So much going on in Feb

Kia ora Everyone,

There's heaps going on this month and our classes are already buzzing - great to see so many new faces as well as our regular dancers.

Three things coming up shortly:

  • Lazy Sundays are back at the Botanic Gardens
  • We are open this Monday (Waitangi Day Holiday)
  • Essential Musicality Remixed coming up on the 14th

Early bird registration for Christchurch Champs ends at the end of the month! Our Champs is renowned for being fun, friendly as well as attracting great talent and now ... bean bags!

If you are Intermediate level or above, have a dance partner and available on Thursdays at 6.45pm, you are welcome to come along to learn a team routine that we will hopefully have ready to perform at Champs. We will at least have a lot of fun learning it. Contact Deb for details.

More workshops have been added to the calendar: Big Moves, Beginner Magic, Intermediate Foundations and more. Check them out and put them in your diary.

Keep dancing, keep smiling
Deb and Matt 🙂

Get together @ Lazy Sundays

The Girls@Fevah group invite everybody - yes, not just girls this time - to meet at 1pm at the Archery Lawn before the Lazy Sundays music starts up at 2pm. Hopefully 1pm is early enough to grab a good spot close to the front.

Bring something to sit on, your own drinks and maybe some nibbles to share. We'll have a little picnic and chat, and then hopefully a chance to dance when the music starts. The line up sounds great for dancing this week 🙂

Essential Musicality Remixed

Leads / men - learn to enhance your dancing to a wide range of music genres, moods and speeds. The follows / women are already filling up the workshop spaces.

At the end of our beginner classes you'll often see the teacher & demo / taxis do a musicality version of the class. This is what this workshop is about. Musicality can take basic moves and turn them into an engaging dance experience for you and your partner.

Musicality is so much fun that we even have a special competition category at our Chch Champs called Music Mashup where dancers dance to a number of song clips one after the other! We'll include Mashup practice in this workshop.

Christchurch Champs

The annual Christchurch Modern Jive Championships is one of the main Modern Jive events in Australasia. We welcome dancers from around the country and it's a great opportunity to dance with others, make new friends and be inspired.

We have many categories spread over the three days with something for everyone whether you have a partner or not.

We have a special 3-day social pass for non-competitors that allows you to watch and social dance across the whole weekend.
