Amanda releases original music and does regular shows; LIVE MUSIC LIVE DANCE, where her dancers get to choreo and perform. Shows and presentations are very encouraged, as they shape the student to become a great dancer with having to perform to their highest ability, also with extra rehearsals.  She does endeavour to keep the costs lower for these. And its such a great opportunity for all.


Banished is the word exam....from this day forth

in the land of the long white cloud and beyond,

proud kiwis (and some not so native birds) will

learn, grow, shine and perform their dance

through DanceNZmade Performance, Contemporary andHip Hop Levels. Studios will become stages anddancers will become celebrated stars!"

My Izabell loves to dance, 7yrs old,  and when she heard there was a dance class happening during the holidays she wanted to go. Amanda was more than accommodating to our needs. Izabell had a great time spending the day with Amanda and learning some new steps and styles to add to her dance routine. She even performed some dances at end of the day for us to see.
