Highland dancer gives hip hop a go

Central Coast Scottish dancer Douglas McFarland is taking his highland moves and trading them for hip hop in support of local councillor Gabby Bowles and her Cancer Council Stars of the Central Coast campaign. 

Douglas, owner of Laycock St Dance, was joined by hip hop extraordinaire Kyle Roberts on January 17 in Kibble Park where he was taught the signature hip hop move The Dougie.

Dougie did a fantastic job in the name of charity, raising some much needed funds to support the Cancer Council.

He was definitely out of his comfort zone but managed to prove everyone wrong with his new hip hop groove.

“This is all in the name of charity for support of local councillor Gabby Bowles,” said Mr McFarland who was involved in last year’s campaign.

Onlookers were asked to donate a gold coin in support of the Cancer Council’s annual venture and then joined in a Flash Mob of the Dougie all throughout Kibble Park.

Stars of the Central Coast will be held at Laycock St Theatre on April 17.
