18 Apr 2017 Mid - Holiday Update!

Hello Everyone!

We hope you've had a fantastic holiday so far, and that you were able to take some chill time for Easter!

Holiday Classes are still on!

Just a quick reminder that Holiday Classes are still on every Monday and Wednesday night at DW1, and they will be starting at 7:00pm.

We've had some great fun on these nights, so come along for a little while and practice your skills!

Movie Night: Footloose

We will be screening a showing of Footloose next Wednesday, on the 26th of April.
UCanDance movie nights are a great opportunity to come hang out with the people you've met in class, and also meet some new people who share the dancing love!

The exact time will be displayed on an upcoming Facebook event, so stay tuned in the coming days.

Term 2 Classes: May 1st (Time Changes!)

Modern Jive and Salsa classes will be kicking off on May 1st, just in time for the new uni term, and we will still be in the exact same venue as last term, the Burnside High School Dance Room.

Times have changed slightly! Read below:
- Modern Jive classes will begin at 8:15pm on BOTH Monday and Wednesday, for the first five weeks of term.
- Salsa classes will begin at 9:15pm on BOTH Monday and Wednesday, for the first five weeks of term.
- Zouk classes, for those who sign up, will begin at 7:15pm on the first five Mondays of term.

Remember, you can sign up for Zouk just before the first class begins! $20 gets you into all 5 classes.


Take a well earned rest in the near future, but make sure you come to the Movie Night!

Dance on!

11 Apr 2017 Term One Complete!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for making Term One of 2017 so special! There have been a lot of new faces zipping around our dance floor, and we are delighted to see you all grow in skill and confidence.

Holiday Classes

The dancing doesn't stop with the holidays! Instead of regular classes, we will be holding free social dancing at DW1 in the Jack Mann Auditorium. This is a great opportunity to come and practice your skills, whilst also keeping your moves fresh in your mind for the new term. Entry is FREE, so bring your friends, and come have a good time.

Remember, we will go back to Burnside when Term 2 Classes begin. DW1 is only for the holidays.
Term 2 Classes will begin on the 1st of May.

Movie Night: Footloose

UCanDance has always loved putting on cool, dance-related movies to keep our members entertained. This time around, we will be holding a screening of Footloose during these holidays, one of the most iconic dance movies of all time.
Keep an eye out for upcoming information on Facebook. Details for this event will be released soon!


What a brilliant term it's been! Rest up during these holidays, cause Term 2 is going to be big!

Dance on!

30 Mar 2017 Term One Update!

Hello Everyone!

We've had a very productive term so far, and it's so good watching you all become better and better dancers with each passing week. We are now in the second half of Week Six, which means Term One is almost done! Here's a few things that you should keep in mind in the coming days...

End of Term Party

The End of Term party will be held next Saturday from 8:00pm - 11:00pm at the Burnside Dance Room (same venue as classes!). The theme is going to be High School Stereotypes, so get creative with your costumes! These parties are fantastic opportunities to display all the cool moves you've learned with your new friends, so make sure you come along and participate! Entry will be $5 for all participants.

Remember, there is a zero alcohol policy at all times for these parties.

Term Two Special Class: Zouk

We're delighted to announce that our special class for next term is Zouk! Lessons for this super cool dance will begin on May 1st and will run until May 29, the lessons will be run on Mondays between 7:15pm - 8:00pm. This means that from May 1st to May 29th, Modern Jive classes will begin at 8:15pm instead of 7:30pm, and Salsa classes will begin at 9:05.

Sign ups for this epic class will begin next Monday, and the cost is $20 for five Mondays of Zouk lessons! Please make sure that you pay upfront when signing up.

Last Week for Member T-Shirts

A lot of cool people have come up and said that they're keen to rock a fancy UCanDance member T-Shirt, so why not join in the fun? The last day to sign up for these shirts is next Wednesday, so get in quick before they disappear! The prices remain at $20 each, and if you're unsure about sizing come chat to the committee if you're curious about how the different sizes look.

Dance through the rain!

The wet weather can sometimes encourage us to stay huddled in our homes, but our classes will run regardless of rain, sleet, or snow, so come and move your feet to dance the cold away! If you need a ride to class, the group is the best place to find a ride with a fellow member, and there's a good chance that you live on someone else's route to class!

Plenty of bus routes travel in front of the school every day, you can find out more here.


Term One is almost done, it's been a great time so far, and we're only 1/4 of the way there!

Dance on!
