Sunday Afternoon Tea a Success

We had a great turnup at the Sunday Afternoon Tea at the Southern Cross Club. DJ Russ was AWESOME and the dancing was pretty much the same. There will be reegular dance parties all year, so look out for the dates.

We need a good Social Club organiser to get some Friday night outings arranged. Looking for a volunteer :-)

We have a Living Social deal going for the next 4 days for new customers only. So send the details through to your friends and get them to ring me on 61616159 for all the details.

Just $29 will get you four weeks of West Coast swing dance classes (value $70). This social style of swing dance pairs you with a variety of partners and is traditionally danced to pop, slower swing, blues and R&B music.

Plus it's a good excuse to nail three New Years resolutions in one - make some new friends, get some exercise and have a laugh! Plus there's no need to worry if you've got two left feet - classes are perfect for all ages and abilities. Muster up the courage, it's time to take to the floor
