We have a number of Facebook pages and groups which people use to help keep in touch with what's going on and to connect with other dancers.

Are you attending Fevah classes or events?

No (but I want to know what's going on)
Then check out our two Facebook Pages
Once you start dancing with us then you can join our groups
Then join one or more of our Facebook Groups as well as like or follow our Pages
We restrict membership to our groups to people whom we've met and are currently active in the dance community.

Facebook Pages

Anyone with access to the internet can view Facebook pages - you don't have to sign up to Facebook.

the OMJ Dance Page is for our Wednesday night class and associated events.

We post notices such as venue changes, upcoming events etc on our pages so you can see what's going on without having to join a group.

Facebook Groups

For the latest news, social events, information and interesting videos, join one or more of our active Facebook groups. All our groups are closed for the privacy and security of our dancers - see below for information about group types.

Fevah Modern Jive, Chch

This our main group for all venues and events in Christchurch where we post updates, dance related stories and videos from around the web, venue changes, class information.

OMJ Chch (Wednesdays)

For OMJ / Wednesdays related information, song requests, notices etc. OMJ dancers (who tend to be in the 18 - 35 age range) are also sometimes looking for like-minded people to flat with so we're happy for you to advertise flat space or if you're looking for somewhere to stay.

MM Fevah (Mondays)

For Monday related information, song requests, notices etc and is less 'busy' than the main group.

My Tuesday Happy

For Tuesday related information, song requests, notices etc and like the Monday group is less busy as is focussed on just the one night.

Fevah Intermediate Hub

For all our intermediate class videos. Membership is just for Fevah intermediate class attendees - without attendees we can't run classes. Special exceptions are made for crew and Fevah volunteers.

You need to be able to say 'Yes' to the following two questions before we approve a request to join:

  • Have you signed in to our website to verify your email address / mobile no?
  • Do you currently attend Fevah intermediate classes every week or so?

Of course once someone stops contributing to the classes by attending then it's understandable that we remove them.

Tips and Guidelines


  • Feel free to contribute with dance related posts, comments, suggestions etc.
  • Post the original link for videos (usually YouTube), stories, blogs etc rather than links to click bait.
  • Ask questions that others might also find useful (otherwise you can just message us in private).
  • Be nice - if you haven't anything good to say then don't say anything at all!


  • Revealing any more personal information than is necessary. E.g. don't list your phone number, address, date of birth etc.
  • Adding friends or others to the group - we just won't add them, they need to apply in person.
  • Advertising for jobs, vacancies, work (use your own wall / status).
  • Sharing Link bait / Click bait - use the original resource that is found on the click bait page - we hate Click bait - bleurrghh.
  • Creating private events for the group.

Looking after our Community

Our groups are only for current active dancers in the Modern Jive dance community or who have a special connection with us.

Having too many members in a group can be detrimental to the way people interact with each other because we no longer know who many of the people are! Once someone unsubscribes we tend to remove them from the groups but they can still follow our pages if they want in order to keep up with what's going on.

Group Types

Below is a summary of Group Types, for more information go to the Facebook website. For Closed we only allow the group Admins to add people to the group.

We recommend people avoid Public groups (unless you're really confident about FB's privacy settings)
