The ballroom dancers of the South Burnett flocked to Inverlaw’s Farmers Hall over the weekend, determined to ring in the springtime season in style through a night of spirited swinging, jiving and twirling.

Following on from the Hall’s successful 100th anniversary dance party in June as well as three prior events in 2021, the Saturday 9 October event saw scores of eager dancers of all ages attend the historic venue on Kingaroy Burrandowran Road to celebrate Spring.

Dave Muller, the President of the Inverlaw Hall, provided the music for the night via stunning melodies on the keyboard, with his one-man band Mystique effortlessly switching the mood and style from fast-paced rock ‘n roll riffs to graceful waltzes throughout the multiple-hour event.

The Spring Ball saw the crowning of a king and queen as well as a belle, with the honours going to Bob Gregory and Kate Daniel and Emma Nagy respectively.

The next event at Inverlaw Hall, a ‘Shades of Country’ dance, is set for 6 November, after which the dancers will gather for one last time for the year on 4 December to celebrate Christmas.
