Fri 20 April: Fancy Freestyle Friday @ Avonhead

Wed 25 April: Anzac Day - class is on

Friday has a wide range of music from 80's through to current chart hits. It has a lively atmosphere with between 60 and 100 people aged 18 - 60. The hall has a huge floor and we provide mood lighting - ideal for getting into the weekend.

We have use of the staff car park and there is plenty of street parking nearby. See below for a map and more info.

Fancy Freestyle Friday

Once a month (usually the third Friday) we have a longer period of social dancing and an opportunity to dress up a little bit more than usual for a special night out. There will still be a beginner class and review but no intermediate class and freestyle starting from 8:15pm.

Our next date is: Friday, 20 April 2018

Beginner Review

The Beginners Review is included in the evening, it's 30 minutes long and is a great opportunity to ask questions and get one to one assistance.

Intermediates

Intermediate Class

We want everyone to have fun and be safe at our dance classes. To help with this we have a Dance WoF (Warrant of Fitness) that we ask everyone to pass before joining an intermediate class.

8.30Intermediate Class
9.00Intermediate review to 9.15. Get one to one help, learn extra style and advanced tips directly from the teacher.
  • We teach 2-3 moves, one of which may be repeated from the previous week.
  • We'll include extra technique points to help with safety and style.
  • There are 20 base moves and technique points that are often included each class.

Intermediate Review

The Intermediate Review happens immediately after the class and is taken by the class teacher. It's approximately 15 minutes long and is a great opportunity to ask questions and get one to one assistance.

Social Dancing

Social dancing / freestyle is the time to have some fun and put it all into practice. We turn the lights down and the volume up for party time!

8:15 - 8:30Easy tempo, shorter songs
9:00 - 10:15Great music variety!

We encourage everyone to ask each other to dance, sometimes this can be a little daunting but our culture is to accept invitations to dance and there's no pecking order!
