1 May 2016 Back to Dancing Tomorrow!

Hey everyone!

I hope you've all had a great uni break and are feeling refreshed for Term Two.
UCanDance classes start tomorrow at the usual time of 7:30pm at Riccarton High School. The start of a new term is a great time to bring all your friends along too!

Bachata Special Class

Twice a year we run a 'Special Class' of a style that is not being currently taught at UCD.
Our first special class this year is Bachata, starting on Wednesday the 11th of May and running for four weeks (May 11th, 18th, 25th, and June 1st). The class will be running from 7:15pm to 8pm, and Modern Jive will be starting a little later, at 8pm.
The cost is a $15 for all four weeks. You can sign up on the door starting tomorrow. You can also click attending on Facebook.

Wednesday Night Class Times

This week classes will be running at the usual times (Modern Jive starting at 7:30 and Salsa starting at 8:30). But from Wednesday 11th of May, the timing will be slightly different due to the Bachata special class.
Modern Jive will be starting at 8pm and Salsa at 9pm. Freestyle time will be reduced and classes will still end at 10pm.
This change only affects Wednesday classes, Mondays will remain the same. More information can be found on our website.

Quiz Night

The Annual UCanDance Quiz Night is less than two weeks away on Thursday May 12th. This will be held on campus (exact venue tbc) at 7:30pm.
The Quiz is a fundraising event, entry is $5 on the door. Question rounds include; science, food, dancing and more!
Invite your friends along to the Facebook event, everyone is welcome, they don't have to be members.

Looking forward to seeing you all at classes this week, Happy Dancing!

11 Apr 2016 No Classes for 3 Weeks

Hey everyone!

A short and sweet one today.

Thank You

Thanks to everyone for coming along to UCanDance in Term One! I hear the End of Term party was awesome, I'm gutted I couldn't be there myself. I hope you all enjoyed it if you went along and thanks to the Committee for pulling it all together.


Another reminder that there are no classes tonight or for the next three weeks. We will restart when uni starts back on Monday the 2nd of May.

Happy Dancing!

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone had an awesome Easter break and ate way too much chocolate (I know I did).

Bring a Friend Night

Bring a Friend night is tonight (Wednesday 30th March)!!!
This means you can bring along a friend (or five), and if it's their first class, it's free!
This is the perfect time to bring along friends who want to give dancing a go, and there will be a lot of new members so we will be running a absolute beginners class.
Click attending and tag your friends who you want to bring along on Facebook.

Membership T-Shirts

It's your last opportunity to order one of our awesome member's t-shirts. Only $20 for a super cool and comfy shirt. Order and pay at the door before the end of term (last class Wednesday the 6th of April).
If you have already put your name down but not paid could you please do so by the end of term. Reminder that this is cash only.

End of Term Party

It's now less than two weeks to the end of term (yay!) and to celebrate we will be having our first end of term party.
This will be held at Riccarton High School on Saturday the 9th of April from 8-11pm.
It will be an awesome night of hanging out and practicing all the great dance moves you have learnt this term.
Entry is $5 which includes fizzy, chips and lollies.
RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook.


Another reminder that there will be no classes during the April term break (9th to 29th April).
