28 May 2017 Parties and Adventures!

Hello Everyone!

The second term has been quite a whirlwind so far! We've only got a couple weeks left until crunch time for exams, make sure to have a dance or two when you're taking study breaks, it's good for blood flow!

End of Term Party - Saturday 3rd June

It's almost time for another party! This is the perfect opportunity for you guys to showcase all the skills you've picked up this semester, because we'll playing songs from ALL the styles we've learnt!

The party is being held at Riccarton High School's Main Hall, and the party will start at 8:00pm. We've decided on the really cool theme of "Decades", so bring a costume that fits a decade of your choice!

The cost of entry will be $5 each, for everyone.

Closer to the date of the party, we will post a little map on the group so that nobody gets lost. Remember, this is being held next Saturday, the 3rd of June, from 8:00pm until 11:00pm!

Hanmer Trip

One of the best events of the year is coming up, and you don't want to miss out! UCanDance's annual Hanmer Trip will be taking place on the weekend of the 15th and 16th of July. This annual event is one of the highlights of our year, and always creates good memories/photos/banter!

What happens: we travel up there on the Saturday, with an organised roster of drivers who will be assigned to taking a certain number of people each. On Saturday night, we're having a cool costume party in the hall, and the theme for the Hanmer Party will be: Childhood Aspirations!
We will also be providing dinner for that night, and breakfast for the next morning, both being served in the lodge that we will all be staying in.

On Sunday, we take the cars to the Hot Pools, and spend some time warming up/recovering in the pools, before climbing back into the cars and heading back to the big city!

Gear List: Make sure you pack enough clothes for a two day trip to Hanmer in the winter. It will be cold at times, and rain is never ruled out, so dress warmly and plan for rain! Also, don't forget to bring your swimming gear for the Hot Pools, and of course, your costume for the party!
Note:
you will not need to pay for breakfast and dinner, but you might still want to bring money if you would like to purchase snacks.

The price for the whole trip is $70, and that covers EVERYTHING. (except for little snacks).
We only have 40 spaces for the whole trip, so sign up quickly on Monday night, in class, to confirm your place!


Big trips and cool parties are coming up, don't miss out!

Dance on!

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.
