20 Jan 2019 New year events

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are all having a great summer and are ready to get back into the new year of dance. We have a number of events coming up, outlined in this email.


Join us for the last three summer UCanDance-o-mat gatherings on Sundays 20 January (today), 3 February, and 17 February, from 4-6pm. We will play a variety of music for your dancing fun, so put on your dancing shoes and bring your friends!

UCanDance Picnic

The height of summer requires two things - good food and good friends. Next Saturday, 26 January, at 12pm, come to the Botanic Gardnes for lunch, chats, and dancing in the grass. Please bring food or drink to share, and a picnic blanket if you have one. You'll find us set up on Archery Lawn, near Regret Fountain (the sad mask fountain behind the museum).

More information and weather updates can be found on the facebook event: UCanDance Picnic

Clubs Day

The academic year is soon to begin, and with that comes Clubs Day. Clubs Day will be on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 February. If you wish to be involved with the club this year, you'll need to sign up on our 2019 members' list, available at Clubs Day and on the door when classes resume.
