We can adapt to your needs and circumstances.
However as a guideline, we offer two main kinds of program.
1. Family Bush Dance
We have played for thousands of events of this kind over the last 3 decades. We include include popular Shenanigans originals such as Highway Number One and, evergreen dances like Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance, and other folk dances much enjoyed by children and adults alike.

2. Community Christian Dance
This is a new initiative under development with with Stairway Church, Vermont. It is based on a program pioneered at St John’s churches in Malvern and Upper Beaconsfield, and the Brimbank Salvation Army.
