About Rise Dance Company:
We are a Tauranga based dance school teaching over 700 students weekly. Our belief is that everyone should dance regardless of age, ability or gender and that dancing should, first and foremost, be fun.
We have classes for 3 year olds right through to adults with special classes for preschoolers, teens, boys & adults.
We teach Hip Hop, Acro Dance, Jazz & Contemporary and have venues in Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa and Rotorua as well as teaching in many schools.
Exams?? No way!!!
Children have enough going on at school and are pressured at an increasingly young age to excel and compete. Rise Dance Company offers a positive environment where students can come and experience dance simply for the fun and enjoyment of it. For those wanting more of a challenge or are considering dance as a career we encourage you to audition for our competition and performance groups.
We also offer intensive workshops throughout the year for those interested.
Public or School classes – what’s the difference?
School classes are immediately before or after school or at lunchtime. Public classes are after school or during the weekend.
School classes are less technical in nature so are better suited to those with no or little dance experience. Our Public classes are more technical and our expectation of students is higher.
School classes are less expensive but are slightly shorter than public classes. We accept fewer students in our public classes than our school classes.
Please note that if you have not come to class for the full year (eg you joined in terms 2 or 3 or swapped classes during the year) you may not be able to perform in the entire dance/s your group is performing in for our end of year shows.
Quite often students who start in school classes progress on to our Public classes or do them both!
