History of Village Rockers Inc.

Village Rockers began very simply as a group of half a dozen friends attending lessons and practising together about 2008.  We decided to design Rock-n-Roll shirts for ourselves and chose the name Village Rockers.  We had grown to about 20 members by then and regularly attended the Beenleigh Bowl's club every Sunday evening.   We needed a Committee to plan regular dances and outings, so we progressed to Incorporation.  We formed an Incorporated Association in March 2013 with about 60 members, and became Village Rockers Inc.

Now, in 2019 we are a well known group within the Logan Community.  We hold regular lessons to share our passion and teach beginners and we continue learning new steps and some line and partner dances at weekly intermediate classes. Village Rockers hold Annual Charity Dances and monthly club dance nights.  Membership now stands at over 160 members.    The Rock and Roll culture is about socialising as much as dancing.  We always have fun at lessons and events.  We receive sponsorship for some events from Logan City Council and  Bendigo Bank.

Village Rockers Today
Community engagement

The club is sought after for dance demonstrations and performances for charity.   We attend many community functions and were asked by Logan City Council to perform special 1942 dances for the 75th anniversary of Camp Cable, an American wartime Base in the local area.  Many members learned the classic dances in 10 weeks and performed admirably on the day.  We hold annual major Charity dances that are well attended by the dance Community from Brisbane, and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.  We hire Local bands for all our events and encourage and provide opportunities for newly formed Bands.
