Let's Dance

NewsPosted by Anna 07 Oct, 2013 13:53:34
We are still looking for a dance assistant and dance teacher for some of our sessions, so if you are interested please do get in touch.

It's hard to believe that we are already in October AND the sun is still shining, bit of a bonus! We've had a fabulous start to the academic year with children signed up for the dance club at Onslow Infants, the launch of Blurred Edges and Moving Rainbows.

We've seen new and old faces come and put their dancing shoes on and learn some new skills. Some of the core team and Living Colour network have just come back from a Dance conference with the Christian Dance Fellowship of Britain (CDFB) in Midhurst. It was a fantastic day, lots learnt and lots of aching limbs, but all worth it!

There are only a few workshops left of 2013 (where has the year gone!) and it would be great to see you there. Full details will be out shortly, but for your diaries...

MONDAY 14th October - Moving Rainbows @ QE Park Centre, 3.40pm - 6.15pm, various ages.

FRIDAY 8th November - Final Living Colour SEED workshop of the year and Party! We've got a lovely studio at the University of Surrey thanks to one of our teachers Hannah Luke and there will also be live worship.

MONDAY 11th November - Moving Rainbows @ QE Park Centre, 3.40pm - 6.15pm, various ages.

TUESDAY 12th November - Blurred Edges @ Guildford Baptist Church

PLUS
