NOVEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER

Hi guys

Welcome to the November edition of our Newsletter.  There’s some important updates in it, so make sure you have a read.  There’s been a change of dates for our next course, so check out details under the heading of “Rock n Roll Classes”.   

Now read on for all that’s happening at Footloose!

GENERAL NEWS

IMPORTANT :   Unfortunately we are unable to use the Fraternity Club on Monday 12th November, so there will be  NO CLASSES – MONDAY 12TH NOVEMBER

MORE IMPORTANT:  The commencement dates for our last course for the year have changed from those published in our October newsletter.  Make sure you check out the ROCK N ROLL CLASS information below. 

Christmas Party tickets are almost sold out – we’ve already sold over 210!  There are only around  40 tickets left, so get in quick.  All details can be found under “What’s On”.

We are heading off for a week teaching on a Rock n Roll music cruise, and there are over 40 from Footloose going, so it should be a fabulous holiday!   Don’t forget – if you want to join us on our next group holiday, bookings are still available for our huge holiday to Las Vegas, Miami, Hawaii and an Eastern Caribbean cruise in April next year – but you need to be quick.  Details are under the “Holidays” heading.

 LEARN SWING LINDY HOP DVD’S

Our new Learn Swing Lindy Hop Dance DVD’s are almost completed and will be ready around the 21st November, so we are offering you a pre-release special price to celebrate!   The normal price for the set of four is $130, but if you order and pay for them before 16TH NOVEMBER, you will only pay $115 (plus postage if applicable)!   Order them at classes, or email us at info@footlooserockers.com.au for details.

DANCE SHOE STALL COMING TO THE GONG!

We have great news for those of you who need DANCE SHOES or just want another pair!  We will be having a dance shoe stall at our Christmas Party at the Frat Club on 1st December.  The company is called LET’S DANCE SHOES from Port Macquarie, and this is the first time they will be in Wollongong!  They carry a huge range of dance shoes in both Men’s and Ladies styles.  Their shoes are great and so comfortable that I wear them myself.  So bring your wallet or credit card with you.  They will have a full range of styles and colours to suit everyone!

 FOOTLOOSE GIFT VOUCHERS

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift, why not buy that special someone a Footloose Gift Voucher.  The voucher is valid for six months from date of issue, and the normal price is $50 for a five week course.   However as a special Christmas promotion, you can purchase them for just $40 each, and that will give the recipient a five week course in either Rock n Roll or Swing Lindy in 2019.   See us at classes to arrange them or email info@footlooserockers.com.au

FOOTLOOSE SOCIAL DANCE

We had our last social dance of the year in October, and unfortunately we still didn’t cover costs (we put $110 out of our own pocket towards the cost – again!), so we are definitely not doing them in the New Year.    This one was a trial to see if we could justify putting them on, but numbers just don’t warrant them in future.

CLASS INFORMATION

ROCK N ROLL CLASSES

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE CHANGES TO THE DATES FOR THE LAST COURSE for the year!!!!    Please disregard information in our October newsletter.  Commencement dates for the next 5 week courses are:

  • MONDAY 5th NOVEMBER – The Fraternity Club (Fairy Meadow), and

  • THURSDAY 8th NOVEMBER – Pt Kembla Collegians Leagues Club

 Class times are:  6.30 – Beginners 1;  7.30 – Beginners 2A;  8.30 – Intermediate F

IMPORTANT!!  

There will be NO LESSONS ON MONDAY 12TH NOVEMBER – the only class for that week will be held at Port Kembla Collegians Club on Thursday 15th Nov, so if you normally attend classes at the Frat Club, you will have to go to Port Kembla for that one week. 

All other Rock n Roll classes will go ahead as normal.

CHRISTMAS SPECIAL!!  – The five week Beginners 1 course is JUST $25 FOR THE 5 WEEKS!

DANCE WORKSHOPS

As the five week course finishes on 3rd December, there will be two weeks left until Christmas, so we have decided to run some workshops in different styles.

The dates and locations for the workshops are:

Monday 10th December – The Fraternity Club

Thursday 13th December – Pt Kembla Collegians

Monday 17th December – Pt Kembla Collegians (we are unable to use the Frat on this night)

Thursday 20th December – Pt Kembla Collegians

Each workshop will run for 2 hours where we teach a certain style, giving you a variety of moves to do, and will fast track your ability to be able to dance these styles. 

The styles we will be teaching at these workshops will be announced soon, but they will probably be Step Rock (Ceroc), Waltz, Slow Rhythm OR Line Dances, – so if you have a style that you’d be interested in doing, please let us know.  There are survey forms on the desk at classes, or you can email and let us know your preference.

A full itinerary of classes, times and all details will be advised soon, but in the meantime, keep the dates free.

SWING LINDY HOP DANCE CLASSES

Please note there will be no Swing Lindy class on WEDNESDAY 7TH NOVEMBER.  The normal Swing class will recommence on 14th November, which will be the last week of the current course.

WHAT’S ON!!

BAREFOOT LAWN BOWLS DAY

Unfortunately we had to cancel our Lawn Bowls day due to bad weather.  However we will be rescheduling this in the New Year.    

FOOTLOOSE CHRISTMAS PARTY

We’ve now sold over 210 tickets for our Christmas Dance Party on 1st December, so this means there are only around 40 tickets left – so you need to get in quickly if you want to come!

The event is being held at the Fraternity Club, and the band is the fantastic MIDNIGHT DRIFTERS.  Tickets are $55 and include a 2 course dinner.  The theme this year is WILD WEST HOEDOWN, so get out your check shirts, Stetson hats, Annie Oakley outfits, Cowboy or Indian outfits and come along and join us for a great fun night!  Tables are for 10 people, so why not get a table together and give us your list of names and we’ll reserve a table for you.  If you don’t have others to sit with, we’ll seat you with others from your class.

For those of you who have left deposits on your tickets, they MUST BE PAID FOR IN FULL BY 21st NOVEMBER.  Also, don’t forget to let us know if you have an special dietary requirements for your meal.  Please note there will be NO TICKET SALES on the night.

GROUP ROCK N ROLL HOLIDAYS

LAS VEGAS, MIAMI, CARIBBEAN CRUISE, HAWAII – 2019

Still thinking of joining us on our holiday in April 2019?  We already have 36 booked!  Don’t leave it too late to make up your mind.  I have people asking “when do I need to book by”.  There’s no real answer to that because once the flights or the cruise are booked out, then it will be too late.   So book now so you don’t miss out!

The holiday consists of 3 nights in Miami, a 10 night Eastern Caribbean cruise, then a week in Las Vegas for the Viva Las Vegas Rock n Roll festival and the option of stopping in Hawaii on the way home!   Ask for a flyer at the desk at classes, or we can email it to you. 

If you have any queries or would like to book call Rachael or Darryl at the Rock n Roll Travel Club on 1800 654 899.   We’d love you to join us on what promises to be a fantastic holiday!  Everyone is welcome to join us on our holidays!  The idea is for a group of people with like-minded interests traveling together and enjoying other fun-loving people’s company!
