2017 November 27th – New Learners group


(Click on thumbnails to enlarge photos)

These shots and video were taken on the last night of our begineers’ intake in November 2017. We teach for about an hour then dance them with our club dancers. The video captures the atmosphere well.
We love our square dancing but there’s nothing like the sheer joy on the faces of new dancers who “made it” through their first bracket with the “professionals”.

Nearing the end of the year and also celebrating our President, Stephen’s, retirement from the workforce, we gathered at the Albion Hotel around the corner from our Plus Hall for dinner before the dance.
Always great to socialise (and eat!!) off the dancefloor now and again.

2017 October – November – New Mainstream graduates


Congratulations to the group who have completed the mainstream program in October 2017. Due to various absences due to holidays away and health, they have been presented their certificates over a period of several weeks as each returned to the club.
May you all enjoy the fruits of your labour and welcome to the wonderful world of Mainstream Dancing.

Our annual Hallowe’en theme was held this year on Oct 30th. Great support by our dancers – Mainstream, intermediate and even some brand new learners who just came in and would have got a bit of a surprise!
Thanks to all who helped decorate and brought some interesting supper!
Great outfits too everyone!

2017 September 23rd – 32nd Birthday

What a gas man! Our 32nd Birthday was celebrated with a Swinging 60s theme. Here are some great photos and a video of the night. Thanks to all who dressed the theme and, with the 60s music, made it a memorable night.

Our annual celebration of Fathers’ Day saw some nice new posters created by one of our members Diana Waters. Lovely cartoon “father & child” characters.
A lovely turn up and entertaining dancing. A huge supper with hot pies & sausage rolls to complement a great basket supper collection!
Here’s a video compilation taken on the night.Thanks Diana! (Appropriately the song is “My Old Man’s A Dustman”!)

Thanks to Diana W for the photos.

We once again celebrate Bastille Day (July 14) with our French Night at the Monday Mainstream club. Great to see everyone dressed in French colours and berets and stage decorated to suit. Gustav Eiffel would be proud.
To top it off a supper that was “Magnifique” – croissants, tarts and much much more.
Thanks everyone for your support – the atmosphere was lovely. Merci beaucoup!

Thanks to Diana Waters for the photos and video.

Our annual Pancake Night was well supported again and we managed to successfully integrate teaching of learners and intermediate dancers, Mainstream dancing and the flip’n’catch that is the joy of pancakes. The Pancake King crew – Scott and Kaye – doing a marvellous job and Scott has perfected the art of flipping these babies. Pity we all haven’t necessarily mastered the art of catching them!!

In an effort to allow more frequent intakes for new dancers, we’re running three streams Monday nights now. Intermediate (6 – 7 then 8 – 8:30pm), New learners (7 – 8:30pm) and Mainstream (8 – 10:15pm). Some overlaps to allow good mixing.
Here’s a photo of one of the mixes. What a sharp looking group!
