Fun social dance classes

Come to Papanui High School, 30 Langdons Road for a wide range of music from 80's through to current chart hits, Monday has a great upbeat feel to kick off the week appealing to a wide range of ages. Plus we have our unique Variations class (see below).

There is water but no cups at the venue so please bring a named water bottle with you.

Beginner Class

We start with the basics followed by learning a few moves which you can immediately start to use in your social dancing.

You can start any week at any venue. Included in the evening is a 30 minute review session to ask questions and get one to one assistance.

7:10 Easy warmup
7:15 Beginner Class
8:00 Social dancing and practice
8:15 Review with the Taxi dancers

After the review there is social dancing until the end of the night (details below) which is included in your entry. Of course you don't have to stay until the end but you're more than welcome to 🙂

Variations Class

This class is aimed at anyone who has attended more than 10 classes and is ideal for developing either lead or follow roles. We teach moves that are variations of mainly beginner moves, one of which may be repeated from the previous week.

Variations can also include aspects of styling and musicality not covered on other nights.

After the class is a review with the teacher to ask questions and get one to one assistance.

Social Dancing

It's party time as we turn the lights down, hit the dance floor to have some fun and put it all into practice. Social dancing is a great way to meet other people and get fit.

We encourage everyone to ask each other to dance, sometimes this can be a little daunting but there's no pecking order or bias - leads ask follows and follows ask leads. Check out our...
