🐤 Early bird prices end this Sunday! So even if you're just looking at attending the social events then you can get a Socials Only pass.
Then again, you don't have to wait until October for more of our great social dance opportunities. We also have two parties coming up this month and another workshop. See below for more details.
Our dancing in the community continues with a planned visit to Summerset Retirement Home in Wigram where we've been invited to provide a bit of entertainment for the residents.
Keep dancing, keep smiling,

♻️ Refresh Dance Weekend ♻️
We have something for everyone from parties and workshops through to competitions.
For the first time we have a couple of workshops that are geared towards dance health, more specifically:
- lower limb biomechanics, presented by a top dance podiatrist
- strength, preparation & injury prevention presented by a physiotherapist
Both of these workshop presenters have experience with Modern Jive and are keen to provide us with helpful, relevant, dance specific information.
At the two dance parties we'll have performances from top Modern Jive dancers from around NZ as part of the competition activities. Note: you do not need to enter the competition to attend the dance parties and watch the performance 🙂
Early bird prices end this Sunday so book now!
In the event that the weekend has to be cancelled due to COVID etc we'll give full refunds (or even if you have any other reason to cancel)
🏆 Competition Tips, Tricks & Strategies 🏆
Join James for a two hour workshop geared to get the most out of competing. We spend many hours preparing for, travelling to and participating in competitions, why? Because they're FUN and exciting!

🕺 Private Lessons 💃
We're getting more enquiries about private lessons with our teachers so we've created a page to help you get in touch with them (many of them are also on Facebook).
Reasons people book private lessons include:
- Improve technique and styling
- Fast track to intermediate level
- Boost confidence
- Improve timing and musicality
- Competition preparation

Dancing in the community
Please come and help us entertain! Dancers of all levels are welcome. We love helping out in the community and this month we're dancing at a retirement home in Wigram. Many of the residents used to dance when they were younger and we've been asked to dance for them.
- Sunday August 22nd, 2pm - 2:45pm
- Summerset at Wigram, 135 Awatea Road.
The floor is 9m x 9m, lino on concrete. Please let us know if you're interested. These kind of events are always so rewarding for everyone and it's a pleasure to be able to help out.
Simply iDance Weekend
A dance weekend comprising workshops, fun competition and this year there'll be a spectacular medieval ball at Te Papa!
This event is very well run and popular with Fevah dancers.
