15 Aug 2016 UCanDance Room Change This Week

Hey everyone!

Last week of term already, wow!

Change of Room for Classes this Week

Due to Riccarton High holding mock exams this week we are unable to use the hall.
So this Monday and Wednesday (15th and 17th August), our classes will be held in P7, which is part of Riccarton's Performing Arts Block. This is situated on the other side of the school, near the Upper Riccarton Public Library.
There is a map available on Facebook and we will have members pointing out the way from the hall.

End of Term Party

It's 1920's party time next Saturday, 20th August from 8-11pm.
$5 entry for dancing, snacks and fun! The location of this is unchanged, the Riccarton High School Hall. Invite your friends on Facebook!
Also please don't forget that this is an alcohol free event, anyone deemed intoxicated will be asked to leave.

Holidays

There will be no UCanDance classes over the university break (weeks beginning August 22nd and 29th). We will be back on September 5th, the same day lectures restart.

Hey everyone!

This term has gone by so quickly, we only have three lessons left before the break! We have lots of awesome events coming up so read on for more information.

Strawberry Fare Dessert Night

Do you like dessert? Do you like hanging out with your dance friends?
If you answered yes to either of these questions you should come to our Strawberry Fare Dessert Night! Strawberry Fare is a Christchurch institution of delicious-ness where the dessert menu is the longest menu they have (gluten free, dairy free, and vegan options available!)
If you are interested in coming along please participate in the doodle poll today so we can make a booking.

Our third end of term party is next Saturday, 20th August from 8-11pm at Riccarton High School Hall (normal class venue). The party is 1920's themed so get out your feathers and fringing! Entry is $5 for dancing and snacks, invite all your friends on Facebook.

2 Aug 2016 Ball Tickets, New Committee Members and More.

Hey everyone!

Thanks to everyone who came along to our Hanmer Trip and dance party, your costumes were awesome and we had such a great time!

Ball

Our Enchanted Ball is only six weeks away now! Tickets will be available very shortly through Dash Tickets, keep your eye out on the Facebook Group. The committee is in the middle of planning a whole heap of awesome decorations, delicious food and clever costumes. If you'd like to help out and volunteer your time, discounted tickets would be available - talk to a committee member for more information.

Committee Members and Harrassment Issues

We have had a couple of changes to the committee and now have Yuri and Courtney as part of the committee.
We would also like to remind you that you can approach any committee member about any harrasment issue at any time. This is confidential and the club has policies in place to ensure that UCanDance is a safe, fun, environment for all at all times.
President Lauren and Yuri fill the specific roles of Harrassment Officers and we take your complaints very seriously.

New Member Sign Ups

If you brought a friend along for Bring a Friend night and don't think they had a chance to 'officially' sign up to the club, send them this link, which allows them to sign up to our mailing list. This means we can easily keep track of how many members the club has and we really appreciate it.

End of Term Party

We are halfway through the term already (crazy) so mark off Saturday 20th August, 8-11pm in your diaries for the end of term party.


Happy Dancing!
