Salsa Special Class

Hello Everyone!

Term 2 is kicking off with a bang with the first special class of the year, Salsa, beginning in week 2. If you're not planning on attending, have no fear of missing more dancing fun as normal classes will still be running every Monday and Wednesday. From week 2 Wednesday class times will be different to normal however!

Read on to learn about this time change as well as the awesome special class.

Salsa Special Class

The first Special Class of the year is Salsa, a lively Latin style. Special classes will run from 7:05 to 7:50pm every Wednesday between 2 May(week 2) and 30 May. Doors open at 7:00pm and the class will begin promptly at 7:05 so please be punctual. Checkout the Facebook event here.

The class is being taught by two incredible Salsa dancers, Mike and Shannon from Latin Fire. They will be giving a Salsa demonstration during class on the Wednesday of week 1 (April 25). Please note that this class will still begin at 7:00pm as in Term 1.

The cost of the class is $20 for 5 weeks of classes and you can sign up and pay with cash at any dance class prior to the beginning of the special class.

Follower and Lead numbers need to be balanced for the class so get in quick to secure a spot!

The format for Wednesday classes with the special class is:
- Salsa special class 7:05pm-7:50pm
- Modern Jive (7:55pm - 8:40pm),
- Free Dance (8:40pm - 8:45pm),
- Bachata (8:45pm - 9:30pm),
- Free Dance (9:30pm - 10:00pm).

First Class of Term 2

Classes will resume on Monday, 23 April. Doors open at 8:00pm and class will begin after everyone has paid so please be there at 8.00! Remember to bring a drink bottle, deodorant, and a spare shirt if needed.
Location remains the Riccarton High School Hall, so we'll see you all there on Monday.

Classes will follow on from material taught in term 1 so we'll still be learning Modern Jive and Bachata. This said, new dancers are always welcome as we can easily run through the basic step at the beginning of (or before) class.

If you need help learning or remembering specific moves you can speak to a teacher during free dance or before class.

The times for Monday classes are
- Modern Jive (8:15pm - 9:00pm),
- Free Dance (9:00pm - 9:15pm),
- Bachata (9:15pm - 10:00pm),
- Free Dance (10:00pm - 11:00pm).

Wednesday Week 1 Class

The first Wednesday class of the term will follow the same format as those in term 1 with doors opening at 7:00pm. There will be a Salsa demo from Mike and Shannon, the Salsa special class teachers, so definitely come along.

The class times are:
- Modern Jive (7:15pm - 8:00pm),
- Free Dance (8:00pm - 8:15pm),
- Bachata (8:15pm - 9:00pm),
- Free Dance (9:00pm - 10:00pm).

From week 2, Wednesday classes will begin at 7:55pm with doors opening at 7:00pm as outlined in the Salsa special class section.
