‘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.
