  • Where are you based?
    Footloose Fun is based out of Adelaide, South Australia.
  • Do you run regular classes?
    Yes - a six-week block of classes is coming up in Adelaide in March and April 2024! DATES: Thursdays TIME: 6:30pm-8pm WHERE: Unley Community Centre, 18 Arthur St, Unley, SA, 5061 COST: Adults $15, kids $5. Cash only. No booking required. Come along each week, or pick and choose as you like! No experience needed. Head to 'winter class times' in the News section of this site for more info on class times.
  • How far do you travel?
    Generally, I am willing to travel anywhere within South Australia for events, and into western and southern Victoria. I travel interstate frequently for my journalism work, so feel free to get in touch even if you're outside the border - I may coincidentally be headed your way! Events more than 20km outside the Adelaide CBD will incur travel costs, calculated on a case-by-case basis.
  • I'd like to get an event happening - what do I need to think about?
    There are certainly a few little details to nut out when working out the logistics of an event. Here are some things to consider: Date and time Venue options (big empty space, wooden floor and stage are preferable but not essential) Event duration Public vs private event Food and drink options (not essential, but a barbecue always makes things more fun) Publicity Please don't be overwhelmed reading this list. I've organised almost 100 line dancing events to date and am more than happy to help you through the process, to make the event the best it can be. Most things can be easily worked out over a 20 minute phone conversation... I promise it's not rocket science! For further information on event options, visit the Services page, or get in touch with me.
  • I'm paying Footloose Fun to run an event. Can I sell tickets for the event?
    Yes, absolutely! I charge a fixed price for the event, and this fee is the only money I collect. If the organising group/committee would like to charge a ticket fee for attendees and then keep the accumulated funds, that is completely fine with me.
  • What type of existing events can you teach at?
    ANY. School fetes, country shows, community celebrations, workplace Christmas parties, birthdays, hens parties, rodeos, music festivals ... line dancing really can fit in anywhere (hooray).
  • How do I book Footloose Fun?
    Head to my contact page to get in touch and we'll get the ball rolling.
  • Are your events open to the public?
    Sometimes! This is entirely dependent on the nature of the event, and remains the choice of the organisation which has engaged Footloose Fun to teach/run the event. Events such as big community events are open to the public, while celebrations such as birthday parties and workplace functions are invite-only.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
    Yes - contact me if you need a copy of it for your records.
  • I've never danced before, how hard is it to learn?
    The good thing about line dancing is it can be as easy or as tricky as you like it to be! Footloose Fun is focused mainly on teaching beginners who have never danced before. I teach dances which can be easily picked up by anyone and everyone... including those with two left feet. While I come to events with a plan of dances to teach, I can easily think on my feet (excuse the pun) to change the trickiness level up or down based on how the crowd is faring.
  • Is Footloose Fun aimed at urban or rural communities?
    Both! Community building is important no matter where you live, therefore Footloose Fun isn't confined to any geographical boundaries.
  • How is this different to Hoedowns For Country Towns?
    Ah yes, well done Mr/Mrs Detective, you got me! The premise of Footloose Fun is fairly similar to Hoedowns For Country Towns. Both have been designed with the aim to bring people together through the humble art of line dancing. HFCT was mainly a one-year venture though, back in 2022, and will only run a few sporadic events going forward. HFCT was also a partnership between myself and co-founder Kate Strong, whereas Footloose Fun is a one-woman-show (don't jump to any negative conclusions, we are of course still friends, we just no longer live out of a car together travelling Australia). And, while HFCT was focused on rural areas, Footloose Fun is a service for people in all communities, whether they are in the big smoke, the back blocks, or somewhere in between.
