Welcome back, dancers! The new semester is here and we hope you’re as excited as we are for the good times we have ahead. We’re very excited to announce our coaches for the 2015-2016 school year: Roberta is back for standard and smooth, and we’ll be welcoming Joanna as our new Latin coach!
Roberta’s classes will start at 4pm, with smooth from 4-5 and standard from 5-6. Joanna’s Latin class will be from 6-7, and from 7-8 the room will be open for workshops and open practice.
Stay tuned for information about our upcoming recruitment / party / mixer day, Dancing With the Spartans, which will take place this Friday, 8/28. See you all there!!
We’re kicking off our social dance classes with a FREE hustle lesson! Drop by the aerobics room in the gym (Sports Club) at 8:15 on Thursday, February 12 for a fun lesson on one of the most versatile dances out there — nightclub hustle. Bring your valentine! Bring your friends! Bring your parents! Bring everybody!
(Note: if said friends / valentines / parents are not SJSU students, they’ll have to pay $5 to get into the gym, making the lesson free-ish instead of free. Sorry; that part’s out of our control).
Now that the Invitational is over, we’re starting back up with our social dance classes! Classes will be held from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm every Tuesday in the SJSU multi-purpose room (downstairs in the gym / Sport Club). Classes are only $5 and no partner or experience is necessary! Drop by some time and learn a new dance! Classes will also count for homework credit for anyone enrolled in an SJSU dance class.
(Please note that while we do not restrict these classes to SJSU students, any guests will have to pay an additional $5 to be able to access the gym)
Thank you to everyone who came to the first annual Spartan Invitational Ball — you all helped make yesterday a fantastic day for everybody! The judges were fabulous, our pros were phenomenal, and the entire day was full of great dancing. We hope you had as much fun as we did, and we can’t wait to have everyone back next year!
