Shirley & Harry Oliver. Dancing Sweethearts

Dancing Sweethearts spotlight

Celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary their shared passion of dancing has been a key to why they believe their marriage has lasted so long. “He was a very good dancing partner, I wasn’t going to let go of him,” Shirley said. So much so that when they first moved to Bonny Hills from Sydney 19 years ago they built an extension, so a dance studio could be created. Over many years they have taught many students various forms of dance. Although they no longer teach or dance they are still regulars at the Senior Citizens Club in Port Macquarie to watch others enjoy the hobby, catch up with friends and listen to the music. “It’s a great social outlet for us now,” Shirley said.
