AGM Tonight!

Hello Everyone!

We've come to the last week of term, and it's time to pass the torch onto the future leaders of UCanDance!
Week 12 is notorious for being a rather action-packed week in both clubs and university itself, and UCanDance is no different...
The upcoming week includes the AGM, the Chocolate Giveaway, and the final End of Term Party!

AGM Monday 16th October

The AGM is one of the most important events of the entire year where we go over what happened in the last financial year, whilst also electing our UCanDance committee for 2018!
We encourage as many members to attend as possible, since this is the best opportunity to get your voices heard for which direction you think the club should be heading in next year.
We also supply some top-quality food and beverages for those who attend!

The AGM is TONIGHT, Monday October 16, in Kirkwood Room KH03 starting at 7:30pm.
If you want to discuss committee roles with the current members, the Committee will be there at 6:45pm.
ANYONE can run for committee, so if you're interested, throw your hat in the ring!

2017 Committee Roles
- President: Courtney Brown
- Vice President: Yuri Filatov
- Treasurer: Finn LeSueur
- Secretary: Regan Harding
- General Committee - Noel Bisson, Matthew Ruffell, Ollie Scott, Phoebe King.

UCanDance Annual Chocolate Giveaway

Now this is something we can all get behind: FREE CHOCOLATE!
Instead of having a proper class this Wednesday, we like to focus our time on having a series of different dances that people can participate in, all with the common goal of winning chocolate!

Our panel of judges will be grading a solid number of different styles and speeds that we've all been learning throughout the year, combined with an abundance of party games and giveaways.
Everyone will be leaving with something in their bellies at the end of the night!

The Chocolate Giveaway will be held at Riccarton High School Hall, on Wednesday October 18, starting at 7:00pm.

From Jack 'n Jill to Role Reversals, it's gonna be a blast for all! So come along and try your hand at winning some free chocolate, entry is FREE for all!

Final End of Term Party

It's almost time for Halloween! There's a solid amount of us who celebrate this holiday in New Zealand, so in true UCanDance fashion, we're making it the theme for our final End of Term Party!

The End of Term Party will be held at Riccarton High School Hall, on Saturday October 21, starting at 8:00pm with $5 entry for all. The theme is HALLOWEEN, so get spooky!

Halloween themed food and drink will make an appearance, so come along and round off the year in style!

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.

Wednesday Time Changes for Term 4

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!

Hanmer is almost here!

Hello Everyone!

Hopefully everyone is starting the recovery period for exams! Before the new semester kicks off, we've got a pretty exciting event coming up soon: the annual UCanDance Hanmer Trip!

Information: July 15 - July 16

Meet in the UCSA Carpark, outside the Foundry, at no later than 9:45am on Saturday July 15.

This years trip will be during the last weekend before Term 3, from the 15th to the 16th of July. We plan to leave Christchurch at 10:00am, with an assigned vehicle roster taking everyone up to Culverden for lunch, then stopping briefly to take in the sights at Frog Rock, before continuing on to Hanmer.

Once in Hanmer, we will set up our rooms and bunks at Alpine Adventure Holiday Park, then we'll all hang out/explore the town/do whatever we like, until it's time to get back to the lodge for dinner (cooked by our lovely committee).
The party in the Hanmer Hall will be starting around 7:30pm, with transport being provided by the rostered people who drove from Christchurch. Everyone is welcome to attend the party, even if you aren't participating in the entire trip itself. After the party, we will head back to the lodge and chill out for the rest of the night, but don't stay up too late!

Breakfast will be provided for the next morning, and then we will all be heading up to the Hot Pools for a post-party soak. Lunch will also be provided by the committee on the pool grounds.
Bring all your gear with you to the pools (you can leave most of it in the cars that will be travelling back to Christchurch), as we will not be returning to the lodge after we leave for the Hot Pools.
After the Hot Pools, everyone will pile back into their assigned cars and head back to Christchurch! If you need to get back to the city slightly earlier, this can also be arranged with the committee and drivers, so just ask!

