Keith Wood - Dance Workshops

Throughout the year I run a monthly series of dance workshops at Pennant Hills. The style of dance varies between Contras, dances that I've written, and English Country dances. Although generally fairly easy, some of my dances are quite complex and are better suited to more experienced dancers.

The workshops are held on Sunday afternoons between 2:15 and 5:15pm in the Main Hall at the Pennant Hills Community Centre, 70 Yarrara Rd, Pennant Hills, NSW. A $10 donation is suggested to help cover costs. Afterwards we usually go down to the Hotel Pennant Hills for dinner together.

Under the auspices of Dance Kaleidoscope.

The schedule for 2024 is:
