Feet and brains kept busy at masquerade dance

There were marvellous masks and magical music at the Masquerade in May organised by Take Your Brain Dancing.

Organiser Wendy Colhoun said it was a fun-filled night.

"There were only a few breaks between dances to give the feet a rest, but the brains didn't get any rest at all, as music maker and organiser Peter Colhoun had devised a match up activity during breaks with portraits of famous people from the past with a photo of their death masks," Ms Colhoun said.

There were chocolate prizes for winning answers and a delicious supper for everyone.

Historically masks could conceal an identity or were also used as a means of creating equality at an event where you were unknown.

A raffle on the night raised $130 for the Cancer Council. The dancers are now looking forward to the next social dancing night on June 18 where dancers can practise the dances learnt at Wednesday afternoon lessons with Peter and Wendy Colhoun.
