ASPiRE - 2022

Northern Dance Network is hopeful that the ASPiRE Senior Dance Showcase can take place on 1 October 2022.  The 2021 show was a sell out two weeks before the show opened so we are moving to a bigger venue if funding comes through.

Watch this space for further information, and please reach out to [email protected] for any questions, or if you would like to join our Senior Dance classes and dust off your dance shoes to perform next year.

Thanks Creative NZ for supporting creative ageing

Chance to Dance

Due to Covid Chance to Dance was unable to be held in 2021.

Chance to Dance is usually held to celebrate the International Dance Day on 29 April and is a day of FREE CLASSES for all ages. Northern Dance Network is uncertain if it can be held in 2022 but we hope to be able to hold it again in the future.
