Meet the new King and Queen of Inverlaw! Joseph Coppo, from Nanango, and Emily Schwarze, from Ellesmere, earned the titles at the recent Inverlaw Ball.
The annual ball, held at the Inverlaw Farmers Hall, had a special rainbow theme this year which was reflected in the hall decorations.
Some of the dancers also added rainbow flair to their outfits.
The ball happens every year but it’s been a decade or more since a King and Queen have been chosen.
To earn the title, entrants took part in an informal monte carlo competition dancing the Pride Of Erin before three impartial judges from Toowoomba.
Carmel Green, Sherrin Lawler and Merv Smith selected Joseph and Emily for the title, and presented them with sashes and prizes.
Inverlaw Hall dances, and the suppers that follow, are always lots of fun and these days it’s not unusual to see younger dancers taking to the floor.
Balls have been held at Inverlaw for decades, almost as long as Mystique (Dave Muller) has been supplying music around the South Burnett.
Dave, who’s been playing at local dances for more than 40 years, kept the music going and toes tapping all night.
The next monthly dance at the Inverlaw Farmers Hall will be held on October 5 with music supplied by the Diamonds.
Dancing lessons are held at the hall every Wednesday night from 7:30pm.
