In memoriam
It has been a very sad week when we learned the passing of Jenny Costenoble. Jenny was a regular at Plumpton Neighbourhood Centre and I had the pleasure to get to know her through the RocknRoll Class and this year through the Swing Class. Always smiling and a genuinely, beautiful lady. She loved her dancing and dance family and introduced us to some wonderful people. Our condolences to the family and Alex. Her smile and light will definitely be missed. Also a special Thank you to those who came along to the Shim Sham last Thursday. These photos were taken at our recent Prom Night. RIP

What’s New??
We have been approached by Club Toukley to teach in their auditorium on a Tuesday night and we have taken up their offer.

The Club has a history with RocknRoll dancing and we look forward to working in with them to bring dancing back to this great venue.

We will be bringing back the childrens classes at 6.15pm and continue with the same schedule RocknRoll/Rockabilly 7pm and Swing at 8pm. We do hope you support the move as it is a very rare occasion that a club approaches a dance school.
