Welcome to 2020!

Hi everyone!

We are so excited to be bringing you another great year of UCanDance. We have so many fun things planned, and can't wait to see you at our first events!

Clubs Day

UCanDance will have a stall at Clubs Day as usual, just listen out for the music and come and see some of our dancers in action! We will be at Haere Roa (the new UCSA building) on Tuesday the 18th, and Wednesday the 19th, of February from 11am-2pm.

At the stall you can sign up as a member, which is free as always, and if you would like, purchase a concession card for our classes. These will be at our special discounted prices for a limited time only! Bring your friends along - UCanDance is one of the friendliest clubs out there, and a great way to meet new people! We will have some awesome tunes, and some of our crew will be demonstrating the various styles we teach at the club.

Clubs Day is a free event, and maps and Clubs Guides will be available on the UCSA website and at the event.

For more updates, find our Clubs Day event on Facebook here!

First Class of the Year

Classes resume on Monday the 24th of February, and will be held in DW1, a studio in the Jack Mann auditorium on Dovedale campus. We are so excited to be using this venue this year, especially as it's so close to the main campus!

In term 1, we will be teaching Modern Jive and Rueda. Modern Jive is a fun, easy to learn contemporary style, and Rueda is a Latin style danced in a circle with the moves called out! Our passionate teachers go through various forms of training and are outstanding dancers in their chosen styles.

Classes will run on Mondays and Wednesdays at the following times:

  • Doors open (7:00pm)
  • Modern Jive (7:15 - 8:00pm)
  • Small break for social dancing and notices (8:00pm - 8:15pm)
  • Rueda (8:15 - 9:00pm)
  • Social dancing (9:00 - 10:00pm)

At UCanDance, if it is your first time in class, it's free! This applies throughout the year, so bring your friends along any time for their free first class!

After the first week of the year, classes are $5.00 for students and $7.00 for non-students. If you come to class on Monday, you can come on Wednesday for free!

You do not need a partner or any previous dance experience to attend our classes! Just come as you are, ready to gain a healthy, fun new hobby and meet some awesome people. Good things to bring include a drink bottle, deodorant, and a spare shirt.

See you all soon!
