Welcome to “A note from Jo…” which will be updated monthly. Each month I am going to post a few snippets on this page letting people who access our website know what QLDA has achieved over the past month and what it has has planned for the future. I feel that it is important for non-QLDA Members to keep abreast with what we are doing in the hope that they will join our association in the future. I do hope that you all enjoy the content of our website and if you have any suggestions for additions/improvements, please let us know.
Wow – I thought last month was busy – but just look at all the events/activities our members have been involved in over the last month.
- Stephen Paterson celebrating 20 years!!
- Dallas Linedancers Lake Perseverance Weekend

Congratulations to our own QLDA Members, Luke Watson and Stephen Paterson, on their amazing achievements at the Australian Line Dance Awards in Tamworth. We also had quite a few QLDA members (Luke Watson, Rebecca Canavan-Fox, Niki Tummers, Jean Linz, Maree Small, Noelene Allen – hope I didn’t miss anyone) compete at Tamworth and there will be a full report on their achievements in our next newsletter.
Oh my goodness – and it continues!!! Our very own QLDA Committee Member, Cathy Breed, was placed second in the ALDC Jan Wylie Memorial Award Waltz Choreography for her beautiful waltz: “I Held Her First”.
Queensland Line Dance Ball (1st & 2nd October)
Put these dates in your Diary!!! Darren Mitchell is coming to present the 2 Workshops over the weekend. There is a “Save The Date” flyer later in the Newsletter – theme is Red, White and Silver (Fire & Ice).
- Saturday – Workshop then Ball

Once details are finalised later in the year, registrations will open up for this great event.
Take care everyone and I will catch up with you on the dance floor at some stage.
Life is precious – so Dance Hard, Dance Queensland!
