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.
8 March 2023
It is March already and line dancing classes, socials and events/workshops are well and truly up and running across the state.
The QLDA Committee have been really busy over the last month or so with plans for our 3 big major events this year.
Synchronised Social – Sunday 11 June
These socials will run across the state at various venues. Times are usually 10am until 2pm with our synchronised dances happening at 11am and 1pm. More information and venues to come.
QLDC (Queensland Line Dance Competition) - 15/16 July
Our competition is now being held over 2 days as a stand-alone event.
We will welcome Jennifer Hughes back as our Head Judge for the weekend and John Hughes will be our “music man” for the event.
Competition will be during the days and there will be an “All-Request” Social hosted by QLDA on Saturday night. The venue for the weekend is the Pine Rivers Showgrounds Hall at Lawnton. We hope that you will all come and support our competition.
Queensland Line Dance Ball – Saturday 7 October
Our Ball this year will be a one night only event with a workshop hosted by Travis Taylor. An information flyer is available on our Facebook Page. QLDA are still deciding on the Charity that the profits from this event will be donated to – so watch this space!!
Once again I would like to thank you all for supporting QLDA and I would really like to pay tribute to our incredibly hard working committee. We all do our “jobs” on a volunteer basis – really just for the love of it if I am honest.
Our monthly Zoom meetings are incredibly productive but also filled with lots of laughter! We all just want to do our best to promote line dancing across Queensland. Thank you guys – it is wonderful working with you all.
Take care, stay safe and I will catch up with you on the dance floor soon.
Life is precious – so Dance Hard, Dance Queensland!
