Dance Mania has been a regular and popular feature at events since it began in 1996.

Lisa Dickinson, who founded the group, has trained dancers for a variety of events in the last two decades and the group has very much become part of the community with its Christmas and summer shows with performance and music from jazz, classical and 60s up to street style.
