Tuesday @ Arundel
This week Kat Ski will take to the stage with Allan as her demonstrator. Kat and her partner Rob recently placed 3rd at the highest level of competiton in Australia at a recent Sydney dance competition and has been fast gaining a good reputation as a teacher too. Come and check out Kat in action on Tuesday night.
The support crew will include Shelly and Dean who will teach the re-cap class and be there to dance with you all.
Tuesdays nights have been drawing good numbers so make sure you join Al and the crew at Arundel.
Wednesday @ Dance HQ - also routine practice night.
Another champion dancer to learn from is Emma (who placed 2nd at the highest level of competition at the recent Sydney dance competition). She's the regular Wednesday night teacher and will have Justin join her on stage for the Beginner class. Guys, he's someone to keep your eye on. Justin recently brought home a stack of trophies from the Sydney dance competition and is definately an up and coming dancer of the future.
For the Intermediate class, Isaac will join Emma on stage and he's yet another trophy holder from the Sydney dance competition. Isaac's known for his fun and cheeky attitude to dancing so they'll have something up their sleeves for you in this class.
Laura (another recent trophy winner and Isaac's dance partner) will be teaching the re-cap class so there's talent galore oozing from this venue.
Wednesday nights dance crowd know how to have fun so if you're looking for another dance night, come and join them at Dance HQ in Southport.

Dance Escape - Modern Jive Party Week - Sept 2008

3. Championship Weekend of activities
We have already had bookings from quite a few people. More than half of the best standard of accommodation is now full so get in fast if you want to get the best accommodation at the camp.

If you have registered, you have till the due dates to make payment at the early-bird rates. If you do not make payment by that date your booked room will be released to others who want that accommodation.
SAME SEX ACCOMMODATION - A reminder that part of the agreement with the Baptist Church who run the venue for our Dance Camp 2008 is to adhere to the Baptist Church rules by accommodating un-married males and females in separate rooms. Married/De-facto couples and family members of the opposite sex can be accommodated in the same room.
This is fully explained in the Dance Camp pages but given that some of you have asked to share rooms with 'friends' who are not of the same sex, we thought we should remind you of the rules set down by the owners of the camp. Where possible we have accommodated friends in adjoining rooms.
Please contact us personally if this is a problem for you.
