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 at Fat Eddie’s on the terrace – 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.
