Welcome to UCanDance
Classes will resume on the 11th of July, see you there! We will also be stopping Salsa and starting Rueda, which will be very exciting!
15 Jul 2016 Come Dance at Clubs Day!

Hey everyone!

A short bonus weekend email from your favourite university dance club!

Clubs Day

Winterlude Clubs Day is this coming Monday (18th July) between 11am and 2pm.
We will be based outside in the quad area between the Central and Arts Lecture blocks (near Cafe 1894). We will post a photo of the exact location on Facebook on Monday morning.
We would love if you all came for a dance or two. It would be particularly impressive if we could get a big group together to do Rueda. This will be at 11:10am, 12:10pm and 1:10pm.

Ice Cream Containers

Now for the strange requests portion of this email...
For the Hanmer trip we need a number of empty (clean) ice cream containers, the 2L square ones.
So if you have any lying around, unwanted, please bring them along to class.
Or, you could just eat as much ice cream as possible over the next two weeks!

Have a nice weekend everyone, we'll see you on Monday for Clubs Day and regular classes and on Wednesday for Bring a Friend night!

11 Jul 2016 Semester Two, Bring a Friend & Hanmer

Hey everyone!

Welcome back to UCanDance for Semester Two! I hope you've all had a restful break and the first day back hasn't been too much of a struggle.

Semester Two Dance Classes

Semester Two classes will be in the same place, at the same time as Semester One. This is Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30pm at Riccarton High School. $3 for students and $5 for non-students - cash only.
The only change from Semester One is that we will be teaching classes in Modern Jive and Rueda. Rueda is a fun Latin style danced in a circle, so make sure you come along and give it a go!

Bring a Friend Night

Our second Bring a Friend night for the year is coming up next week, Wednesday the 20th of July. You can bring along a friend, and if it's their first class, it's free!
This is the perfect time to bring along friends who want to give dancing a go, and there will be a lot of new members so we will be running a absolute beginners class.
Click attending and tag your friends who you want to bring along on Facebook.
If your friends would like to sign up to the club the best way to do so is through the Sign Up link on our website.

Hanmer Trip

The Hanmer Trip is only a few weeks away now. This week is your last chance to pay before your spot is given to someone on the waiting list.
If you have signed up you should have received an information email, please reply to this email if you have not received the information. Also a reminder that you need to send us your emergency contact information if you haven't already.

We will also be at Clubs Day next week on Monday the 18th between 11am and 2pm so come find us for a dance!

Happy Dancing!
