Welcome to a fresh week of UCanDance classes. We're in Tī Kōuka (Haere Roa) on Wednesday with some Modern Jive and Salsa moves for you all. You can join in even if you've never come to UCan before!
Remember to bring your cash - we also have internet banking available.

This Week's Classes

Our schedule for Wednesday night will be:

  • 7:00pm: Doors open - During this time you can meet and greet other new members, our committee, and some of our teachers! Or even better, ask someone to dance and practice your moves!
  • 7.15-8.00: Modern Jive class
  • 8.00-8.15: Notices and MJ social dancing.
  • 8.15-9.00: Salsa class

Events Coming Up...

Pajama Party
This is our upcoming party to celebrate the end of term! We're having a party on Friday 21st of August at 8pm. Come along for some dancing and snacks, and bring your favourite mug for some hot chocolate!

2020 Ball
Save the date for our upcoming ball on the 5th of September, our biggest events this year. Prepare your outfits - this year we're having a steampunk theme!

Our Classes

The class dates and locations for the remainder of the term are as follows:

Wednesday 12/08 - Tī Kōuka (Haere Roa)
Wednesday 19/08 - Tī Kōuka (Haere Roa).

Our term 3 styles are Modern Jive and Salsa!
Later in the year we'll switch this up, so you're getting a taste of lots of awesome dance styles.
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 $3.00 for students and $5.00 for non-students, after the first week. Classes are at a lower cost at the moment since there's only one class a week.
If it's your first time in class, it's free as well - so bring all your friends!

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

Hope to see you there,
