Kia ora Everyone,

Welcome to Springtime where the warmer evenings makes it a bit easier to get out and enjoy all the fun times that dancing has to offer.

We're warming up for some great events for the rest of the year, here in Christchurch we have our own Refresh Dance Weekend in November featuring workshops, parties and a small competition - ideal for anyone wanting to give it a go. We're welcoming back New Zealands top dance podiatrist on the Sunday of Refresh (see below for more info).

Make sure you use your barcode at class to collect reward points, between 20 and 40 credits are earned by dancers each month. Also we now have PayWave which means you can pay with your phone or even watch! (there's no surcharge).

We're still finalising our replacement for Tuesday nights, our fall back is a nice venue in the south west of Christchurch but on Fridays, we'll keep you posted. Talking of classes, tonight is Deb's 2,500th class that she's taught on average that's over 10 classes a month for over 18 years 😛

Keep dancing, keep smiling
Deb & Matt
