Chocolate Giveaway
Our Annual Chocolate Giveaway is on this Friday at 7.30pm at Jack Mann DW2! This is a night of fun dancing competitions for chocolate. It's non-serious and there'll be heaps of chocolate for us to giveaway so come along whether you're a beginner or a pro.

Our Classes

Our term 4 styles are Modern Jive and Bachata!

Each night, the moves that are taught in class are filmed and posted in our Facebook group. Be sure to join this and keep up to date with all our events, and be able to use the move videos for practice!

Also in the Facebook group is our teacher feedback form, which really helps us make classes as enjoyable and informative for you guys as possible - if you've got anything you want us to know about our classes (positive or a suggested improvement), leave a response via the form!

As always, you do not need a partner or any dance experience to attend our classes. Wear clothing that is comfortable to move in, and shoes with slightly slippery soles (or dance shoes) are highly recommended.
We encourage you to bring a drink bottle, deodorant, a spare shirt, and a positive attitude!

Classes are $5.00 for students and $7.00 for non-students. If you come to class on Monday, you can come on Wednesday for free! Prices are back to the normal rate since we can now run two classes a week.
If it's your first time in class, it's free as well, so bring all your friends!
All classes will be held in DW1, Jack Mann Auditorium, Dovedale campus.

You can find more information on the website, Instagram, or the Facebook page.

Hope to see you there,
