June News - no Blues

Reward for those Continuing Level students who support us in the Beginner level

We have a number of Continuing Level students who support our new Beginners by attending the 7:15pm class and joining in as Leads and Follows.  On several occasions, new students have expressed their appreciation that the more experienced dancers still come along to make the transition to WCS an enjoyable experience.  Your smiles and support are appreciated.  The reverse is also true where our more experienced dancers have told us how rewarding the experience is to see brand new starters with smiles and laughter and dance moves coming together after a few short weeks.  Keep it up folks!

Wine Tour details – 23rd June – new discount offer ($40 discount ends 9th June!)

We have decided to make a few changes to the Wine Tour.  We have decided to bring the Dinner Dance back into Canberra so that means the Winery Tour will return back to the ACT by 6pm.  This will give everyone 90 minutes to get ready for the Dinner Dance.  We still aim to visit 4 wineries and will be entertained by live music and dancing at our first stop.  The Wine Tour includes lunch as well as tastings at 4 wineries and a lesson in WCS Steals!  For those of you not in the know, wineries charge between $5 and $10 for tastings.  Our price for the Winery Tour on its own is $100 but as a special incentive, we are offering 10 stand alone tickets to join the Bus tour for $60 if purchased by 9th June (this Saturday).  Here is the link – the discount will be applied immediately.

Dinner Dance changes – join us at the Kurrajong for a sumptuous 3 course meal and dancing

We decided to bring the Dinner Dance back to the Kurrajong Hotel based on the great reviews of the venue and the food package.  We have chosen the 3 course menu option this time around and the raw cost to us is $75.  That makes the standalone discounted ticket to the Dinner Dance at $80 exceptional value for money.  The Kurrajong has that authentic 1930s decor, fireplaces, and great floor for dancing.  We have a DJ organised for the night and displays of WCS, Latin, Balboa and maybe some other styles.  Here is the link with the discount applied immediately.

Combined Wine Tour and Dinner Dance - $50 discount till 9th June – numbers limited!

In order to reflect the above changes, we are now offering a one-off earlybird discount of $50 on the combined Winery Tour and Dinner Dance.  This also applies to the first 10 purchases and the offer expires on the 9th June – this Saturday.  Be very, very quick!  Here is the link with the discount applied.

October Continuing Level focus – Reversing Spins

We are always looking to improve our teaching.  During the month of October we will be focussing on Reversing Spins.  This is a neat dance variation to enhance your Intermediate level WCS.  We have also varied the content of our Beginner level class so we can start a new batch of students on the first Tuesday of every month.  Please tell your friends and acquaintances.  And don’t forget, you get a free class when you introduce a new person to WCS.
