Update on our COVID-19 virus policy

We are fortunate to have at our school one of New Zealand's leading front-line doctors who are tackling this pandemic.  With the range of statements being made about this virus the Dance Factory is adhering to her advice.

  • As of 17 March 2020 we are suspending all classes until more information comes to light.  We have been advised that if you have had any contact with someone who has traveled through any airport to undertake a 14 day social isolation.  At this point social distancing is required and we are accepting our social responsibility to minimize the spread of this virus.

Please continue to practice good cough etiquette and hand hygiene. Soap and water are considered most effective. Keep a social distance of 2-metres and wash door knobs and surfaces often.  For more information visit Ministry of Health:

About Us

We are based in the Bay of Plenty regions and seek to grow classes throughout New Zealand. 

We run weekly partner dance classes teaching various styles of Zouk, Samba de Gafieira, Brazilian styles and Bachata from beginner level to intermediate/advanced. 

We host a number of events and workshops throughout the region for learning and fun.  We can provide private lessons for groups or couples for any event.

The Dance Factory is the education arm of the Positive Connection Community Trust whose objectives are to bring awareness to the community about the benefits of dance and to support dancers to achieve their potential.

We pride ourselves on our passionate and experienced contractors and training teachers: Arthur Flintoff and Sarah Sargison.  Our facilitators are committed to personal development and inhouse training.
