ACCOMMODATION FOR COOLY ROCKS ON

I've had an enquiry from a male dancer from Perth, who is looking for someone to share accomodation at Cooly.

He's booked accommodation at Rainbow Bay from Wednesday 5th to Sunday 9th inclusive (checkout Monday).

Your room would be: 1 bedroom of 2 single beds in a 2-bedroom unit, separate bathroom in a spacious unit overlooking Rainbow Bay. It's on the corner of Ward St and Marine Terrcae, closer to Rainbow Bay Surf Club.

The other bedroom with en suite is the master bedroom, which will be taken by Perth guy.

Cost to you $90pn. Looking for someone  non-smoking, respectful, fit, female preferred but can be a reliable male.

He is fit and reliable, non-smoker, non-drinker etc, semi-retired, financially independent.


He's still looking for accommodation 29th of May to 4th of June night inclusive, doesn't necessarily have to be at Coolangatta if near bus route. He'd be happy to rent a room in private home near the Italo-Australian Club.  He likes 50s 60s rock and roll, he dances 2 Siroc Styles, also ballroom, rumba, cha cha, basic fox trot and some new vogue. He can dance all night.

If you are interested in discussing it further, please call him on 0401 686 788.

Pam and Roy Blowers have been creating a portfolio of online utube dance lessons and will be continuing to add to the collection.

The concept behind our online utube dance lessons is - mixing styles and steps according to one's level of fitness and physical ability.

We have created a facebook page, which lists all our utube videos, (see link under Classes page) - we are up to Utube 49 and will be continuing to add to our collection.  Their lessons include Rockabilly, 4x step jive, swing, and some partner dances and are still absolutely FREE.

You can google: 'Rock and Roll Dance Stylle Mix' and lots of iTune videos pop up that way.

DANCE FLOOR COURTESY

Here is the Gold Coast Rockers Etiquette on the Dance Floor:

1.     Wear clothing and dance shoes that make it easy and enjoyable to dance in.

2.     Personal Grooming - Shower and use a deodorant. Always take a hand towel, deodorant and a clean shirt to freshen up.  

         Brush teeth and use mouthwash or breath freshener. Abstain from foods that produce strong odours eg. garlic. The odour

         of cigarettes on one's breath or clothing is unattractive.

3.      Please ask ladies: Would you like to dance?

4.      Please ask men: Would you like to dance?

5.      Declining to dance: No thank you, I'm taking a break.

6.     Sharing the floor: If there is a mixture of dance styles on the floor, ballroom or circle partner dancers have the outside

         circle heading in an anti-clockwise direction.  Rock n Roll dancing is in the middle, Swing on the side.

7.     Dips and Lifts: The only thing to be said about aerials on the social dance floor is: Don't do them. While they may look 'cool'

         the execution of aerials requires training by a qualified instructor. Don't do them by yourself unless you are trained, and

         certainly don't do them on the social dance floor.

8.     Today's beginners will be the good dancers of tomorrow, so be nice to them and dance with them.

9.     Smile, be warm, be personable, be nice.

10.     Be considerate of other couples on the floor. Exercise good floor craft.  No large steps to be taken, dancing should be

         done in a 3 ft circumference.

11.     No stilettos to be worn on the dance floor.

12.       Be happy, be social and have FUN
