Social Dance – Dip your toe in!

Cowaramup Hall

Spend the day cruising around. Check out the beaches, head out on a forest walk, indulge in a winery or lunch venue…we have MANY to choose from (though we highly recommend booking in advance) But, leave your night free for dancing! Frock or suit up and dance because we are back at Cowaramup Hall for a night of live music with The RiverBugs and DJ Dan Carruthers.

This newly renovated, heritage listed hall was built in 1930. The opening was celebrated with a ball, and what better way to celebrate the renovations than with a Swing Dance social! It’s located right in the centre of the very cute Cow-town (if you were looking for an easy way to pronounce it!) located 10 minutes drive from Margaret River.

The Span: 7pm – 11pm
The Location: Hall Road, Cowaramup
The Spread: BYO food and drinks. None available to purchase. Please bring your own drink bottle.
