What’s been happening….

Finally have the web site up and running again after a long hiatus….  but we’ve been dancing more than ever.

We now have taken on 3 more dance styles which along with R’n’R and Freestyle, form the basis for the Rock’n’Roll Dance genre to be officially recognised as a dance style like Ballroom, Latin and Nu Vogue through the Federal Association Teachers Of Dance (FATD).

The Federal Association of Teachers of Dancing is the longest established dance teacher association in the Southern Hemisphere being established in Sydney in 1931 and is a foundation member body of the Australian Dancing Board.

We are proud to be members of this organisation.

Since our last update, The triples team has gone on to winning the Open Triples Championships in South Australia, New South Wales and twice in Tasmania. So along with South Eastern Championships and Coolie we have been undefeated in 5 states of Australia.  We retired the triples in 2016.

This was due in part of the time constraints of us taking on the new dance styles of Lindy Hop, Rockabilly, Harlem and building of our new dance studio.

The new studio will be a major part of our dance when we complete our accreditation which we are now working hard towards.

In February 2018 we will have our first ever workshop. It’s going to be on Intermediate R’n’R and Intro to Lindy Hop. Our guest Instructor for the Lindy Hop will be Jan O’Shea, Head of the R’n’R faculty for FATD and the Late Great Frankie Manning Australian dance partner.

Look for more being posted here soon….

Here’s a little of what’s been happening….
