Latest Club News 11th December 2020

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Christmas is in the air, can you feel it? It’s been a hectic 2020 and as it comes to a close there is a definite sign of hope that things are improving on the horizon. We have certainly been abiding by our Council & Department of Health regulations to ensure we implement all the necessary safety measures in our wonderful centre, and since we’ve been so very ‘good’, I heard a rumour that Santa may come to visit all our activities in our last week before the Xmas break up so look out for that jolly man in red in the coming week ?

Live Music to accompany Dancers

Patti & Tony Gilbert

Yes, you heard it, the amazing professional musical duo Patti & Tony Gilbert are offering our club exclusive live music sessions for our New Vogue Sequence Dancing twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays and Saturdays, alternating weeks with Brian & Mary (Thursdays) & Colin & Elizabeth (Saturdays). The dynamic couple will already commence during Christmas week so don on your best dance outfits and come and celebrate our end of year in style.

Patti will be there Thursday 17th December for the 9am session and Tony Gilbert Sound on Saturday 19th December 6.30pm session for an extra special Festive Gala Dance Night with After 5/ Cocktail Dress code. Bookings essential for these sessions as their popularity will definitely challenge our venue capacity and we need to remain strict to remain Covid-Safe.

Call Dianne on 0417 389 650 to book into those sessions.

The wonderful Carol’s New Vogue Tuesdays & Fridays remain unchanged and will also celebrate with themed sessions ‘Colours of Xmas’ in both her dance evenings Tuesday 15th & Friday 18th December to end the year on a festive note.

Volunteers Xmas Lunch

We had a wonderful get together at the Greenmount Surf Club Monday 7th December to thank our volunteers for their generosity of spirit and time at our centre. To those who couldn’t be there or those we didn’t get around to thanking personally – a HUGE THANK YOU to you all for your contribution to making our centre thrive again. We really appreciate you and thank you from our bottomless hearts! Unfortunately, we forgot to take a photo to capture the happy moment!

Centre Coordinators Christina & Lu with City of Gold Coast Division 14 Councillor Gail O’Neill

We look forward to sharing more Christmas cheer with you all in our last week together before we close ?

Warmest regards
Christina & Lu
