Bal&Blues social and workshops ON HOLD

Our regular balboa and blues social happens the fourth Sunday of every month – and there’s chocolate!

Social to be at the Riverside Market She Chocolaterie 7- 9 pm, free entry but do help us support the cafe. 
Classes beforehand at St Michael’s – this month on the 27th June there is:
4- 5 pm  Intermediate Blues
5-6 pm Beginner Balboa 
$10 for one or both classes

Other events:

This happens every Thursday night from 6-8 pm on the third floor at Riverside Markets – there’s not much space for dancing up there, but the floor below where the seating area is gets good sounds, plus is free entry and is above all the scrummy food places at the market. If there are a few dancers there then it’s possible to move a table to create some dance space. It’s always great jazz and a chance to support our local musos, but some weeks will be better than others for danceability so keep an eye on our facebook page where we will try share any particular highlights.
The lineup is here.

Rebels Christmas Party at the Band Rotunda by the Margaret Mahy playground! Free attendance – vaccine passes, tracer app and masks required please. Back up venue of St Michael’s School Hall in the event of inclement weather.
