June 2, 1980: The top two

September 15, 2017

This successful duo has all the dash and style of expert ballroom dancers, and they proved it yesterday at the Shepparton Civic Centre where the Goulburn Valley Ballroom Dancing Festival's 1980 titles took place.

Shepparton modern ballroom dancing teacher, Mr Bruce Fenthan (left) and his pupil of 12 months, Miss Elizabeth McDonald, are the Victorian, Australian and Australasian champions in the teacher pupil events.

And they were successful yesterday in the eight events they competed in. 

About 400 people attended the dancing titles at the civic centre.

There were many local competitors dancing against others from Victoria and interstate. 

A panel of 15 registered judges from the board of control judged each of the events and all funds raised from the day will be donated to the Parents Without Partners charity fund.
