Our off-set printers had a huge backlog of printing that has unexpectedly delayed us in getting some of our danceEscape advertising out to you.
We're a bit peeved - but you win! To be fair to everyone we have extended our early-bird specials for a few days.
But, get in now or miss out on the special offer!
The fliers will be in the mail today so if you don't see them at your local venue (including interstate venues) next week please ask the director of your company for one or just visit the online pages directly.
Early-Bird specials extended for a few days only!
I was so happy to receive this email that I thought I would share it with you...
Quote: "I had an awesome time at the dance workshop on Sunday with Lee and Helen. I learnt a great deal and believe that it will help my dancing. It was well worth 2 hours of my time!!! It was good to see some more experienced dancers there too such as R and D (from the Crew) as it goes to show they too are keen to find out how they can improve their dancing. In promoting the workshops I think this is a really good selling point. .... I think there are lots of people that would get a lot out of the workshops."
The workshops that will assist all of our Intermediate and Advanced dancers. The workshops are about your general freestyle dancing - and for those of you who are interested in competing later in the year, there will be additional stuff to assist you in your preparation. See below for more info.
This weekend is Musicality with Mick & Helen.
It will include some basics as well as some stuff to challege you too.
Numbers are slowly on the increase but we've had extra guys the last few weeks. Girls, bring some friends and come join us at Chermside.
The new floor at West End is fantastic. Over 120 there this week. Great atmosphere!
A reminder that we will be open on Ekka Wednesday in August.
I'll be teaching there tonight but next week you get Julia. It's always great to hear things from another perspetive and Julia has heaps of general dance and competition experience.

EARLY-BIRD SPECIAL FINISHES SOON.
Yes - to be fair, the early-bird special has been extended but only for a few days.
See you at class,
Dance all you want for $18 per week.
We've had more people take up this offer recently. If you'd like more information about our offer of $18 per week for unlimited regular weekly classes please ask our door staff.
This offer is for those who like the idea of cheaper classes combined with the convenience of a continual direct debit payment system. There are a few set-up things for us to take care of with the third party provider, so to get things happening for you it's a minimum 12 weeks contract which, subject to some basic conditions, you can then stop at any time.
We have phased in this payment option over the past few months and we're now ready to get others on board. So, if this plan suits you please ask our door staff for more information.
Volunteers for our danceChamps?
It's that time of year when we are looking for volunteers to help run our danceChamps in September.
It would be great if we could get enough non-competing volunteers to help but there are jobs for lots of people to make the event run smoothly.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping out on the day or in the lead-up to our biggest event.
'Enhance your Dance' - Workshop series this Sunday
Rather than offer another standard routine, we wanted to give you something different but something that will really assist your dancing no matter who you are or how long you've been dancing.
One of the key benefits of a routine is that you do some of the same stuff over and over which helps it become second nature. With that in mind, we have a series of workshops that will encourage you to go over the stuff you learn each week and enable you to enhance your dance by building on from one workshop to another.
We have also asked a few additional teachers to help so that you get to hear things from a different point of view as we draw on a vast variety of experiences.
You do not have to do all workshops but we have designed them so that most of them build on the techniques and skills each week.
Pricing: $30ea or all 6 for $130.
A two hour workshop is usually $30pp.
However, we understand many of you are on a budget, so we have priced this series of six workshops the same as what you would pay for a routine - $130.
Should you decide to do only some of the workshop you also have the option to pay for them individually at $30ea.
Time: 5:30 till 7:30pm
Venue: St.Joachim's Hall - Crown St Holland Park.
Chermside - bring a friend FREE night - again this Tuesday!
Girls - last week we had plenty of extra boys.
Are you from the Northside?
Do you have friends who are from the Northside?
Please tell them about our Northside venue at Chermside and our
free night for first-timers again on Tuesday.
If you have not been to Chermside before, maybe you'd like to check it out.
As a smaller venue it's easier to meet people, see what's going on in the class and get a dance with some of our better dancers and crew members.
Lots of the crew and regulars also enjoy the meals that are available from 6:30pm.
It's also got a huge floor and plenty of parking at the back of the building.
BRING AS MANY FRIENDS AS YOU LIKE
& SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VENUE.
First-Timers will be admitted FREE and if you bring a first-timer YOU will be 1/2 price.

Fab new venue for 2010 danceChamps
Please click on the pic here to see a larger view of our fabulous new venue for our 2010 danceChamps.
This modern facility will have awesome atmosphere on the comp night.
Please be aware that the venue is a bit smaller than the venue we have used over the past few comps and there will only be 380 seats available. So, when ticket sales are announced you should get in straight away or miss out of a fabulous night of dance.
The new venue is only a few years old and is situated on the hill at Stuartholme Girls School in Birdwood Terrace Toowong (at the base of Mt.Cootha).
Before booking the venue, we have had a number of our best dancers visit the venue and they all gave it the tick of approval.
For team events, please be aware that the usable dance area is approximately 9m wide by 7m deep.
This is going to be another extraordinary danceChamps event!
Enjoy the dance floor!
From Mick, Rach and the Le Step Team
