Dancers from the around the South West tangoed into the Uduc Hall earlier this month for their annual Spring Dance.

The theme was a touch of pink and attendees donned 50 shades of fuchsia to mark the occasion.

The seniors bopped non-stop until midnight, but luckily no hips were broken.

One of the dancers Ray Matthews is two weeks shy of his 100th birthday, but remarkably stayed until the very last dance.

Ray Matthews still attends the dances, despite being two-weeks shy of 100.

Organiser Brian Kealley was delighted with the turn out.

“We didn’t get as many people as last year, but more and more people are feeling confident to start going out again in WA after COVID-19,” he said.

“It has been great to start socialising again after the break.”
