New Zealand Dance Adventure

New Zealand Adventure-Dance Exchange

April 10-16, 2011 

Once upon a time...

 in a not-so-far-away land...

    .... a lovely young dancer from New Zealand visited Seattle and fell in love with the American style of close-connection swing and blues dancing she encountered there (blues, blues-fusion, balboa, etc).  So she decided to invite her favorite teachers and dancers from the USA to come to Auckland to share their craft, to mingle with the locals, and to show them what this close-connection dance form is all about.  In exchange, she and her friends thought it would be nice to share with their guests some of the breath-taking natural wonders and exciting day-adventures that New Zealand's North Island has to offer (hiking, climbing, snorkeling, treking, caving, sailing, etc). 

 ..... And so it was that the idea for the "New Zealand Dance-Adventure & Exchange" was born!

      Come be part of this very new and exciting concept in travel and dance.  It's the perfect recipe for fun, learning, and meeting new friends!  (see recipe details below)

     Group size is limited, so register early!  Discount group housing in the camp's beautiful sea-side bungalow is also space-limited.  The first ten to sign up get a spot! (see the housing page for details). 


 Our recipe for fun down under:
Mornings of "adventure-travel" exploring the breath-taking natural wonders of New Zealand's North Island (hiking, boating, snorkeling, sailing, glow-worm cave adventure, volcano treks, and more...)
- with -
Afternoon opportunities for private and group-private dance classes in various close-connection partner dance styles taught by two of the USA's finest instructors!   
- with -
Fun group outings to local dances, or more relaxed evenings on your own or with the group exploring local attractions, hot-spots, restaurants and clubs, with lot's of opportunities for mixing and mingling with the locals...
All the while crashing with a small but select group of fun, like-minded dance adventurer's in either a beautiful family-style bungalow on one of New Zealand's most pristine beaches (see header picture and photo page) or in one of many cozy adjoining bed & breakfasts...    


  ...and you have 

New Zealand Dance Adventure & Exchange

                ...a totally new concept in dance camp & exchange experiences.
