Sorry, we ARE closed

Closed – Friday The 12th Of November 2010

The Hybrid Kinetic Dance Group will be on hiatus this Friday the 12th of November 2010, however if you are still keen to do some salsa dancing we recommend that you check out Rumba Latino Nights at the Talbot Hotel 104 Gouger Street city.

Ok, now that I have your attention it’s time for a quick Q&A session… I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately that I think merrit some clarification.

1. What Is The New Pricing Structure?

Here is the new fee structure:

  • Hip Hop classes $5 per lesson ($10 for both lessons).
  • Salsa classes $3 for one or both lessons.

I sent out an email last week stating that salsa classes are now $5 each which was incorrect, the new price only applies to Hip Hop classes.

2. What Other Salsa Classes And Activities Are Available In Adelaide?

There is quite a thriving community of Salsa dancers here in Adelaide.

Some of the major companies include:

  • Latin Dance Nation.
  • Latino Grooves.
  • Salsa Connection.
  • La Bomba.
  • Fame Dance Studios.

Just to name a few…

There is usually something on every night of the week so if you do a Google or FaceBook search for those companies I’m sure that you will find something!

3. Why Is Loc So Awesome?

Just coz, I was born that way, it’s undefinable… can’t be explained, sorry.

Some Changes To The Curriculum, Class Times And Prices

Ok… sooo… I have some good news and some bad news for you…

Firstly the good news – Madison Kuerschner has kindly agreed to stick around on a more permanent basis to teach hip hop, this is awesome especially for those of you who love hip hop dancing.

As a result we are now making some minor changes to the class times:

Hip hop classes will begin from 7pm:

  • 7pm beginner / intermediate.
  • 8pm intermediate / advanced.

Salsa classes will begin from 9pm:

  • 9pm beginners.
  • 10pm intermediate.

And now for the bad news…

Which is that we have had to increase prices, so now classes will be:

  • $5 per lesson for hip hop ($10 for 2 lessons).
  • $3 for salsa ($3 in total even if you do both lessons).

The reason for the increase is essentially to cover costs as well as to put a little bit more into promotion, since the Adelaide dance scene is quite competitive it’s necessary for us to spend a little bit more to improve services and to promote the classes.

But this is still good news…

Because this means that we will have a greater diversity of students meaning more people for you to dance and socialise with.

Don’t worry, we are still a not-for-profit organisation so any surplus money will simply go back into organising special events such as the Halloween party we had last week.

The other good news is that classes are still way lower than most dance schools charge, the average cost of classes is usually between $12-$15, so you are still getting the same quality instruction for less than half the price and now you also have a greater selection too… with hip hop and salsa classes on offer!

Alrighty, the changes take effect as of this week so be sure to spread the word and let everyone know.

Cheers

Friday Night Salsa – Where Is It And What Time Does It Start?

Friday Night Salsa – Where Is It And What Time Does It Start?

Hello,

This is Loc, I got a question from one of the members of the Adelaide Dance FaceBook page recently so I thought I’d take a few minutes to clarify.

Debbie writes “Hi are there salsa classes on Friday the 15th of October? Where and what time for beginners? Thanks Debbie.”

Ok, so, to answer your question Debbie, yes, there will be a Salsa class on Friday the 15th of October and it will be at the North Adelaide Community Centre 176 Tynte Street (behind the North Adelaide Library) from approximately 9.30pm.

Currently we have a guest instructor Madison Kuerschner who is teaching Hip Hop classes from 8.30pm and this will be on every Friday for the month of October which is why Salsa classes have been pushed back a bit.

You can learn more by checking out our website www.adelaidedance.com

If you have any more questions, comments or suggestions feel free to post them on our website or FaceBook page, you can find our FaceBook page at www.facebook.com/adelaidedance

That’s it for now and thanks for listening!
