Wests Nelson Bay

About us imageAbout us image

Line Dancing started in the bay in 1996. We danced at different venues in the area with no guarantee of a dance floor from week to week. We then began dancing at Nelson Bay RSL and we successfully applied to become an Intra Club the year 2000 which enabled the group to have a permanent venue and home base.

Line Dancing is a great sport bringing people together, exercising, meeting new friends and attending many social events Our Line Dance Club is a non-profit club run by a committee of volunteers.

These days Bay Bootscooters teaches dances to different types of music. While we still dance to country music, line dancing now includes songs from the top 20 and even waltzes.

We are a small, friendly group who have wonderful facilities in which to hold our dance classes and socials thanks to the ongoing support of Management and Staff of Wests Nelson Bay.
