1 Jun 2015 Queen's Birthday, End of Semester & Hanmer

Good day dancers!
Today is Queen's Birthday so we will be taking the night off dancing. We will however be having class like normal on Wednesday with Zouk at 7:15, MJ at 8 and Salsa at 9.

End of Semester Party

The end of the first semester is here and exams are getting scarily close! Come along to Fendalton Community Hall this Saturday to dance the night away! This is a great chance to dance out some of that pre-exam stress before knuckling down.

Fendalton Community Hall is just down the road from Uni at 170 Clyde Rd. Entry is $5 and there will chips and fizzy like usual. Keep up to date on Facebook.

Hanmer Trip!

UCanDance's annual Hanmer Trip is here! Every year we hire a lodge up at Hanmer Springs, throw you a party, visit the hot pools and cook you lots of food. This is always a very popular weekend which sells out very quickly.

The trip is on the 25-26th of July. The cost is $70 and this gets you transport, accommodation, food, party and pools! What a bargain. It is possible that it will sell out on Wednesday so get in quickly! Keep up to date on Facebook.


See you on Wednesday!

27 May 2015 Coming Up...

I hope everyone had a great time at La Tormenta Latina on the weekend, we have more great events coming up like the annual Hanmer Trip plus weekly classes until the end of term.

Next week is the last week of classes and Queens Birthday is on Monday so there will be no class on that day.

End of Term Party

The end of the semester is near. Come along and have a dance before you knuckle down to study for those exams. We'll be dancing the night away at the Fendalton Community Centre hall. Come along and have a groove!

Entry is $5 at the door and there will be chips, lollies, fizzy, and lots of great music.

Hanmer Trip

The Hanmer trip is nearly here!
Come and spend a weekend away with your fellow dancers in a lodge at Hanmer Springs! Complete with a trip to Frog Rock, a dance party on Saturday (theme TBA) and of course a trip to the hot pools on Sunday!

This is a perfect weekend away with friends at a great student price of $70. Transport, accommodation, food, dance party, and pool entry on Sunday included.

Signups are in class, and spots are confirmed with payment. Get in quick, as this awesome weekend is limited to 40 spaces and often sells out in one night!


Come find me for a dance!
