Evening Classes Term 4

Our Evening Classes in Court Dance resume for Term 4 at 6.15pm on October 12, at 181 Blues Point Road, North Sydney. The term will run for 10 weeks until 14 December, when we will have a little Christmas-End-of-Year gathering. Week 6 of the term, November 16, will be our Spring Ball – the first such event for 4 years since COVID. We have missed seeing so many EDC friends in that time, so we hope that you’ll be able to make it.

An invitation to current, past and prospective students and friends of the Early Dance Consort – our Christmas Party will be held on Thursday 20th December, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, at the usual class venue, 181 Blues Point Road, North Sydney.  Please come and join us to celebrate with  a little festive dancing, a look at the dances we’ve been learning this year, and to catch up with old friends.

As is the custom, we welcome contributions for the table (simple finger food, non-alcoholic drinks – we’ll provide cups, plates &c). Hope to see you there.

Best wishes for a lovely Christmas – New Year and holiday season,

Fiona & John.
