‘One More Time’ Workshop (Date & Time TBC)

‘One More Time’ International Dance Workshop – Andre van de Plas (2019)

Anyone who was ever in a class with Andre would have heard that phrase numerous times while learning a dance, and it has become synonymous with him. Over 700 dances from 51 different countries have been left with us – a truly remarkable legacy. He would be very happy to know that his last 12 are now being danced around Australia. In Canberra, Lesley, Theresa and Rebecca (FDC’s excellent teachers) will be presenting the last of Andre’s dances – don’t miss out!