Gear Requirements

Dress and pack appropriately for two days for an alpine environment during winter! Definitely bring your own sleeping bags and pillows, along with a practical supply of warm and wet weather clothes.
Remember to bring togs for the pool!
And don't forget your costume for the party! The theme is Childhood Aspirations, so get creative!

Costs and Benefits

The cost for the entire trip, including main meals, the party, and the Hot Pools, is $70.

Electronic sign-ups are now available here, get in quick to secure your space!

If you'd like to buy snacks, such as food in Culverden, you will be required to pay for this yourself.
Every meal provided by the committee will contain vegan and gluten free options for those who require them.

Drivers who are taking people will be financially compensated for petrol after the trip concludes.


This is one of the best events of the year, so come and make some great memories with your dance friends!

Dance on!

Regan Harding
UCanDance Secretary

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!

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.

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.

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

Dance on!

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!

Regan Harding
UCanDance Secretary

Picnic, T-Shirts, and Concession Cards

Hey everyone!

Two weeks of classes done and dusted! It's been great meeting all of our new members, and welcoming back those who have been with us before. I hope you're all starting to get comfy in your dancing shoes!

Sunday Picnic Postponed

Our first social event now has a different date! It will be held on March 19, a.k.a next Sunday. We're going to be holding a picnic on Ilam Fields starting from 2:00pm, complete with food, games and socialising! You are strongly encouraged to bring something for yourself, and maybe a little something to share too. Feel free to bring along some outside games as well, such as frisbees or a football.

Member T-Shirts

If you would like to order a sleek UCanDance member T-shirt, we are officially taking in orders, which you can put your name down for in class. There will be a picture of the design next to the laptop where sign-ups will be recorded.
The price for these shirts is $20 each, and you can choose to pay upfront when you register your name, or alternatively hold your payment until the shirts arrive. If you are unsure about your size, you are welcome to have a look at the 2017 Committee shirts for reference.

Concession Cards Prices

Our special price on concession cards has come to an end, which means that the cards will return to their standard pricing of $25 for a student, and $45 for a non-student.
Remember, these cards cover 10 weeks of dancing (including a free 11th week), so if you are a regular at UCanDance, we would strongly encourage you look into picking up your very own card.

I hope you're all having fun with your new friends and skills!

Happy Dancing!

UCanDance Secretary

Welcome to UCanDance 2017!

Hello Everyone!

A very warm welcome to all of our new members who came and had a chat with us on Clubs Day, and also to those who are returning to us for another year of dancing! It's going to be a great year, and we can't wait to get started.

Sign Ups

If you've received this email, that means that you're officially a member of our club!
If you are an exisiting member of UCanDance from a previous year, we would strongly encourage you to update your details so that we know you're still keen to be a part of our family! Click here to re-sign up.

If you've moved on from the club, and would like to stop receiving emails, you can unsubscribe here.

First Class

Our first class kicks off this Monday at 7:30pm, located in the Burnside High School dance room. The doors will be open from 7:00 onwards, so be there early when we start the class at 7:30! There should be plenty of parking available at the area on the map, which you can see here.

You can also click 'Going' on the Facebook Event, and invite your friends who might also be interested.
There is going to be a lot of brand new members and dancers there, so beginners are encouraged to take this chance to join in with like-minded people.

The group is the BEST way to keep in touch with other members of the club, and to keep an eye on any important updates that might happen from day-to-day. You can also use the group to arrange carpooling, make a comment thread for music requests, and organise trips to other social dancing events.

Dance Etiquitte

If you're completely new to dancing, we strongly recommend that you take a look at our Dance Etiquette. UCanDance is very proud of the comfortable and social atmosphere at our club, and we want to make sure everyone comes to class feeling like they can participate with anyone and everyone.

