Le Vibe - 28th November 2008
Quote of the week:
"Why do I dance?.....
Why do I breathe?"
We are now full-on into choreographing our new routines for 2009.
There will be two routines on offer... a Mentor Routine where our newer dancers partner up with more experienced dancers as well as an Intermediate/Advanced (I/A) routine jam packed with new move, styling and new technique! Both routines will start mid February 2009.
Thanks to everyone who attended the last Dance Party.
Whilst it was a bit slow to start, the crowd really picked up and we had a great night. A few people asked me where the crew from the Coast were. The Coast guys and girls usually join us for a great night of freestyle dance but this time round they had birthday parties for two of thier crew. Happy 21st Coby! Happy 40th Rossco!
Monday Night... Bring-a-Friend and save $ again!
Last week's 'Bring-a-Friend' night worked so well we are doing it again next Monday.
Last Monday had over 50 people there so great atmosphere and lots of new people to meet and dance with.
We know that word of mouth is the best form of advertising.
You telling your friends, collegues etc is way better than any paid advertising we could do.
All you have to do is bring at least one "first timer" friend and you and your first timer friends will all get in free. And, if you have already purchased a Monthly Pass for November, we will give you a free "thank you pass" that will entitle you to one free night or $14 off your December Monthly Pass as a thank you for bringing some friends along to try a class.
See you at St.Joachim's School Hall in Crown St at Holland Park each Monday night.
Guest Teachers - Mondays
Spread the word...
Brisbane's very own John Kennedy and Sharon Mundey will be sharing some of their winning moves with you on Monday night (1st Dec). John & Sharon won 3rd place Masters (highest level) at the last Australasian Open Modern Jive Championships. John has been dancing with Le Step since he was about 14 and Sharon has also been with us for lots of years. This will be your last opportunity to learn from John before he head off at Christmas to live in Dubai.
The following week, Julia Nutter and Jack Fifoot will be teaching for you. They recently formed a dance partnership and competed in their first ever competition together. We always knew they were talented dancers but the competition proved it when they placed second in the Advanced Freestyle category. Furthermore, the team that Julia trained and help me (Mick) choreo the routine for (Like This Like That), won 1st place in the Team Challenge section. This section was judged by no less than 12 of Australia's leading dancers - so it's a real testament to Julia's dance skills and her ability to train teams for competition. Julia and Jack will be teaching you some of their winning combos and styling on Monday 8th at holland Park.
The following week, Lee Rays and Helen Leury wil be teaching for you at Holland Park. Lee and Helen recently taught a class at Chermside which was very well received by all who attended. Lee's relaxed and fun teaching style is a treat.
Lee and Helen are two very stylish dancers who are regularly seen on a Wednesday night at West End. Lee originally learnt to dance on the Gold Coast and then moved to the UK where he taught for the largest Modern Jive company in the world. Lee and his very stylish partner Helen (from London) are now back living in Australia and are keen to share some moves and style with you.
So, there's lots of new people and lots of variety happening on Mondays!

Are you new to Le Step?
We know that the best dancers are those who get a really good understanding of the basics and the base moves.
Our advice is; Don't be in a rush to move into the Intermediate Class.
You're much better off spending a few more weeks making sure you've covered lots of the base moves and know them well.
Typically the boys require a few more sessions than their counterparts because there is a lot to think about when leading correctly and linking moves.
Our comprehensive curriculum means there is plenty of repetition of moves without getting boring. In fact, if you did every Beginner class available you would have regularly covered 23 moves in detail plus another 23 in less detail. That will give you a whopping total of 46 moves.
So, stick to the Beginner and Re-Cap classes for a few extra weeks and become a sensational dancer with lot's of moves!
Doors open at 7:15pm
Just a reminder that doors open at all venues at 7:15pm. Before this time the doors at some venues are locked whilst we are running private classes, filming routines or generally getting staff and crew prepared for the night ahead.
However, we encourage you to be there by at least twenty or twenty-five past seven so that we can start the class for everyone at 7:30pm sharp.
Boys, the girls are generally much better at this so please help out in this regard if you can. It really helps when we can start the class on time and with relatively close to equal ratio of girls and boys. Thanks!
Please do your best to be there on time as it really helps all our new people to have experienced people there from the start.
