📧 Winter Parties, Workshops and more

Kia ora Everyone,

Just one more month of Winter! We hope you're managing to stay dry and warm.

This weekend we have our annual Winter Weekender with:

  • buffet dinner tonight at C3 from Moveable Feasts (still spaces available)
  • followed by dancing
  • Saturday dance party and performance
  • plus friendly dancers from out of town

Let us know if you'd like to come or just turn up and pay at the door for the dance parties.

In August we have a long awaited Triples workshop where 3 dancers work together rather than 2. Becky, one of our teachers, led Deb and Matt in triples the other night, it was very fun and entertaining. We have invited Becky to present the workshop with us, so not only will there be 3 dancers together you will have 3 teachers too. Bonus fun all round.

We hope you're keeping well and look forward to seeing you on the dance floor soon.

Keep dancing, keep smiling,
Deb and Matt

Winter Weekender Information

👪 Triples Workshop 7 Aug

Triples is also known (more appropriately?) as Double Trouble is where one lead dances with two follows.

You can even switch roles so long as there is always one lead and two follow at any one time (otherwise it turns into something else).

There are particular skills required to make this work both from the lead and the follows. In this workshop we'll show you the techniques involved along with some moves so you're ready to hit the dance floor afterwards.

Triples is great for entertaining spare follows at any dance event and always draw some attention out in the social dance world 🙂

Either come on your own and rotate or BYO triple.
