|25 Oct 2013||Special General Meeting and End of Year Celebration|
Good luck for those of you with exams! Classes have ended for the year, but we are having one last chance to get together before taking a hiatus for the summer.
SGM and End of Year Celebration
We will be holding a Special General Meeting at 7pm on November 8 to approve the finalised accounts for 2013. This will only take a couple of minutes, so we are tying it into an end of year celebration. Come along to relax after exams, socialise and dance!
Where: The Undercroft
Hope to see you all there!

|14 Oct 2013||Dance Competitions TONIGHT!|
What a busy week for UCanDance last week! We hope that you all enjoyed the AGM, the last class of the year, Rueda at the Body Festival and social dancing at the Cargo Bar last night.
Whilst our classes have now finished for the year, don't forget that we have our dance competitions tonight! Even though our classes will take a break over the summer, other social dancing events will be continuing!
Dance Competitions TONIGHT
Also known as our annual chocolate giveaway, our "competitions" are a fun, informal event to show off your stuff without the stress and pressure of a real competition. Entry is FREE! Come along TONIGHT at the Burnside High School Dance Room from 7:30-10:00 (signups on the night), for a fun night of dancing and crazy antics! Here are some photos from the dance comps in 2010.

See you all tonight!
|6 Oct 2013||The AGM, Rueda at the Body Festival, Last Class of the Year and Social Dancing at the Cargo Bar!|
I hope you've all had a good weekend. We have such an exciting week coming up for you! Be sure to come along to our AGM tomorrow night, our last class of the year on Wednesday, and our Rueda workshop at the Body Festival on Saturday.

The Annual General Meeting
Held THIS Monday 7th October, our Annual General Meeting will take place instead of our usual classes. Come along to Kirkwood room KE04 at 7:30pm to hear about the year that's been and cast your votes to decide who will run UCanDance in 2014, or maybe even run for committee yourself! Entry is free, and drinks and nibbles will be provided. There may even be a bit of dancing! Check out the event on Facebook.
A pre-AGM will be held at 7:00pm (same place) for those who are interested in running for committee! A presentation will provide details about each of the roles on the committee, after which you can ask any questions you might have.
The agenda of the AGM is as follows:
Last Class on Wednesday
Please note that our last class of the year will be this Wednesday 9th October, but don't despair just yet! There are still plenty of fun events where you can get your dancing fix! We have our dance competitions on Monday 14th October, and will be having an end of year party at some point, in addition to other social dancing events!
