Refresh Dance Weekend
My Refresh
Workshops Summary

We have a number of workshops and sessions designed to refresh your dance skills and knowledge.

We're introducing 'Dance Adjacent' workshops to the weekend. These workshops involve interactive presentations to help dancers better understand how to look after their bodies, keep them in tip top condition and reduce the risk of injury.

Judges' Intensive

Open to all dancers who may an interest in this topic even if you are not interested in judging itself.

As far as we're aware this is a New Zealand first for Modern Jive and we're offering this workshop at a considerable discount to mark this special occasion.

There're are two streams:

  • Judge Stream is for judges whose scores have contributed to competitors' final placings
  • Observer Stream is for anyone else who is keen to expand their knowledge of what's involved behind the scenes.

Online participation begins in September and then concludes with a session on Refresh Friday 6:00pm - 7:30m
