Next Gold Coast Routine
TO BE PERFORMED AT CLASS THIS WEEK - GET A SNEAK PREVIEW!!
Did you learn the last Coasties routine?
Do you want to learn a routine (or another routine)?
Do you want to increase your ability to link moves together?
Do you want to improve your styling?
If you answered 'yes' to any of those questions then make sure you sign up for the next Gold Coast Routine and NO - we're not doing the Superstar routine! After much discussion and deliberation it was decided that something new and fun would be more exciting.
Emma, Al and Kent have choreographed another fun routine jam packed with great moves for all dancers. You will need a partner for the routine so start finding one now. The routine starts in June and will be taught at Dance HQ on Sunday afternoons in 6 x 2 hour sessions. For those who are learning the routine, a DVD will be available for purchase to assist in learning and maintaining the routine. Traditionally, these will be ready by week 5 of the routine.
The routine will be ready in time to perform at the Soiree (see below) so for those interested in showing off what they've learnt, that's the ultimate goal.
Brochures are available at class now! The "James Dean Routine" will be a little more challenging than the last one but with a massive emphasis on having fun and dancing with musicality and style.
PS: with the Brisbane competition coming up in September, participants may be hand picked for a team entry....something to work toward - take up the challenge!

INTERMEDIATE "B" FREESTYLE
INTERMEDIATE "A" FREESTYLE
This was an exceptional result for the whole of Le Step, Brisbane and Gold Coast combined. The Ceroc & Modern Jive staff and organisers of the event were extremely professional and the competition ran to time with a great vibe filtering through to all dancers and spectators. A big thank you to Julie, Nicky and so many more for making our visit so much fun.
A big thankyou to all our own dancers who supported this event and were part of the Le Step team. You all worked very hard in preparation for the event and it paid off wonderfully. Each of you deserve much congratulations and respect. Good on you!
Now.......start getting ready for the Queensland comp in September!! :)
