March Magic

Firstly what a Fab February as we say So Long to Summer!
I would like to welcome all our new students who have begun with us this year.  I love the enthusiasm and vibe you bring to the floor each week.  Our theme nights were well received and we have had requests for more so keep your eyes peeled for the next one in your area.

Fiery Fundraiser Recap
Earlier this year we embarked on a Fundraiser to help our Firey’s and what a HUGE
success.  We are proud to announce we raised $6636.05 from an enthusiastic loyal giving crowd of 105 people.   More than half were from Sydney and I do applaud your support.  We had a wonderful team of volunteers who put their hands up to help and of course our music team in DJ Gav Bean and Toni & the Rhythm Cats who gave up of their time to provide the entertainment.  Thank you!

Signing off

So many KODAK moments in 2019…
This is it! our last newsletter for the year and decade!

Thank you for visiting anyone of our studio locations this year and making memories with our team.  We are truly blessed and thankful to the wonderful students and staff that make our days brighter and better. It really is a joy and pleasure to get on the dance floor with a  great bunch of people.

Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love everything about it -from the Christmas spirit, the family time, the food and the holidays.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year & New Decade in 2020!!

In the meantime we have a brief up to the minute newsletter with all the information you need for January and resume dates for all our venues.  I am very mindful of how time poor everyone is this time of year so I’m keeping it short and sweet.

My Message: Remember to take time out for you… breathe and relax.  Do something for yourself.  Yes be selfish, take some R&R time, read a book, visit a friend, turn off social
media, go for a walk, start a holiday saving account and don’t dip into it until you reach your goal, try something new -a change is as good as a holiday.  Go through that wardrobe and get rid of those unwanted, unworn clothes. Best things in life are FREE.. Give of your time and take time to Listen and always send someone a SMILE.  Let’s not forget those doing it tough through our worst Bushfire Season ever and the bravery of our firefighters.

Reflecting on 2019 What were your top 3 memories?
Here are mine
