2013 October Newsletter

Next 10 week Learn West Coast Swing term starts 8th October

Know someone wanting to learn to dance.  We can have them proficient in West Coast Swing by Christmas!  Invite them and we will donate $50 to charity.  That is because we are donating all profits in the month of November to a charity in time for Xmas.  The Intro to WCS course is $149.

Free Trivia and Dance this Thursday 3rd October

Come join us at the Southern Cross Turner Bowling Club this Thursday 3rd October for the club’s free trivia night.  Challenge your egg-head teachers who claim to be better than all the rest!  Be there by 6:45pm for Trivia registration.  The club has great Burmese food selection.  You also get to watch the master of greyhound racing selections work his magic on the Dapto Doggies!  Dance from 8:45pm.  (Trivia finishes at 8:40pm and we will have our DJ equipment there for some free WCS dancing and tuition.  Dancing concludes at 10pm.)

Dance party 4th October - Cancelled du to the long weekend :-(

There is no Friday night dance party on the 4th October due to the second consecutive long weekend.  So you definitely need to attend Trivia Triple Step Thursday to get your West Coast Swing dance fix.  Our next dance party is planned for the 1st November.  Same time, same place.  Happy Labor Day everyone!

Workshop - Sunday 13th October -‘Essentials for West Coast Swing’

This four hour course starts at 1pm at the Southern Cross Club Turner.  The 4 hours of tuition prepares you for our Tuesday Continuing level classes.  $35 prepaid or $40 at the door.  We go through important technique tips and work to instil key learning outcomes into your dance.  It is a fun day - and Em and Glenn are the chief funsters!  Please pre-book with Mark.

West Coast Swing Dance Events

Ever thought about a little WCS holiday?  Mark and Karolina are booked in at the following events coming up in October.  New Zealand West Coast Swing Open October 11 to 13.  Melbourne Australian West Coast Swing Open October 18 - 20.  We meet like minded people and have a blast at these events.  The workshops are key to improving our WCS and to ensuring you get all the latest tips and tricks at our dance classes and workshops in Canberra.

Future Plans

We are also heading to Raw Connecton's Swingtimate on the Gold Coast in December, NuRoc's Best of the Best in January 2014 in Sydney, DanceVibe's Swing Escape in the Hunter Valley in March and Raw Connection's Swingsation in May 2014.  Talk to us and we will assist with low cost accomodation and travel options.

Meg - Get well soon!

Meg - our own little bundle of joy and happiness - always smiling, patient, tolerant and makes you feel great about yourself and life! But our friend Meg's body has given her a hiccup and she is recovering from an operation.  She will be back in November.  We miss you Meg - get well quick.  Everyone in class wishes you well.

Charity time

We plan to make November our charity month.  We like to build our community and make a difference.  Please spread the word and get to class.  All profits for November will be donated on our student’s behalf to a charity just in time for Christmas.  This is where you can make a difference.  Get your friends to join us for our 10 week Introduction to WCS classes.  That in itself will generate a $50 plus donation to charity!

Party time - book the date in your calendar now!

And speaking of Christmas - keep the 7th December (a Saturday) free for our Christmas Party.  Put it in your diary now!  We will provide an inexpensive dinner/ or nibblies, dancing and drinks.  So - keep the date free and pre-pay in class.  Mark is finalising a suitable venue and we will update you in a week or so.

How many of our students use Twitter?

We do have an account. It is @Audacitydance.  We don't use it that often but we can use it more frequently if it helps tell you about newsletters, promotions, class changes, etc.  Let us know.  Email
