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.

This is a fundraiser for La Tormenta Latina, so come support us and don't forget to bring your spare change to buy some baking on the night!

Classes

Try to turn up 15 minutes early to allow for getting through the door as it is not so busy after the first two weeks. 7:15 is a pretty good time to show up for our first class at 7:30.

Concession cards are back to their normal price of $25 and $45 for 10 weeks, 11th week free. Still a great deal.
