And one of Alices favourite duos will be in the thick of it. Adam Connelly and Krusty Beattie are getting the band back together for one night only to present the free birthday bash. Krusty said: Were very excited to be hosting the birthday bash. Were the OJ Original Juice and were going to put the juice back into the Juicy Rump. Adam said: This could very well be the last 30th birthday party I host. I think Ill start doing 40ths soon. Krustys highlight of the night is probably me. Krusty is my highlight. Ive also heard there a r e V e g a s - s t y l e showgirls, which should be very interesting. Stan Walker, the original Aussie bro is headl ining, which means there will be a lot of dancing. Krusty said: Im sure hell get loud. Itll be great. There are also a heap of local bands playing on the night. Im really looking forward to seeing Elsie Lange. Im not familiar with her work but Ive heard wonderful things about her. The pair said there were more than a few passing resemblance between the 30th birthday and the original opening of the casino. Krusty said: There were a couple of school productions we have some young bands like The Unknown Artists and Elsie. The original opening had showgirls and fireworks too. Adam said: Are Lasseters using the same showgirls and fireworks? Hopefully not. Stan Walker, The Warburtons , Exit Earth, The Unknown Artists and Elsie Lange will perform on the night. The Birthday Concert is free and open for all ages. The stage is set up on the front lawn and festivities start at 7pm. Silas dance party all about fun GET ready for a white winter tonight as Sila Crosley and the Zumba crew host a massive dance party. Zumba, salsa, bellydancing, hip-hop and contemporary dancing crews will all join together for the Winter White Zumba Fitness Party at the Gapview Hotel from 9pm. Sila said: I got the idea to do a white party from interstate. Ive seen them done before and they look really cool, especially when only the blacklights are on and everybody is glowing. So even though it doesnt snow in Alice Springs, were going to have a white winter. She said the main aim of the party was to take the emphasis off fitness and replace it with fun. She said: This is about taking the partystyle exercise of Zumba and placing it in a party environment. We want people to focus on the fun, so there will be regular breaks for people to stay hydrated. The three other Alice Springs Zumba instructors will also be leading the dances. Myf Powell from Darwins Jamealah Bellydancers, DusTCru and Glenis McBurnie, who teaches salsa, will also be putting on shows. This party is going to be great for people who feel a little intimidated by dance classes. Yes, people who havent danced before can join in, but theyre just as welcome to sit and watch. Entry is $10 and white clothing is compulsory. Cameron Boon
