Fun social dance classes

Located within the C3 Centre, 269 Hills Road, Shirley, this venue has a great feel and is also where we hold our monthly dance parties. There are over 100 parking spaces available (map below).

Thursday is our most popular night with usually over 100 people of all ages regularly attending. 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.

7:25 Easy warmup
7:30 Beginner Class

8:30 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 🙂

Intermediate Class

We teach 2-3 moves, one of which may be repeated from the previous week. We include extra technique points to help with safety and style.

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

9:00 Class review with the teacher

We want everyone to have fun and be safe at our dance classes. To help with this we have a skills check that we ask everyone to pass before joining an intermediate class.

Team Routine

This is a special class for the intermediate / advanced team to prepare for this year's Christchurch Champs in April.

Being part of a team is very beneficial for ones dancing from technique and skills through to stamina and performance. There will be other practice sessions outside of class as well.

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...
