Kia Ora Ladies,
To adapt to our changing times
I’ll be offering online classes
over 8 seasons for the rest of this year.
One season runs over four weeks and includes four classes a week:
Tuesday, 6pm - 7pm (NZ - GMT +12)
Thursday, 6pm - 7pm (NZ - GMT +12)
Friday, 11am - 12pm (NZ - GMT +12)
Sunday, 11am - 12pm (NZ - GMT +12)
The classes each week will be LIVE or on IGTV on instagram
which means the class ‘live story’ will be available for 24hrs.
Class will also be available for those that use Zoom.
Each season will have a dance we focus on so other short videos
and imagery will be uploaded to help with learning the dance
and its cultural background and intention.
Each season fee is $65.
Include your name and the name of the course.
Payment for seasons will be due
in the first week of each season.
I’m working this out as I go so please bear with me as I will constantly update, shift and adapt with these classes as we go.
I am thankful to have been surrounded with amazing women sharing their time in studio spaces... now it is time to move into a new online space. Hope you will join me.
