There is a bit in this update:
Please join me in welcoming Kim - https://www.destinedance.com.au/kim.html - to the team. Kim has had quite a diverse dance career starting in 1981. This includes ballroom and other styles that gives her great insights she is excited to share with everyone.
New contact details
The studio now has a new phone number - 8774 9614. This is because of a shift to a more flexible phone system.
Now that COVID seems to be restricting what we do less, awards nights will be back. This is still being finalised, but start thinking about what you want to work on next to progress your ability. There is nothing like an awards night to hone that focus.
You might have seen this on the Facebook page or Instagram. On the 20th there is a bubblegum rock show at Carnegie Hall. This is a great chance to use your Lindy Hop, Jive, R'n'R and blues dance skills as they were intended. Get back to me if you would like to come along so I can add you to the Destine Dance table.
A slight change to the business model
Thanks to everyone who has helped our wedding couples by watching them do their last rehearsal with us. This helps the couple get used to performing for an audience so the actual event is not as daunting.
And it seems to have paid off. The popularity of the wedding dance lessons at Destine Dance are such that we are 3rd on the first page when you type "wedding dance lessons in Melbourne" into Google.
For that reason we will be expanding our wedding dance lesson offering to other areas around Melbourne. If you ever hear of someone getting married, then please let them know about us.
New video in the members' area
The bronze Lindy Hop routine is now up on the members area. Contact your private lesson teacher to get the password - it has changed.
