Breaking News from the Therapy Centre for Tarantism

With deep sadness, (especially for Don) I announce the death of Maureen, one of our founding members of Beach Bootscooters. Maureen will always be remembered for her gentle and kind nature and love of partner dances. She was one of the lucky ones who had a dancing partner.
Maddie Glover: Just woke to the devastating news that Robbie McGowan Hickie has passed away 💔 I grew up learning and loving his unique choreography: Alcazar, Alvaro, Amame, Cool Chick, Feel Right, Fiesta, Gin & Tonic, Go Mama Go, Inspiration, Just a Kiss, Legend, Maybe I Could, One Shot, Rock and Roll Bride, Ride Away, Some Beach, Stitch It Up, Tell the World, Wanna Be Elvis, Yolanda and so many more. I only met Robbie for the first time at the 2017 Crystal Boot Awards. Many years ago, it felt like all my Dad taught were Robbie and Kate Sala dances (individually and collectively). I can still remember how ‘starstruck’ I was by all my line dance icons at The Boots for the first time, in particular when meeting Robbie 😍 🥃 Raise a drink for Robbie.
