Zouk Special Class

We are extremely excited to be able to offer this 5 week introduction to zouk, taught by the amazing Paula & James! The class starts this Wednesday and is $20 upfront for all 5 classes.

In order to ensure a good partner balance it is preferable that you signup with a partner. The class will however rotate as usual. If you don't have a partner just talk to the friendly people on door.

This is a great chance to learn a style not often taught at UCanDance, so signup quick, it's going to be awesome!

Quiz Night

Did you know that a group of flamingos is called a flamboyance? Or that about a quarter of the bones in the human body are in the feet?

Come along to UCanDance's awesome quiz night to show your stuff, have a blast, and buy some delicious baking. Entry to the quiz night is $5 per person, 14th of May at the Living Room. Teams will be randomly assigned on the night.
