swing Kats will be there to show you the moves.

And where is this blast into the past going to take place? The local community hall? The downtown milkbar? The school gymnasium? No, no and no. We are heading to the heritage listed Crystal Palace Ballroom within the iconic Luna Park on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour.

But it’s not just dancing with great views. There is food and drink! A delicious three course dinner with an alcohol package included.

The 1950s Dinner Dance is also the highlight of our Catholic Singles Conference which is taking place that weekend, but this event is open to EVERYONE, even if you are not a part of the conference. Whether you have a dance partner or not, whether you are young or old, come along for an evening of dinner, drinks and dancing. All are welcome, single, married and everyone in between.
