Experience Dance As It’s Meant To Be

By | Performance & Workshop, Social Dancing, Studio News | No Comments

Even though Society as a whole is offering more and more choices, there are still very few ways you can be entertained and be part of the entertainment.

This is where Social Ballroom, Latin and New Vogue nights have stood the test of time for over 60 years.

We are proud to host such an event which allows both dancers and non-dancers to enjoy beautiful music, watch fantastic Ballroom dancing & partake in a Barn Dance or New Vogue bracket.

For the price of a “normal” night on the town you will get over 4 hours of dance time, delicious 2 course meal, fully licensed bar plus a dance show.

Limited tickets available, last day of purchase is Tuesday 4th December 9pm…Book NOW!

The Best Night On The Town!

By | Performance & Workshop, Social Dancing | No Comments

It happens only once per year and makes every other Christmas Party look drab and boring, it’s The International Dance Studio’s Annual Christmas Party!

Unlike any other event this is one that both non-dancers and social dancers can enjoy. Why?

There is dance entertainment, a delicious 2 course sit down dinner, fully licensed bar and fantastic variety of Ballroom, Latin and New Vogue Music…plus LOTS of social dancing.

Dance skills are not necessary for this event, I say again – you do not need to know how to dance. But you do need to know how to have a good time!

We welcome individuals and tables of 10 and pre-purchase of a ticket is essential by Tuesday 4th December.

You can secure your ticket today only here for either Adult or Junior.

If you have never danced before, never fear. We have had many people simply come for the night and end up joining classes the following weeks because it was such a fun night.

If you are an avid social dancer who attends every event Canberra has to offer then you will not be disappointed, in fact you’ll be happy you joined in the action.

Tickets are VERY limited, so immediate action is required to be part of this special event…Secure your seat today.

Tickets on Sale Now for Friday 7th December from 7pm at the Italo-Australian Club in Forrest.

Please call 6162 0006 for further information.

Canberra 100 Celebrations Launched!

By | Performance & Workshop, Social Dancing, Studio News | No Comments

The Studio is very proud to be part of this exciting and “once in a lifetime” event!

It’s part of the Kick up Your Heels Celebrations.

Here is the Synopsis of the night:

“The Roaring Twenties was a time of economic prosperity, social, artistic and cultural dynamism. It gave rise to unprecedented industrial growth, female voting, great music, movies and of course various forms of dance, such as Waltz, Foxtrot and Charleston were popularized.

Celebrate this glamorous decade and the Centenary of Canberra at The Albert Hall in style, with a theme of your choice from “The Roaring Twenties” for a once in a lifetime night on the town.

Relive the bygone era with the sounds of ARIA Nominated Music Director Geoff Power and vocals by Greg Poppleton with his “The Lounge Bar Lotharios” original 1920’s 11 piece big jazz band.

It’s a wonderful evening full of Social Dancing plus exciting Live Cabaret & Dance Performances from The International Dance Studio, Licensed Bar (Prohibition Safe), Food, Prizes and more.”

All we can say is stay tuned for all prices and more information including a separate website to be built at:

Also view: the Canberra100 Website for all that is happening in Canberra.

We will be hosting a 9 week “get ready to dance” course Starting in January 2013.

The International Dance Studio, Formerly Penny de Kauwe School of Dance has officially opened!

We celebrated the evening by providing a night of dancing – on us! Food, Drink, Dance, Entertainment we had it all.

The evening began with food served by Delissio Brasserie  who don’t cater events but thankfully they were kind enough to provide food for all.

The audience was wowed with a showcase featuring a variety of levels and ages (from Juvenille to Masters) demonstrating Ballroom, Latin & New Vogue plus a feature showcase “Dancin’ Fools” by the studio’s performance group.

After this the crowd participated in a dance class to learn basic Salsa and Slow Rhythm completed with a Progressive Barn Dance. This led into the evening’s weekly Social Dancing  which was a hit until late in  the night.

Many thanks to all of the studios students and supporters from many years before and well into the future.

We look forward to bringing you the best in today’s Ballroom, Latin, New Vogue dancing from all over the world to help you become the best social or competitive dancer you can be, whilst having a great time learning a new skill.

A massive thank you to all our wonderful teachers who really bring a level of quality and fun to the studio rarely seen.
