Welcome back for Semester 2

Hello Everyone!

A very warm welcome back to Semester 2 at UCanDance. We hope you've all had a relaxing break and are ready for another fantastic set of dance classes and events.

Class Location and Styles

Classes for this term will be held at Riccarton High School Hall, the same location as terms 1 and 2.

Modern Jive is making a return for term 2 so be sure to get involved with the class whether you're an experienced modern jiver or a complete beginner. Note that Monday Modern Jive classes are aimed at improvers and so will feature harder moves than the Wednesday class which is aimed at beginners.

The other style for Semester 2 is Rueda, a latin style which is one of my personal favorites. It involves pairs of dancers in a circle with a leader calling the moves and constant partner changes. It's heaps of fun and I encourage dancers of all experience levels to get involved with the class.

Because we're all dancing the same moves it's very important to stay up to date with the Rueda classes. To help with this only one set of moves will be taught each week. So the material taught in the Monday Rueda class will be repeated on Wednesday.

This should help people who can only make it to one class each week to keep up and will also provide valuable practice once we get into the trickier moves.
