With a number of West Coast Swing and Ceroc Modern Jive dance events coming up over the next two months many of us need a decent venue to practice in. This Tuesday will be putting on some moderately fast West Coast Swing/medium speed Modern Jive Music from 8pm to give everyone an opportunity to practice for upcoming performances or to just freestyle for the fun of it.
We’ll be reviewing the Give Me Everything routine beforehand at 7.15pm.
If you’re still thinking of going to the NZ Open,
tickets are 50% off for South Islanders ($100 instead of $200) for the full event pass. There will be five US Pros there, including the legendary Michael Kielbasa!
There is also an international discount for Best of the Best
