Classes

We hold classes every Monday and Wednesday evening during the university terms, with two classes each night. Our focus is to provide a fun, social atmosphere that always welcomes new members. No partner required! Classes are currently held in the Riccarton High School Hall.

Dance Styles

All the dance styles we teach are partner dances. The main ones are:

  • Modern Jive, a flashy and fun dance set to modern dance music. It features plenty of fancy-looking spins and dips without complex footwork.
  • Bachata, a Latin dance from the Dominican Republic.
  • Salsa, a popular Latin dance with slightly more complex footwork.
  • We run occasional special classes introducing other styles. Examples include Cha, Zouk, Rock and Roll, Rueda. Keep an eye on our newsletters to see what's coming up!

The styles for 2018 are:

Term 1 Modern Jive, Bachata
