Fevah Modern Jive
📧 Fevah May Newsletter
Kia ora Everyone,
It's always tempting to stay home when heading into the dark months, fortunately dancing is a great indoor activity that provides maintainence for mind body and spirit! After a quiet time over Easter we are happy to welcome a flurry of new dancers across all nights but especially on Wednesdays. Of course, there are lots of different dance opportunities coming up for everyone at Fevah and OMJ. Check out the details below or on our frequently updated website.
We had some visitors over from Australia who were really impressed with how welcoming and friendly everyone is - so we'd like to thank you all for helping create this warm and wonderful community.
Registrations are now open for our annual weekender of workshops and social dancing - the Winter Weekender - it's a great opportunity to dive deeper into technique and skills with plenty of socialising and dancing. See details further down about how to get involved.
Plus, we have a special offer for you... Our May and June special is for dancers who would like to come along even more: if you pay for and attend 8 classes in the calendar month all subsequent visits are free for that month 🙂
Keep dancing, keep smiling,
Deb & Matt
🙂 Bringing a Smile to Others
10 dancers recently danced for residents at Summerset at Wigram. We love doing these kinds of events. Many of the residents used to dance when they were younger and really enjoy watching some dancing in person. We play songs that they would have enjoyed in their youth.
Our next charity event is a dance class for Impact Youth on the 28th of July. This will be the third time we've worked with them and it's a very moving and enjoyable experience. They are young adults with some form of intellectual disability / impairment and are a joy to be with. Put it in your diary and keep an eye out nearer the time for details about how to get involved.
🎓 Master Class this Saturday
🦆 Master class on Duck Turns from zero to hero 🦸
Alice and Nathan will carefully guide you in this rare opportunity for anyone wishing to learn or improve their duck turn skills.
These kind of moves are great when done with the right technique and are definitely the mark of an all round intermediate and above dancer.
- 6pm - 7pm at the C3 Centre, 269 Hills Road.
- no need to book, just turn up 🙂
- 1 credit
