Introducing Kristal Forestieri who is no stranger to Blue Suede Shoes Dance School. Kristal came to us at the age of 11 to our Blacktown Studio and was there from the
beginning when Frankie Manning visited Australia. Kristal’s strengths lie in the competition and performance area. Having assisted in teaching with me personally in Sydney I am thrilled to have her part of our team. Kristal has won many dance championships and is strong in all styles Lindy Hop, Slow Swing, RocknRoll and Rockabilly. Krystal is literally a breath of fresh air and has a wonderful disposition and warmth that I’m confident everyone will fall in love with as we all have.

Secondly welcoming Ben Row to our team. Ben has been a familiar face at Blue Suede Shoes over the last 2 years in our Newcastle and Central Coast area. Right from the word go Ben has been an ambassador for our dance studio, infact he is a walking advertisement. He is passionate and enthusiastic and willing to learn and help whenever the occasion
arises. His strength is Rockabilly and RocknRoll and he has a love for Swing dancing which in the last 12 months has become a big part of his curriculum. Ben has a terrific attitude to life and is friendly and welcoming to all our students. An asset to our team.

Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming response we exceed our limit and everyones co-operation with the upfront payment has made registrations efficient and easy for Sunday.  Just pop in 11.45am bring your shoes, hand towel, deodorant, etc.
There is a water cooler at the hall, off street car parking available.

The secret is out! This year there has been an elephant in the room at Mayfield West Bowling Club with the positioning of the billiard table and we have been collaborating with the manager at Gallipoli Legions club for the last 2 months to move our classes in May to the upstairs lounge area for intermediate and downstairs area for beginners. It is situated in the heart of the vibrant, bustling suburb of Hamilton next door to the station only 6km away from Mayfield West Bowlo. The club supports bands and dancers and has weekly entertainment. We would recommend to join the club and support their upcoming gigs as it is a struggle to find new venues and management that support our sport.
5/3 Beaumont Street Hamilton
Please spread the word classes will move to the Legions Club from Monday 9 May.
