Two weeks of classes done and dusted! It's been great meeting all of our new members, and welcoming back those who have been with us before. I hope you're all starting to get comfy in your dancing shoes!
Sunday Picnic Postponed
Our first social event now has a different date! It will be held on March 19, a.k.a next Sunday. We're going to be holding a picnic on Ilam Fields starting from 2:00pm, complete with food, games and socialising! You are strongly encouraged to bring something for yourself, and maybe a little something to share too. Feel free to bring along some outside games as well, such as frisbees or a football.
If you would like to order a sleek UCanDance member T-shirt, we are officially taking in orders, which you can put your
name down for in class. There will be a picture of the design next to the laptop where sign-ups will be recorded.
Concession Cards Prices
Our special price on concession cards has come to an end, which means that the cards will return to their standard pricing
of $25 for a student, and $45 for a non-student.
I hope you're all having fun with your new friends and skills!

|26 Feb 2017||Welcome to UCanDance 2017!|
A very warm welcome to all of our new members who came and had a chat with us on Clubs Day, and also to those who are returning to us for another year of dancing! It's going to be a great year, and we can't wait to get started.
If you've received this email, that means that you're officially a member of our club!
If you've moved on from the club, and would like to stop receiving emails, you can unsubscribe here.
Our first class kicks off this Monday at 7:30pm, located in the Burnside High School dance room. The doors will be open from 7:00 onwards, so be there early when we start the class at 7:30! There should be plenty of parking available at the area on the map, which you can see here.
You can also click 'Going' on the Facebook Event, and invite
your friends who might also be interested.
REMEMBER, the Wednesday class does not start until 8:00pm!
Make sure that you like us on our Facebook page and join our Facebook group to stay up to date with the latest UCanDance news.
If you're completely new to dancing, we strongly recommend that you take a look at our Dance Etiquette. UCanDance is very proud of the comfortable and social atmosphere at our club, and we want to make sure everyone comes to class feeling like they can participate with anyone and everyone.
The key information is to be comfortable, clean, and considerate. Wear clothes and shirts that you can move in: t-shirts,
shorts, jeans, skirts, etc.
|18 Feb 2017||Welcome to the New Year!|
If you're receiving this email, it means you were a part of UCD sometime in the hopefully not too distant past (woo!). First and foremost, hopefully you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years, and you're all pumped for another year of fun antics and laughs with us. There have been a couple of minor changes for 2017:
New Venue for Semester One + Time Change
First, we have a new venue! Those of you with us last year will know we had class at Riccarton High, however a month ago they realised they were too busy for us in Semester One, so Burnside High came to our rescue. They have a brand new, cushioned dance floor imported from Australia over the summer (so dancers in heels MUST wear heel caps so we're invited back again if necessary). Wednesday classes will also be starting a tad later due to yoga in the room before us, so turn up at 8:00pm for classes to start around 8:15pm.
This year our classes will be MJ (with a new, exciting syllabus) and a term of Bachata, followed by three terms of Salsa so you'll all be Salsa pros! We will also be having holiday and study week/exam classes this year, which will be treated somewhat like a special class, so stay tuned for more info on that later in the term!
Clubs Day will also be happening next Tuesday and Wednesday (21st and 22nd), so to be included on our mailing list and so the system knows what active members we have in 2017, even you, our wonderful past dance members, need to sign up again (don't worry, you can also do this in our dance classes if you're too busy on Clubs Day). If you are free on Clubs Day and you want to have a bit of a boogie or want to stand in some shade to help people sign up and eat lollies, come along to the UCD stall (we'll be the fun stall playing music and dancing), all are welcome!
Classes are back on Feb 27th, 2017!
UCanDance is the University of Canterbury's dance club, specialising in popular partner dances such as Modern Jive, Salsa and Bachata. We run classes twice a week during the university year for just $3 for students and $5 for everyone else. Plus, if you come on Monday, Wednesday is free! Concession cards are also available.
Everyone is welcome - no experience or partner required!
