Latest news 12th August 2016

Hello everyone!
It’s been pretty chilly in Adelaide lately (especially for those Pokémon hunters braving the weather!) but the best way to warm up is to get moving to some hot jazz! Check out our upcoming classes – including the famous Big Apple routine and a special workshop featuring international/interstate teachers: Hometown Heroes with Elle & Kenneth!
Our fearless leaders Luna and Jarryd are just about to welcome their brand new Lindy Hopper – stay tuned! – and Vedrana and I have officially taken over the helm until their return. We are especially excited about our upcoming Intermediate ‘Know Your Jazz Dancer’ course, as well as seeing our latest crew of beginner Lindy Hoppers celebrate their graduation at the Tuxedo Junction Jam on 25 August. Can’t wait!
See you on the floor,
Katey (and Vedrana)
