Now everyone’s settled in to the new year, we hope you’re ready for all the new things going on! LUBDS has a lot planned for this week, so to make things easier, here’s a timetable of Week 2. To see this in the month’s calendar, just go to our Events page here.
Monday: Salsa Workshop
The first of our new workshops with Salsa teacher Janik Waite. This workshop will take place in the Playroom, Great Hall Complex, at 8pm and will cost you £3 for an hour’s tuition and an hour’s social dancing and practice afterwards.
Tuesday: Beginner to Novice Lessons with Andrew
After his astonishing debut last week on Tuesday where over 100 people turned up for a single class, Andrew will be returning for his regular slot from 7-10pm on Tuesday. The first hour will be a faster-paced Beginner’s class, and the subsequent two hours moving up to Novice level to try and find the right level for everyone. This session will be in County South Lecture Theatre, and cost you £4 for the night’s teaching (up to 3 hours).
Wednesday: Fresher’s Icebreaker Bar Crawl
Organised by our wonderful Social Secretaries Hannah and Theo (for the exec profiles, click here!), the bar crawl on Wednesday will be a casual wander up campus from Grad bar at 8pm through Grizedale, Fylde and County to get to know each other! You can stay for as long or as little as you like, but be sure to come and say hello!
Thursday: Beginners’ Lessons with Janet
After a successful first lesson on Thursday where our brand new Beginners learnt some Cha Cha and Waltz, Janet will be back for her regular slot on Thursday from 7-9pm. These lessons are aimed at Beginners, so if you’ve never danced a step, or have some limited experience, or just need a confidence boost, come along to have a go! This session will be County South Lecture Theatre and cost you £4 for two hours tuition.
Friday: Dance free!
After all that, you might be pleased to know that we don’t have anything planned for Friday – phew! A chance to rest your weary feet!
Saturday and Sunday: Strictly Come Dancing & Results Show
To be honest, it wouldn’t be a summary of the ballroom-related week if I didn’t mention Strictly! Make sure you tune in so you have lots to gossip to your new dancing friends about 🙂
Well, that’s all for this week! I (Connie; Media&Comms Officer) hope to see lots of you at all these different and brilliant events! Over and out 🙂 xx
