Dance Information

The dance name for this dance, The Canberra Bluebell Logo, was inspired by the floral emblem of the Australian Capital Territory, The Royal Bluebell.

Wahlenbergia Gloriosa, commonly known as Royal Bluebell is a perennial herb in the bluebell family Campanulaceae. It has egg-shaped leaves near the base of its stem, linear leaves higher up and usually a single purple flower with a tube-shaped base.
