Well the Multi-cultural dance party turned out to be a great event and the
Novacastrians asked that we consider turning this into an annual event.That sounds like a great idea to me so later
in the year we will book Salsabor again and start promoting with the other West
Coast Swing dance schools.2017 may
require a bigger venue!
Our next big date – 19th March 2016
The 2016 Connect and Participate (CAP) Expo at the Kingston
Markets starts at 11am at the Old Bus Depot Markets, 21 Wentworth Avenue,
Kingston.Last year over 8,000 people
came through the stalls and connected with community organisations.We will be promoting Audacity Dance there and
hopefully we get to perform a dance or three.It would be great if some volunteers can be available to look after the
stall, hand out fliers, recruit fun people to join us and maybe demo West Coast
Swing.Drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help.We
will open a stall between 11am and 3pm so let me know when you might be
Dance Party 19th March
That evening there will be a dance party at the **pending
confirmation** Belconnen Arts Centre starting at 7:30pm.The dance party is free for term pass holders
and $15 for everyone else.All monies
raised go to the Social Club.(N.B. We
were planning a dance party for 12/3 but we forgot about Canberra Day holiday
and people being away.)
Your support for the Audacity Charity
Your attendance at Audacity allows us to make a $35 a month
contribution to the UNHCR humanitarian project in Syria.Thank you.
Time to get over the workday blues and look forward to
Tuesday with some fun dancing with Karolina and Mark showing you some cool
moves at the BAC.Karolina is looking to enjoy her first time back teaching in
a while so let’s everyone get along for a great night of dancing.There will be a focus on lady styling tips
and maybe a couple for the guys as well.
Who do we congratulate?
Also – its celebration time!We had a bunch of our dancers at
Best of the Best on the Gold Coast last weekend with four finalists!They win with all the dancing and workshops
and come away smiling after a great weekend away.But not only that, Randall and Shanyn got 2nd
placing in Strictly Swing and Emily and Deb Ashcroft are winners having also
made finals.A huge congratulations to
all who went.
Wannabe a Wallaby?Wear
rugby paraphernalia and win
And it’s a mini farewell.Mark is off to the UK to follow the Wallabies in the Rugby World
Cup.Anyone wearing Aussie colours or a
footy jumper or scarf goes into a draw to win $50 towards a term 4 pass.(I’d guess that’s about a 1 in 10 chance of
Win a term 4 pass discount
Term 4 passes go on sale this week.$149 gets you term 4 plus the two additional Fun!damentals
classes to be held during the term break.That’s exceptional value!And to
make it more attractive – pay your term fee up front this week (preferably) or
next and anyone purchasing their term 4 pass goes into a draw to win a private
lesson (to the value of $90) or a $90 discount off their term pass.(Better than a 1 in 20 chance!!!)
Feel like a winery tour with Pizzazz?
Karolina is looking at a winery tour more in the Peter
Slipper tradition than the Mark Farrell guzzler.The idea – 3 wineries (of course) but throw
in a first class restaurant experience at Flint
in the Vines.Final details to be
worked out but if interested, put your name down in class or email email@example.com this
week. Price range $140 - $160. Early November timeframe.
That should take care of any residual Mondayitis!So see you all tomorrow night where everyone wins!
Here is your pre term 3
newsletter detailing the following exciting snippets of news:
New Term starts Tuesday 21 July
There will be no change to
the structure of the evening at this point as a number of new starters could
not make the later time.Therefore
classes start as close to 7:30pm as possible (allowing the room to clear
beforehand.)All the Audacity teachers
are hugely appreciative of the Intermediate dancers who help out in the first
five or so weeks of our Intro to WCS
course.It assists our new starters
tremendously and the numbers add a great vibe to the class.
The price structure remains
$149 for the ten week term unless you have a discount offer through Mark or
Karolina – or you are claiming a reward.Trevor, Brendan, Leanne and Dean
all earned rewards for either introducing new students to WCS or for being
extremely social and participative at our dance parties.
Pay by direct deposit, PayPal or Credit Card
Pre-payment of your term fee
would be appreciated as it saves time before class.(BSB and account details are available by contacting Mark.)To pay by credit card
please call me and I will process it over the phone and send you a receipt by
Going on holidays?
If you are going on holidays or for some reason you will
be away with work for more than four weeks during the term then
please see me for our casual rate program that only applies in those
Remember to join the group as
this is where we announce socials and there are posts from other dance school
upcoming events. Anyway – Emily, Dean and
Leanne shared the best dressed award in the eye of the judge (Mark).Their prize
is a heavily discounted term pass.
The feedback about the venue
was positive.It is a good size for our
group’s current size and the floor was well rated by dance aficionado
We raised $250 at the social
that goes towards assisting earthquake victims in Nepal.($190 on the night plus Trevor isn’t going to
claim his reward so Audacity will throw an additional $60 to the appeal.)
Bridal dance lessons
Karolina knocks out some outstanding choreography for wedding couples.Paul and Erika have a neat little routine
they are polishing now so we hope to show that to you in class in a few weeks
So make sure you recommend
our services to your friends.Our rates are
highly competitive and the value for money from the time and effort we put in
exceeds all other dance studios – guaranteed!
Farewell and Bon Chance!
Courtney is off to greener pastures so we will sadly miss her as she heads off
on her new adventure.Paul and Erika’s
wedding is in the USA in August.The
social club will be working with both Courtney and Paul and Erika to see if we
can have our next social in celebration of their respective new and happy
upcoming life events.
Help us build our community!
Please all remember that this
great community of West Coast Swing only grows through your positive
encouragement of friends, colleagues and admirers to come learn to dance. And you get two rewards. The great feeling of knowing you have made a difference by enhancing people's lives AND a 10% discount on your next term pass.
Who's hungry for a routine?
It’s been 12 months since our
last team routine.If I can get six keen
dance couples/partners wanting to learn a routine then we will get cracking with a view
to teaching it in term 4.
My current two favourite songs
are Paloma Faith’s ‘Can’t Rely on You’ and ‘Take Me’.Song choice needs to be one you can stand
listening and practicing to for long periods.It needs hits and energy and conveys some passion.It should also be between 90 and say 120
beats per minute and these tick my box.
I’m looking forward to seeing
you all next week of course.Stay good!
