We host monthly socials for our dance class students. These are a great way to practice what you’ve learnt in class in a non-pressurised environment.
We normally teach two dances each month, but as we move further into the year it can become difficult to remember the dances you learnt at the beginning of the year. This is where attending the socials helps because you get to practice all the different dances.
We encourage our couples to practice the steps and dances they’ve learnt at home every week, but dancing at a social also allows you to practice moving around the floor, in the correct line of dance and learning to do so while the dance floor is occupied by other couples dancing.
We only open our socials up to our current and previous students and, in this way, we ensure that everyone attending the socials knows what it was like to be a beginner. This also means that everyone who attends our socials understands the Dancemore culture and spirit of our get-togethers.
Attending the socials is a great way to get to know the other people in your class. Where possible, we seat students from the same class together to encourage socialisation and also so that beginners feel that they have some friends in their corner.
Socials often have a theme – like “beach party” – to remind us all that it’s about having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously.
Most social events have a bring and share, community feel, where everyone at the table brings their own snacks and we have a cash bar available.
Some events are catered and feature live entertainment and demonstrations; such as our highly anticipated, annual “Dancing with the Dancemore Stars” event.
As a family-owned business, our emphasis is always on providing our students with wholesome, affordable, fun occasions for their enjoyment.
Troy and I started at Dancemore in June 2008. It has been the best 12 years ever. We absolutely love dancing and the quality time spent together as a couple. We have met the most awesome people and we’ve become great friends. Our socials and weekends away are the best! Lots of fun and good laughs. Ryan, Candy and Jose always go the extra mile to make their students happy and to accommodate everyone. Looking forward to many more years with our Dancemore family.
