This local group of young dancers have become synonymous with the festival since 2015 when The Parkes Little Boppers began with a group of six local year 5 and 6 students. They thought it would be a fun idea to participate in the festival.
The group has now grown to 17 children, ranging from 6 to 16 years, and have a junior and senior troupe.
The Boppers started rehearsing for the 2019 Parkes Elvis Festival in November last year with dance routines choreographed by a member of the Boppers, Gracey Denham Jones, under guidance of manager Maureen Massey.
Maureen is extremely proud of the commitment made by each member of the Boppers troupe.
The Boppers will be performing every day at the Parkes Leagues Club and will take part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll and Showcase competitions in Cooke Park on Saturday. They will also take time to visit and entertain the residents of Niola Aged Care, and a range of other appearances during the week.
Be sure to give them a friendly wave and take photos with the troupe when you see them out and about. You can find them on Instagram for dates and times of appearances.
