Preparations are in full swing for next month’s Ball in the Mall event with debutante couples stepping to dance training this week.

The event is in its second year and gives 10 young couples the opportunity to participate in a debutante ball held in Hargreaves Mall on October 27.

The event is organised by a committee including council, Victoria Police, Anglicare, Kangan Institute and local businesses and community groups.

The couples hit the floors at MarShere Dance studio this week to hone their dancing skills ahead of the big event.

Mayor Margaret O’Rourke said she was looking forward to attending the ball for the second time.

“Last year’s inaugural event was a great success and a wonderful example of our community coming together to create something very special,” she said.

“Many businesses and organisations very generously donated their time, skills and products to ensure our young debutantes were trained, dressed and presented beautifully, and enjoyed a fantastic night.

“We are hoping that this generosity will be forthcoming again this year to ensure we can have an event as good as last year.”
