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 at Ti-Kouka, Haere-roa on both Mondays and Wednesdays.

Dance Styles

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

  • Bachata, a Latin dance from the Dominican Republic.
  • Salsa, a popular Latin dance with slightly more complex footwork.
  • Rueda, a exciting group dance that is danced in a large circle.
  • We run occasional special classes introducing other styles. Examples include Cha, Zouk, Rock and Roll. Keep an eye on our newsletters to see what's coming up!
