Go gaga for Go Go dancing

Moment of truth on Saturday when I tried to slip into last year’s swimming costume – where did the winter blubber come from? “How did this happen” I asked?
Well I retired as a dancer, stopped rowing and fell pregnant all in the same year – but the disappointment was none the less the same!
Do I really want to start social dancing again just to lose those extra kilos? And then whilst sitting on the couch (yes I know) I saw the sexy Anna on ‘Are you smarter than a 5th grader’.

Anna teaches Go-Go dancing! How delicious, so I couldn’t help myself, I had to ask her all about it!
Now for all you retro gals who like to shake it – you’re going to love Anna's Go-Go Academy
We spoke to Anna about the new (but old) craze sweeping the dance floor.

Anna what is Go-Go dancing?
Go-go was the number one dance style of the 60s, and now its back and more fun than ever! Dances range from The Monkey to The Boogaloo and The Pony,
Go-go dancing is high-energy and is a great way to lose weight, but most of all its great fun!
Anna’s students learn the exciting art of go-go dancing in a fun and social environment (with a licensed bar!). No dance experience is necessary, and in every class, students learn a range of fun moves they can use straight away on the dance floor.

How long have you been teaching for?
I have been running my Go-Go Academy in Melbourne for 5 years, and will soon be adding more classes to the schedule. I am currently on a mission to amass a go-go army.

What is it about Go-Go dancing that makes you gaga?
Go-go dancing is high-energy and is a great way to lose weight, but most of all its great fun! Bring your mates! Bring your mum! Do the Pulp Fiction, The Pony and The Ski at your next party and impress your friends with your knowledge of these classic and exciting moves!

And your car Anna?
In between classes I love driving my 1964 AMC Rambler Classic sedan (V8 of course, vroom!),

Photos from the Beachley Surf Classic

Hotrod at the Beachley Surf Classic

We braved the rain and wind today to make our way down to Dee Why Beach for the Beachley Surf Classic.

Anna’s gorgeous pink hotrod decided to have a flat battery in the morning and then again in the pouring rain in the afternoon – but never fear the Galmatic Car Care girls were here and we got onto our way!

The day was a blast especially with Karolina in fine funny form and we raised valuable funds for the Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation.

A big thank you to our Galmatic crew and the girls from Royal Blush and Shophouse.
Thanks to everyone who donated and we hope you like your photo with our hotrod!
Galmatic proudly supports the Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation. We donate $5 from every Galmatic 'Know your Car' workshop to the foundation and $1 from every sale of the Galmatic Handbook.
