|30 May 2016||Masquerade Party This Saturday!|
Sorry for the absence of a newsletter the last couple of weeks, I'm sure you all understand that the 'business end' of the semester can be stressful and busy. Thanks again to everyone who came along to our recent quiz and movie nights, it was awesome to see everyone outside of regular classes.
End of Term Party
It wouldn't be the end of term at UCanDance without an End of Term Party. This coming Saturday (4th of June) we are having
a masquerade themed party, from 8-11pm at Riccarton High.
This week is our final week of classes before we take a 5 week break for the university study, exam and holiday period.
Classes will restart the same day lectures do, Monday 11th July.
Wow - you guys are awesome! All 40 places on the Hanmer Trip (30-31 July) have now been filled. If you haven't already, please pay your $70 on the door this week to secure your place. If you have missed out, we do have a waitlist so get your name down ASAP if you want to come along.
The Committee is meeting this coming Wednesday 1st June, 12pm in the Central Library Discussion Room 1106. These meetings
are open to anyone so feel free to come along if you want to have a say.

|7 Jun 2016||Holidays, Cargo Bar and more!|
Thanks to everyone who came along to the End of Term Party on Saturday night. It was such a fun night and there were so many awesome masks.
As hopefully you know by now there are no UCanDance classes until semester two begins on July 11th.
Cargo Bar Latin Night
A break from classes is the perfect opportunity to explore the wider social dance scene in Christchurch. This coming Sunday
(12th June) there is a Latin night at Cargo Bar in Addington.
We are on Break for Exams and Holidays. See You After the Break!
