Happy 2014!
January 6th, 2014

JC Family Christmas photo 2013 was an incredible year! It was the year my youngest learnt how to walk and then talk; it was the year my oldest went to preschool for the very first time. (And the answer is YES, my life is defined by my kids!) Hmmm… Any changes for me personally?


The Ultimate Ballroom night @ Robson Square
July 26th, 2013

Come out and join us for a fun night of dancing at Robson Square this Friday July 26! We will be starting the evening with a FREE Social Foxtrot lesson at 8pm.

The Unbridled Spirit of the UBC Dance Club
March 13th, 2013

It was yet another fun-tastic event at the UBC Gala Ball this past weekend!!! You never really know what to expect, as the executives are always a brand-new group of kids every year, presented with this massive undertaking of putting on a full-on competition for the local DanceSport community. This year, the execs definitely did not disappoint. They showed everyone their unbridled spirit and enthusiasm towards dancing, that (as I know from experience) can only come out of being at the UBC Dance Club!
