Coasties Newsletter - 10 November 2008
I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.
Monday nights @ COOLANGATTA with Allan, Emma & Kent!
Our Monday night format is Beginner Class, Freestyle, Intro-Mediate Class followed by more Freestyle! If you're keen to start progressing to the next level but you're worried about the degree of difficulty, come and try a Monday night class at Cooly. Our second class at this venue is like a "bridging" class to help you take the next step up from beginners.
This week Kent is taking the class with Vicky for Beginner and then Kat for Intro-mediate. This venue is popular with some of our most dedicated dancers so there's plenty of good dancers to mix it up with....if you haven't tried it you, car pool with your friends and head to Cooly for a boogie tonight.
Tuesday nights @ ARUNDEL with Allan!
This Tuesday night, Al will be back on stage teaching at Arundel. Laura will join him for the beginner class the Holly will join him for the intermediate class while Laura teaches re-cap wtih Stephen. This Tuesday Kat will teach intro-mediate with Atul so there's many options to choose from.
Tuesday numbers are holding steady with heaps of good dancers to choose from. Come along and join the friendly crowd on a Tuesday.
REMINDER: We now offer an Intro-Mediate Class every Tuesday night at 9pm. This means something for everyone with 3 classes to choose from based on your level of dancing
Wednesday nights @ SOUTHPORT with Emma!
Emma will be joined on stage this week by Pete for both the beginner and intermediate classes. For the second round of classes at 9pm, Justin and Ciara will take the re-cap class and Janelle and Dean will take the intro-mediate class.
Numbers are good and the atmosphere on Wednesday's is fun. With the year starting to wind down, make sure you get your fill of dancing in before the Xmas break. Wednesday nights are full of laughs and it's a friendly night out of dancing.
REMINDER: the Intro-Mediate Class is now being offered at HQ as well, so at 9pm, there will be 3 classes to choose from based on your level of dancing - something for everyone.

See you Friday night for some dancing fun!
We had a great turnout for the weekend of workshops held here on the Gold Coast on Saturday 8th November with 75 people in attendance!
The beginners were excited by the technique they can apply to what they've already learnt and are paving the way for the new breed of dancer coming onto the scene.
The intermediate/advanced dancers are loaded up with things to work on to ensure they become some of the best dancers in the country. The Gold Coast dancers coming out of Le Step are being recognised as some of the most versatile dancers on the national scene and it's a testament to each and everyone of you who love your chosen sport and seek to excel.
The feedback we receive about the overall standard here at Le Step on the Coast is extremely good and we look forward to sharing as much knowledge of the dance as we can with you.
For those who attended the dance party after the workshops, thank you for your support. It was a long day but the party was fun and the dancing was great.
Keep your eyes and ears open for the next lot of workshops in the New Year....

If you've noticed the boys at Le Step a looking a little shaggy and unshaven of late, give them a pat on the back coz it's not coz they are just being scruffy,....it's in support of MOVEMBER - a very worthy cause to raise awareness on mens health!

These guys got together and formed a team that have a raised a combined figure of $545 for the cause - and it's only week 2.
