The image for Sepia Saturday this week with its long dresses could be interpreted as dance time, dance time when dancing was dancing and not jiggity jig, hoppity hop.
And so learning to dance properly was de rigueur. Circa 1960 at Sunshine High School in the Melbourne suburbs students devoted one period a week to a club of their choice. These photos are from the Dancing Club. Ballroom dancing, of course.
And a girl eventually got her first long dance dress, this time Christmas holidays at Apollo Bay in 1946/7 – layers of blue and pink tulle with a corsage on the shoulder of blue and pink plastic flowers.