The key information is to be comfortable, clean, and considerate. Wear clothes and shirts that you can move in: t-shirts, shorts, jeans, skirts, etc.
If you are wearing HEELS, you MUST wear caps on them, as we would like to keep Burnside's new dance floor as smooth as possible.
Safety and Harassment are two issues that take priority at UCanDance, so if you have any concerns at all, you are encouraged to talk to any of the committee with discretion assured.
If you would like to keep your concerns gender-specific, Matthew is our male Harassment Officer, and Phoebe is our female Harassment Officer.


We've got a brilliant year ahead of us and we're looking forward to all of you being a part of it! Hope to see you guys on Monday!

Regan Harding
UCanDance Secretary

Welcome to the New Year!

G'day everyone!

If you're receiving this email, it means you were a part of UCD sometime in the hopefully not too distant past (woo!). First and foremost, hopefully you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years, and you're all pumped for another year of fun antics and laughs with us. There have been a couple of minor changes for 2017:

New Venue for Semester One + Time Change

First, we have a new venue! Those of you with us last year will know we had class at Riccarton High, however a month ago they realised they were too busy for us in Semester One, so Burnside High came to our rescue. They have a brand new, cushioned dance floor imported from Australia over the summer (so dancers in heels MUST wear heel caps so we're invited back again if necessary). Wednesday classes will also be starting a tad later due to yoga in the room before us, so turn up at 8:00pm for classes to start around 8:15pm.

Upcoming Classes

This year our classes will be MJ (with a new, exciting syllabus) and a term of Bachata, followed by three terms of Salsa so you'll all be Salsa pros! We will also be having holiday and study week/exam classes this year, which will be treated somewhat like a special class, so stay tuned for more info on that later in the term!

Clubs Day

Clubs Day will also be happening next Tuesday and Wednesday (21st and 22nd), so to be included on our mailing list and so the system knows what active members we have in 2017, even you, our wonderful past dance members, need to sign up again (don't worry, you can also do this in our dance classes if you're too busy on Clubs Day). If you are free on Clubs Day and you want to have a bit of a boogie or want to stand in some shade to help people sign up and eat lollies, come along to the UCD stall (we'll be the fun stall playing music and dancing), all are welcome!



Well, that's all for now! We hope to see all your beautiful faces on the 21st and 22nd of February for Clubs Day and at our first class for 2017 on the 27th of February!

Thanks all,

Courtney Brown
UCanDance President

And,

Regan Harding
UCanDance Secretary

A Message from President Lauren

Due to events over the weekend, UCanDance would like to share our condolences with everyone and hope that you have safe and helpful support networks around you. We understand that some people may not be feeling like turning up to dance this week, which is absolutely fine - take your time to rest and recover, and don't be afraid to talk to those around you if you need. Stay safe and be well, each and every one of you is awesome and a valued part of our club <3

Hey everyone!

Thanks to everyone who came along to our Hanmer Trip and dance party, your costumes were awesome and we had such a great time!

Ball

Our Enchanted Ball is only six weeks away now! Tickets will be available very shortly through Dash Tickets, keep your eye out on the Facebook Group.

Committee Members and Harrassment Issues

We have had a couple of changes to the committee and now have Yuri and Courtney as part of the committee.
We would also like to remind you that you can approach any committee member about any harrasment issue at any time. This is confidential and the club has policies in place to ensure that UCanDance is a safe, fun, environment for all at all times.
President Lauren and Yuri fill the specific roles of Harrassment Officers and we take your complaints very seriously.

New Member Sign Ups

If you brought a friend along for Bring a Friend night and don't think they had a chance to 'officially' sign up to the club, send them this link, which allows them to sign up to our mailing list. This means we can easily keep track of how many members the club has and we really appreciate it.

Come Dance at Clubs Day!

Hey everyone!

A short bonus weekend email from your favourite university dance club!

