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.

Holidays

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!
