Fevah Modern Jive

📧 Parties, Socials & More

Kia ora Everyone,

Have you enjoyed your most recent dance experience with us? We are always keen to hear feedback and want to keep improving for you. One of our changes has been the Monday night Variations Classes which are proving to be a popular stepping stone between beginners and intermediate classes. And now we are trying a couple of new things for our social calendar over the next couple of months. Check it out!

We have two dance parties this month!

There are no workshops in March or April, instead we have:

  • OMJ Masterclass this Saturday
  • Easter Sunday Dance party in April

Of course we have our annual Chch Champs in April too which includes a heap of social dancing, especially Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon.

Then, to help encourage you to get more dance practice, healthy exercise and social interaction, we have a special pre-Champs Fevah Fan deal available for March and April. See below for more info.

🎓 OMJ Master Class this Saturday

Masterclass 6 - 7pm at the C3 Centre, 269 Hills Road.

Join James for the first ever Masterclass aimed at fine tuning your dancing and taking it up a notch (or two).

He'll be teaching 'Where's Your Weight At: communicating where you are at any given moment, and how to listen to where your partner is.'

When you understand and engage techniques like this you will find you can dance far more complex movements with your partner more smoothly and easily than ever before.

  • No need to book, just turn up 🙂
  • Masterclass + Party: 2 credits
  • Masterclass only: 1.5 credits

✨ Dance Party this Saturday

Everybody is welcome!

The first of three OMJ dance parties this year is this Saturday at the C3 Centre, 269 Hills Road. Note the later start time of 8:30 with doors open at 8:15pm.

Music will be typical of a Wednesday night with lots of fresh modern songs and heaps of opportunity for musicality.

  • Date: Sat, 11 Mar 2023
  • Time: 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
  • Venue: C3 Centre

✨ 80's Era Dance Party

Also known as Ferris Bueller's Dance Party. Ferris Bueller's Day Off was hit movie from the 80's celebrating making the most of life even if it meant skipping school 😛

Expect lots of great 80s music and lots of wonderful people like you to dance with. Maybe even put an 80s vibe into your dance wardrobe for the night to fit the theme - totally optional of course, just a bit of fun.

Hey, and as Ferris said "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while [or come to a dance party], you could miss it."

So important details for this party:

  • Date: Sat, 18 Mar 2023
  • Time: 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
  • Venue: C3 Centre
