Intermediate and advanced dance classes

If you’ve completed our beginner classes or have been involved in Ballroom, Latin American or New Vogue dancing at another studio, and want to attend a more advanced class, we have classes from Bronze to Oscar medal levels.

We recommend you check our class timetable and then contact us to discuss the class best suited to you.

For ladies without partners, there are still many more women than men involved in our form of dance, particularly at the higher levels. We will do everything we can to find a suitable partner for you, but can’t guarantee a partner.

Dance Club

Wednesdays
8.15pm-9.15pm
50 Commerce Street
$15 pp casual rate, $120 10-lesson concession card

Our Dance Club is for dancers who have learnt the basics of the Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba and Jive and want to have somewhere to dance every week. You'll also continue advancing your dancing, learning a new move each week - but it won't be as technically focused as a medal class.

You can join at any time, but you do need to come with a dance partner. If you don't have one, please let us know and we may be able to organise a dance partner for you. 

Medal tests

Footwork Dancesport Studio is affiliated with the New Zealand Federation of Dance Teachers (NZFDT) and the Society of Australasian Teachers of Dance (SATD) and therefore provides the opportunity for students to undertake a medal test at various levels in Ballroom, Latin American and New Vogue.

These internationally recognised medal tests give you a goal to aim for and are a great way to get feedback from an examiner on your dancing, but they are not compulsory. Social medals are available as well as all levels of International medals (Bronze through to Oscar).

On completion of your medal test you will receive a report sheet with valuable comments from the examiner, a medal and certificate.
