Key Facts

There are no structured teams in our HonkyTonk event. Instead, the size of the groups will change depending on the style of each dance. Our facilitator will call for a range of different pairings – solo, partnered, small groups or whole group involvement!

All dances are taught and ‘called’ by our facilitator on the night.

Music ranges from American country and western– Dolly, Kenny and Johnny– to Australian classics done in our own style that pays homage to great Australian artists and bands such as Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes, the Easybeats, Men at Work, AC/DC and many others.

This event can be tailored to suit your time frame, budget and location.

Our HonkyTonk is well suited to any style of event whether it be a sit-down meal or cocktail style.

We definitely encourage your group to dress up in a Country and Western theme! This adds a great energy to the night and ensures your delegates will look the part as they dance the night away as a whole group.
