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.

Hi everyone,

Wow – what a month it has been for QLDA.

Our second Competition was held at Cooroy in February (see article later in the newsletter) and it was a resounding success.

We now have an official name for our competition:  QLDC – Queensland Line Dance Competition and yes – it will be an annual event.  Next year – bigger and better.

Thank you to all the competitors, judges, scorers and all those people behind the scenes who made these two mornings happen.  It is a wonderful thing to see the camaraderie amongst line dancers. 

To those of you who came to watch and support our competitors – thank you – your encouragement, spontaneous applause and just your presence was truly great to see.  We had quite a few young dancers on the floor and the clapping and cheering for them certainly had an impact.  I was sitting at the Scorer’s Table, so really took note of their faces.

Every month I trawl through Facebook to find photos of our members line dancing.  If you get a moment, please email your photos in to us – much easier for me to manage at this end.

Just a note: Check out all the new choreography on our website – some great dances there!!!

In these unprecedented times it is important for us all to take care of our health. If you are dancing – please listen to the advice from the Government regarding the Coronavirus pandemic – it is so important to stay up to date with all the information and at the present moment that is changing daily.

Those of us who are Instructors will always consider the health of not only ourselves but of you, our dancers. At the end of the day, the decision to attend dance classes is an individual one and I, for one, will always respect any decision that you make. We will all get through this – it just may take a little time.

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!!

Cheers

Jo Rosenblatt
