Fevah Modern Jive

December Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

How fast has this year flown by? Thank you so much for supporting our dance classes and events. We hope you will want to continue through the Christmas period and into 2019. Dancing is so good for you and we want to keep bringing people together to live in the moment, so we have classes every Thursday through the holidays and only close for 8 of the other nights. Not to mention throwing a New Year's Eve Party again this year to boot!

But wait... the year isn't finished yet! ...

Come along to a Fevah class on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between now and 20 December 2018 to automatically go into our December lucky draw! As long as we have your current contact details you are eligible to be a winner. Awesome prizes worth over $700 to be won including:

  • 3 gift vouchers for Mitre 10 Mega Papanui from Mitre 10
  • Supermarket voucher sponsored by TotalPOS
  • Personal development course from Holistic Health & Wellbeing
  • Personal training session from Janine Burns
  • Mall voucher from Sonia Stott
  • Laser cut wood birthday calendar from JS Hobby Cuts
  • Eco-friendly soaps and Beeswax kit from Move2eco
  • Nutrimetics products from Rachel Carlyon
  • Nerium Moisture Boost Eye Patches from Cherie Alexander
The winners will be announced at the Christmas party. You do not have to be there to accept the prize, but that is why we do need your current contact details ;)

We also want to draw your attention to two important changes for 2019:

  • There'll be a couple of changes to our pricing structure to reward dancers for attending regularly and to be able to maintain the discounted prices for dancers who have been 20 or more classes. More details in the next newsletter.
  • We will not be holding classes on Fridays next year, just a monthly freestyle.
So tonight - Friday the 14th of December as it is our last class night on a Friday. Please come and celebrate the end of an era with us.

Keep smiling, keep dancing!
Deb and Matt

Sponsors and their prizes

Last Friday Class Tonight!

Tonight is the last Friday class as they are not being held in 2019, so come on down and join us for our final night (we will be having monthly Friday freestyle only nights in 2019, dates available at class).

There'll be a lifts demo just before the intermediate class by Deb and Matt and some of our Fevah Flyers who attended the lifts workshops in October. We're repeating the workshops in January for those who have since expressed an interest - come see what you too can achieve!

The classes will be a Deb and Matt double this evening, with Matt teaching Beginners and Deb on Intermediate.

Tonight there'll also be tea and coffee and, if you can, please bring a small plate to share to round off the evening in style with a bit of a celebration of great Friday night memories (a bit like a tea dance).

See you there!

We will get straight into some socialising and dancing from 8pm.

The venue has a great outdoor area for chatting and resting if the weather is fine.

We'll count down to midnight together and provide everyone with a lovely little glass of bubbles (non-alcoholic) to make a toast. Hooray! It's the start of a whole new year full of dancing :D

We'll be going till 1am, so we are bound to need snacks! Please bring a plate to for a shared supper.

Apart from the n.a. bubbles provided at midnight, water on tap and tea and coffee, you may BYO drinks (and glasses) but please take your empties home with you and remember:
If you've had too much to drive, you've had too much to dance.

Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

Get ready for one of the biggest Modern Jive events in Australasia!

Three days of dancing and next year we're at a new venue right in the heart of the city. We already have a number of registrations from around New Zealand and Australia and so it's gearing up to be another spectacular weekend.

Come and join in, even if you are brand new to dancing, or just be a spectator, there will be grandstand type seating for a great viewing position.
