Fevah Modern Jive

August Newsletter

Hi Everyone,

It's been an unexpectedly buzzing week with lots of dancers new and regular heading out for a dance regardless of the cold weather.

We're coming up to our third weekend of social dancing in a row with our Freestyle Friday tonight at Avonhead, we look forward to seeing you there, more details below.

Next weekend we have our monthly Tea Dance and then later in the month prepare to sizzle in Winter with our "Baila!" Latino Dance Party!

Have you done all the Foundation Workshops yet? On the 11th of Aug is our Intermediate Foundations designed to give you a solid platform of technique to support you throughout your dancing years. Skipping on the foundations often prevents dancers from gaining all the fun experiences available later on.

Finally, there's been some major effort put in by our IT department (aka Matt) in getting all your attendance and reward information online, see below for more information.

Keep smiling, keep dancing!
Deb and Matt
