This dance was also entered in the under-15 own choice duo section, with dancers Mulqueen and Isabella Hill winning gold.

Andrea Smith said Pure Gold Bootscooters teamed up with Urban Cowboys, so both clubs’ inexperienced dancers had a chance to compete in the novice team section — a move which paid off handsomely with the gold medal.

The combined clubs also claimed silver in the 45 years to 60 years section.

Andrea Smith said the event was followed by the Pink Boot Charity Ball, with the WA line dancing community coming together to dance the night away and raise $19,435 for the Toby for Childhood Cancer charity.
