In the tradition of not-to-be-missed community dances of old, Finucane & Smith’s Dance Hall is the supper dance of the year. An unmissable night out, it shines a glittering spotlight on local talents, showcases world famous exhibition dance and song from around the world, feasts on local specialties under lanterns and bunting, and sweeps the whole community into line dances, Ethiopian shimmy and a spot of Bollywood before busting out ABBA!

Finucane & Smith’s Dance Hall  is a supper dance, a bring-a-plate celebration, a storytelling and dance teaching extravaganza, a transcendent night of song and dance (from international stars to the local community) and a whole of community knees-up, showcasing the bounty of Victorian communities in a new light.
