The Dance, compiled by Humans in Geelong.

The aim of The Dance, is to showcase the beautiful Geelong region and many of our amazing individuals and community groups who are making a difference. Our volunteer videographer Hadeel Hani of did a brilliant job of matching the 60 clips to the winning song. It’s ‘Dance the Blues Away’ from the album, ‘Live at New Hall’ released in 2019 by Andrea Robertson.
