You can rock and you can roll — and you can do both at the same time.

The Batavia Rockers, a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers, will teach you rock‘n’roll and rockabilly dancing.

“Dancing is so good for your mind, body and soul,” Mandy Riley, president of the Batavia Rockers, said.

“Rock‘n’roll is so much fun, and a great form of exercise.

“We put dances on and bring bands to Geraldton so people can put their moves into action.”

The Geraldton Surf Life Saving Club in Mahomets is the place where all the moves are made.

The Batavia Rockers hold rock‘n’roll lessons every Tuesday at 7pm and, for improvers, at 8pm.

Rockabilly is taught every Thursday fortnight at 7pm.

The Rockers invite you to come solo or bring somebody. The cost is for $10 each a lesson.
