Fevah Modern Jive

📧 December Newsletter

Kia ora Everyone,

The dancing doesn't stop! It may be the last month of the year, and our Christmas parties are mid-month, but we still have dancing every week of the holidays 😄

Perhaps you'd like to give the gift of dance to a friend for Christmas? It's environmentally friendly, excellent for their health and well-being and a heap of fun. Talk to Deb about creating a digital gift voucher you can print or send online.

Our new dancers deal is amazing value. On their first night, new dancers can get 5 weeks of umlimited classes and standard socials for just $50. And if they start before the holidays are over we'll add extra time to make up for the weeks where there is only one class. How great is that?!

🕺 Intermediate Foundations on Sunday

This workshop is suitable for all levels. Whether you're a beginner looking to move up to intermediate or a more experienced dancer wishing to master core technique and skills to become better dancers.

Are you looking to become a taxi dancer or even potentially teach Modern Jive in the future? Then start here by attending our core workshops!

Bookings essential so we can balance leads and follows. No partner necessary 🙂

☕ Sunday Social this Sunday

Everyone is welcome to join us at Avonhead for a dance with lots of space on the dance floor and a proper kitchen.

We play a different mix of music with a more cruisy feel and songs you rarely hear at dance parties or class nights. So come groove with us and enjoy the music variety 🙂

Please bring a small plate to share (sweet or savoury 🥨🧁) - not compulsory but greatly appreciated. Tea and coffee provided ☕️ (soy milk available).

🎄 OMJ Christmas Party

Join us for a great evening and expect something a little different from our usual OMJ night!

Starts with a fun class with all our teachers, suitable for everyone (but with added craziness). Then we ditch the intermediate class in favour of extra freestyle dancing, a few games and a little awards ceremony. Vote for your favourites to win using this online form:

There will also be a collection for the City Mission, so bring an item of non-perishable food to contribute.

🎄 Fevah Christmas Party

I love how the Christmas party has traditionally become the one night everybody makes an effort to get to dancing to catch up with all their dance-friends, new and old. The hall at C3 bursting at the seams, people spilling into the lovely garden, it has a wonderful festive atmosphere.

Matt and I would love to see you there. We'll start with a fun mixer class for all levels. Pick up a dance card when you arrive so you can enter a draw to win free credits. Then there is freestyle to 11pm. Dress festive, or just dress up, it's a party!

  • Date: Thu, 15 Dec 2022
  • Time: 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM
  • Venue: C3 Centre

✨ New Years Eve Party

Come and celebrate the arrival of the new year with us! New Year's Eve is a chance to catch up with friends, socialise and eat as well as dance.

Pay on the door (applies all night)

  • Standard: $30pp or 2 credits
  • Concession: $22pp or 2 credits

Dancing starts at 8:30pm and we'll be going till 12:30am, so we are bound to need snacks! Feel free to bring a small plate to share. We'll provide yummy slice, olie bollen (Dutch delicacies) and chippies 🍰🥨.

Apart from tea and coffee ☕, there'll be Deb's delicious non-alcoholic punch 🥂, plus you may BYO drinks (and glasses) and remember: if you've had too much to drive, you've had too much to dance!

  • Date: Sat, 31 Dec 2022
  • Time: 8:30 PM - 12:30 AM
  • Venue: C3 Centre

📅 Holiday Timetable

We have at least one class a week running over the holiday period. Not everyone goes away, others work over the holiday period and for others our social community is at dance.

Tuesday is running each week until the end of 2022 and then in 2023 we start with a Thursday class.

It's always fun catching up over the holidays and it's a great opportunity to make other plans with dance friends.

🏆 Ceroc NZ Champs Results

A bunch of us headed up to Auckland last weekend for Ceroc NZ Championships 2022. It was a great opportunity to catch up with dance friends from around the country and even several from Australia.

For us, competing is all about seeking out one's own potential, after all the word competition comes from the Latin con petire which means "to seek together".

Congratulations to all our Christchurch dancers who got out on the floor you really made us proud 😊
