Parties and New Highlights
Kia ora Everyone,
Have we had the pleasure of seeing you at dance lately? We really would like to have you with us. Dancing is a great activity that is so beneficial and it's great to see people learning a new skill and keeping active.
The Wednesday OMJ class tonight (18 Nov) is at Papanui High School just for this week, because Avonhead have a school function on. We put venue notices on the website well in advance and announce them at class, so we hope that everybody will know when there is a venue change like this.
Here's what's coming up over the next couple of weeks:
Fire & Ice Party this Saturday at C3, perhaps wear colours inspired by the theme or simply dress up a bit - everyone welcome.
Coaching & Practice for Couples workshop is our last dance workshop for the year, limited spaces available.
Modern Jive workshops in Cromwell Sunday 29 November run by a couple of teachers from Dunedin.
We're improving how you can keep in touch with what's going on especially if you're not on social media with our new Social Media Highlights notifications by email - go to your account on our web site for more info.
Finally, we've addressed the sound issue that occurred at C3 last week and have brought in our own speakers 🙂
Keep dancing, keep smiling
Deb & Matt
Fire & Ice Dance Party this Saturday
Note the later start time - 8pm.
There will be a mixer class 8pm to 8.30pm to get in the swing of the evening and meet other dancers. The mixer class is suitable for all levels of dancer.
Bring your own water bottle to refill, but there will be tea and coffee and slice provided for supper.
For Fire & Ice think reds and oranges or white and blues. Of course coming in theme is entirely optional. We'll also have the room split into a "warm" half and a cool half with the air conditioning 😛

- Time: 8:00 PM - 11:30 PM

Coaching & Practice for Couples Workshop
Get one to one feedback and coaching on your dancing and get immediate results. One of the fastest ways to improve any skill is to immediately address mistakes and then practise what is desired.
We have video recording with delayed playback so you can watch yourself and make immediate adjustments.
Spaces are limited to 8 couples so get in quick if you're interested.

Social Media Highlights
We've improved how you can keep uptodate with what's going on, even if you don't use much social media.
When you log into your account on our web site you might find a few changes.
There is now a checkbox to indicate whether you would like to receive our email newsletters (ie what you are reading now) or not.
Newsletters contain direct links to your account which can make it easier to view your attendance, top up credits, redeem rewards etc.
The default is to receive the newsletter.
NEW Social Media Highlights!!
If you're not a social media user you can still keep in touch with what's going on. We can email you interesting posts from our Facebook groups that cover anything from weekly class updates to inspiring dance videos and relevant social dance activities.
The default in your account is not to receive these emails, so if you're keen then follow the link below and choose from the options available. We'll also show highlights on the website if you prefer to see highlights but not receive any email.
Good luck to all Fevah dancers heading up to the Ceroc National Championships in Auckland on the 28th of November. There are quite a few of us attending and it will be a great chance to catch up with fellow dancers from different areas around the country.
The main aim is to have fun dancing and share our passion with others.
Workshops & Tea Dance in Cromwell 29 Nov
Message from Merekara who used to dance with us here in Chch but is now based in Dunedin:
Kia ora koutou! A few of us are planning a road trip to Cromwell/Central Otago later this month and because Tom & I are just a little bit Crazy - We've decided to teach workshops in CROMWELL! (Sunday 29th November)
We'd love for you to join us for a wonderful weekend of Central Otago delight and of course catching up with our Dance Whānau!
See down below for the button/link to the registration form for times, location and prices.
Suitable for all levels
White Elephant is an open levelled workshop aimed at inspiring our newer dancers and re-inspiring our more established dancers. We will cover some cool concepts, ideas and strategies that are easily incorporated back into your freestyle dancing. The way in which we are delivering this workshop is different to most, where you'll be shaping how the workshop unfolds and comes back together. This workshop came together after a period of reflecting on my own dancing and highlights some elements and ideas I have liked to have been exposed to early in my dancing journey.
Movement, Musicality & Madness
Suitable for all levels
Movement, musicality & madness is an open levelled workshop aimed at inspiring our newer dancers and re-inspiring our more established dancers. Incorporating musicality into movement that will reflect music, lyrics and rhythms of songs whilst being easily integrated into freestyle and not taking away from the flow of the dance. This workshop will focus on the “communication” of dance while still enabling lots of fun and a little bit of madness!
