Bootscooting is one form of dancing where you don’t need a partner and almost anyone can get involved.

There’s more to bootscooting or line dancing than polished boots, sequins and broad brimmed hats.

The low impact dance is one which is enjoyed from Nashville to the Bay.

Up and down the coast there are bootscooting weekends, and the bootscooters are travelling to the Bay for the June long weekend.

The Blue Water Country Music Festival may not be going ahead but the bootscooters will definitely be kicking up their heels.

Many venues are still offering country music over the long weekend to keep the tradition of the once successful festival alive.

West Diggers has bootscooting events from 7-11 June and everyone is welcome.

Mel Smith President of the Bay Bootxcooters Line Dance Club told News Of The Area, “We have a great time, it’s fun and inclusive.”

She believes, that bootscooting offers a real sense of community and many of the bootscooters have formed strong friendships with dancers from all over the state.

“It’s great because anyone can bootscoot and enjoy themselves while enjoying some great music,” she said.

You can find out more about getting fit with the bootscooters by calling Mel on 0409 265 135.
