4 Sep 2017 Term 4 and Rueda!

Hello Everyone!

It almost pains me to say it, but this is the last term of UCanDance before we all start thinking about locking ourselves in for the wild ride known as final exams. But before we start thinking about all that, we've got another fun time coming up very soon...the Rueda Special Class!

Note: there are going to be time changes for Term 4 because of the special class!

Rueda Special Class

As far as group dances go, Rueda is a staple of UCanDance in recent years, with a flurry of people rushing to the centre of the floor once the call is announced. If you want to be a part of this phenomenon, you should sign up to the special class this term!

Rueda will be held every Wednesday, for the first 5 weeks of Term 4. Held from 7:15pm - 8:00pm, the first class will begin on Wednesday the 13th of September.

The cost of this special class is $20 for all 5 classes. You can pay electronically, or on the door just before classes on Monday the 11th and Wednesday the 13th of September.
See the event for more details on how to pay electronically.

14 Aug 2017 Ball this weekend!

Hello Everyone!

We're less than a week away from one of the most anticipated events of the year, the annual UCanDance Ball! This year's event will be held this Saturday, August 19, starting at 7:30pm and finishing at 12:00am.

Tickets

Tickets can be purchased online through Dash Tickets here, $18 for Students and $20 for Non-Students. Feel free to also grab tickets on door for classes tonight and on Wednesday night for the same prices.

They can also be purchased at the event's door at $25 for both Students and Non-Students, so get your tickets as soon as you can to get the best deal!

Venue

The ball is being held at Brazilian Beatz Dance Academy, located on 407 Tuam Street. We are very lucky to be able to make use of the UV lighting inside the studio, in order to make our theme really stand out!

Parking is available around the entire building, and there is also a bus stop directly in front of the building.

Theme + Music

Since we have such a good opportunity to use a venue with UV lighting, we've decided to make the most of it with our Glow In The Dark theme! Get bright and beautiful with body/face paint, or just make sure something you're wearing is glow-able! (hint - white shirts are very useful for this).
We have a themed photo booth this year to capture all your cool memories for the night!

IMPORTANT - PAINT MUST BE COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE ENTERING. Paint is not to be applied on-site.

Our playlist will be a mixture of everything we've covered this year, make sure to have a look at the videos on the Facebook group to refresh your memory on the moves!

Around 9:30pm there will be some awesome performances from some of our very own UCanDance alumni, look forward to a bundle of energetic displays!

Food

Savoury nibbles and sweet snacks will be provided at no additional charge, with options for every dietary requirement available. Soft drinks and water are also available, and will definitely come in handy as the night progresses!

Remember, this is a zero-alcohol event. People who are intoxicated or in possession of alcohol will be asked to leave.


Shine bright like a fluro diamond!

Dance on!
