I wish to advise that myself Jeanette Maynes on behalf of the Salsa Group WILL NOT be hosting anymore events at the Bayswater.

The new owner & management have made a decision to cancel future events without any consultation with myself or the Salsa Group & have decided to branch out & work with another dance company & have found another client to do the event, I have been notified via email correspondence.
It’s a shame to see the lack of loyalty & support from the new owner & management after hosting seven successful events drawing crowds of 200 – 300 people each time. It is also disappointing that they do not see value in my event or the support of the local Fraser Coast Latino Community, performers, instructors whom are all a very close nit group that have attended in the past.


I would like to profoundly thank everyone that has invested their time, money, energy, hot dance moves, awesome butt shaking & good will into these events; I personally do VALUE your hard efforts & continued support / loyalty.

I am excited to announce I have sourced two new professional venues & wish to advise a new fun element will be added taking the Awesomeness & Success of the party’s to the next level!

More info coming soon on our next ‘LATIN DANCE PARTY’, it’s time to really bring in the ‘WOW’ Factor!

On Wednesday night I went to check out a local dance class and had a ball! While the instructor is alittle older and so were some of the members they all certainly knew their stuff! In my first lesson I learnt the basics of: Gypsy Tap, Pride Of Erin, Evening Three Step, Waltz, Cha Cha, Samba & Progressive Jive!!!

Mixing the dances up there was absolutely no room for boredom and everyone was so friendly!

Beginners Class is at 6:30pm at the Memorial Hall, Main St Pialba, Wednesday Nights and costs $9.

If you have not been before turn up at about 6pm and Col will run you through the basics before start of class.

This was by far the Biggest Salsa Party to date with at least 300+ people coming to the Bayswater.

The night started with a high energy Latin dance performance by Lupita, Ana & Rebecca from L.A.D Studio (Latin & Alternative Dance Studio) in Maryborough. The girls really got the crowd excited and lead us into a beginners Salsa lesson. This was then followed by some high energy Zumba enjoyed by all!

After we caught our breath it was time to watch the first ever Hervey Bay Burlesque dance performance by Fraser Coast Dance, the hottest new trend in town! The girls were sensational!

“You’ll shimmy, shake, bump, grind, wiggle, jiggle and twirl your way through the classic dance moves. Their classes are designed for adult non dancers or those coming back to dance. The majority of  Tonight’s performance group have never danced before!” …. I announced over the mike.

We then danced the night away till after 11.30pm with
DJ SParks who did a sensational job playing all the songs I had organised for the night to run smoothly!

A HUGE Thank you to all that helped pull off the AWESOME Latin Dance Party last night and  to all for your participation in every special way!

Jeanette Maynes wants to shake up the idea of setting a Queensland record with Fraser Coast Zumba® enthusiasts.

And if you’re not hooked yet, she says it won’t take long.

The owner of Design House in Hervey Bay and organiser of the popular Salsa Group, has teamed up with dance enthusiast Enrique Salomao for a fun two-hour Zumba 500 workout at the Great Hall, Beach Rd Pialba, this Saturday, April 17.

“We are aiming to get 500 people on Saturday.  But that’s just the start,” she said.

Ms Maynes says Zumba® 500 isn’t just for fitness gurus; just about anyone can come along and give it a go, male or female.

“There is no room to feel uncomfortable.  You just go at your own pace. Everyone is too busy getting their own groove on to look at you” she said.

“It’s for all shapes and all ages.  They’re people in their 60s and 70s that come along to Zumba® and can certainly keep up.”

“For that whole lesson I’m getting a huge maximum workout. It’s so much fun, and you feel awesome for the rest of the day.”

The party starts with registration at 9.30am at a cost of $15. The event runs from 10am to noon.

Make sure you dress in comfortable and sporty clothing. Children welcome.
