Balla Balla Ukes

Chantelle partnered with the Balla Balla Community Centre and her friend Sharon Start in October 2017 to form a community ukulele group based in Cranbourne, Victoria.

The Balla Balla Ukes have grown to be a popular community music ensemble and often perform at ukulele festivals and other local events. They cater for beginners through to more advanced members.

The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at Balla Balla Community Centre in Cranbourne.

  • Kids Club 1:15pm-2pm (Meeting Room)
  • Adult Beginners 1:15pm-2pm (Small Hall)
  • Intermediate/Advanced Main Group 2pm-4pm
  • Performance Ensemble 4pm-5pm

*Temporary session times during Covid-19:

1st & 3rd Sunday (now finally back at Balla Balla Community Centre):

  • 1-2pm Strum-along
  • 2-2:30pm Open mic / show & tell