Clubs Day

Winterlude Clubs Day is this coming Monday (18th July) between 11am and 2pm.
We will be based outside in the quad area between the Central and Arts Lecture blocks (near Cafe 1894). We will post a photo of the exact location on Facebook on Monday morning.
We would love if you all came for a dance or two. It would be particularly impressive if we could get a big group together to do Rueda. This will be at 11:10am, 12:10pm and 1:10pm.

Ice Cream Containers

Now for the strange requests portion of this email...
For the Hanmer trip we need a number of empty (clean) ice cream containers, the 2L square ones.
So if you have any lying around, unwanted, please bring them along to class.
Or, you could just eat as much ice cream as possible over the next two weeks!

Have a nice weekend everyone, we'll see you on Monday for Clubs Day and regular classes and on Wednesday for Bring a Friend night!

Dance Etiquette

If you're new to dancing I recommend you read our information about Dance Etiquette.
The key information is to be comfortable, clean, and considerate.
Wear clothes and shoes you can move in: t-shirts, shorts, jeans, skirts etc. You are welcome to wear dance heels but runnning shoes are fine too.
We also take safety and harassment issues very seriously at UCanDance, so if you have any concerns please let a committee member know.

Dancing Pro Tips: Dancing and Class Etiquette

Hey, dancers!
It was great to see so many of you at the mid-semester party this weekend!
Since we don't have class for a couple of weeks I thought I'd give you guys a bunch of pro tips on how to conduct yourselves at dance!

Tip 1: Be on time

Show up early to class. If you are early you can have a chat to your friends or get straight into some dancing. We understand that sometimes people run late, but try to come in quietly so as not to disturb the class.

Classes will be starting promptly at 7:30 next term, so make sure you're not late!

Tip 2: Listening

Is the teacher talking? Then you should be listening and your conversation should halt. Try turning early if you want a longer chat or wait until after the lesson.

If you are talking while the teacher is trying to teach, this can make their life difficult and detract from the value of the class for everybody else.

Tip 3: Follow instructions

Been asked to take your partner's hands? Do so, and start listening. Don't rush ahead. Know the move already? Focus on a technique point to improve it. For example, focus on your posture, tension, or movement. If you can both lead and follow the move well and understand the associated safety issues, then you could help your partner if they are struggling.

It can be confusing for both you and your partner if you start doing moves out of sync with what the teacher is talking about or calling out. Be patient and move with the class; this will help the class progress with a good flow.

Tip 4: Let the teachers teach

If you are stuck or your partner is stuck, raise your hand. Ask the teachers to go over the point or help you in the break. Helping your partner is great when they are still working on something that the class is collectively moving past and if you can fix it that's helpful. However, there is no need to teach ahead. Also, stick to what is being taught in class. You can experiment with other moves during freestyle.

If you speed ahead then you may confuse your partner and disrupt the flow of class. Make sure to stay in sync with the teacher and to raise your hand if you have a question.

Tip 5: You know this

If you know the moves and so don't think you have anything to work on, ask the teachers during a song or before class for something to think about or focus on. You can always improve!

Even professional dancers can learn something new by attending a beginners class. There is literally always something you can be improving on. Take the time to progress in time with the class and to focus on what you need to improve on.

Tip 6: Don't teach sits/dips/tricks yourself

On a slightly more serious note: if you would like to perform a sit/dip/trick that you do not already know then you should ask one of the teachers. UCanDance takes its safety very seriously and students who have not been properly trained in teaching sits/dips/tricks are prohibited from teaching sits/dips/tricks. Committee members and teachers will not hesitate to reprimand you for doing this during any of our events or classes.


If you would like to read more about class etiquette, how to dress for classes and parties and how to act on the dance floor then you can read a set of guidelines here on the UCanDance website.

Feel free to ask the teachers about anything mentioned above or that we may have missed. We are always open to help out, give advice and be advised.

Thank you for reading this slightly more serious email!
