Enjoying the experience – learners with club dancers

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”.

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! Photo Credit – Bruce Forster – Dancing Days Magazine
The new graduates – welcome to Mainstream dancing!

Congratulations to our latest group of dancers who have just completed the Mainstream program. Welcome to the wonderful world of club dancing.
It was a fun night also celebrating Easter with loads of Hot Cross Buns & chocolate eggs. Our Square Dance Society president Heather was also there to welcome the group.
Dance your hearts out everyone!
Starting mid May, we have opened our doors for new learners to come in and try modern square dancing.
We welcome new intakes right up until the end of June so spread the word.
We’ve been running three weeks now and a nice group is forming. It’s a happy atmosphere and we’re learning the moves quite quickly.
Looking forward to welcoming any new starters – don’t miss out on this opportunity!
Any queries, contact us on 8353 1749 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

On the first Monday of every month we hold a dance for “Gen Y” – younger people who just want to try square dancing and dance with their friends or make new ones.
We run from 6:30pm to 8pm and no experience is needed for any of these sessions. We vary the choreo and yet welcome newcomers any time.
The atmosphere is great and man, these guys and girls can move! Learning and dancing fast to some great music, there’s a lot of energy expended.
They usually finish off by nipping out for dinner somewhere close and having a good laugh about it all.
We’re still running these so watch out for notifications on Facebook. First Monday of each month – 6:30pm – 8pm. Spread the word.

Congratulations to our new graduates! It’s been a lot of fum and a lot of learning to master this mainstream program but we made it. A nice crowd was there to help welcome our new grads and it was a really lovely atmosphere. Thanks to Heather Wheeler (Society president) and Jan Stephens (vice president) for the welcoming words and “packs” presented. We welcomed a couple of interstate visitors, Con and Alma, from Mackay in Qld too. Special thanks to Les Tulloch who came along on request to set up gear for us as Graham had injured his back. Also thanks to John Casey and Ian Rutter for the calls on the night too.
Welcome to our newest members of the club and may you enjoy many years of fun and friendship with us!

What a great crowd! We opened our doors to the public as a fund raising dance in support of the Cancer Care Centre. We ran a night of alternating teaching and Mainstream and threw in some mixer dances as well.
A great atmosphere and by all reports, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The President of the Cance Care Centre was there dancing the night away and said few words to welcome everyone and share an amazement at what square dancing really is – a whole lotta fun.
All proceeds from the night will be tallied up and presented to the Centre shortly and we thank all of you who came along and supported the night.
