December News

We would like to open this Newsletter with a welcome to all New Students and a thank you to all Blue Suede Shoes members who have been part of the Studio this year.

Settle back and enjoy a good read with this months Newsletter and upcoming events.
Please note we will have a Christmas Newsletter out in Week 3 of December with all the resume dates for 2015.

This time of year we like to Reflect on the Year that has been.  Our Highlights this year was Frankie Manning’s 100th Birthday in New York, The Wartime in July Salvation Army Event, Chromefest Sockhop and the success of the WSDC NSW State Titles.  We will continue to bring these events to you next year and will also keep our syllabus content fresh and up to date with a view of what is current.

Only 2 weeks remaining to purchase your ticket. We have 30 tickets available.

The theme this year is Pyjama theme. We have got clearance from the club to enter the foyer in your Pjs provided you do stay in the auditorium.  For those who do not wish to dress in theme please come along in Christmas Colours.

At this year’s Christmas Party we have introduced 2 New Awards along with our annual Best Couple Award and Student of the Year Award. We will have a rookie award for the New Kid on the Block and a Long Term Award for students who have been with Blue Suede Shoes Dance School for 10 years.

We appreciate everyone’s hectic lifestyle and situations do come up at the last minute.  We do however ask if you can possibly advice us of your absence from classes.  Some of our venues require our staff to travel a fair distance up to one and half hours.  This will enable us to contact others in the class and reschedule any classes effected by absentees.

The effect you have on others is the best currency there is. NO amount of money could buy that, it comes from the heart.   Jim Carey
