Calling from outside New Zealand?

Within NZ the long-distance prefix is 0. Substitute +64 where (0) is shown, + being your international dialling access (often 00).

New Zealand is 12 to 13 hours ahead of UTC. It's safest to ring around sunrise in London, but not much later.

Cultural or community group? We can help you!!

Does your dance group or community have access to tutoring expertise and interesting ethnic or cultural folk dance repertoire, music, or performance choreography?

Have you considered hosting a weekend event in your community open to enthusiastic folk dancers from around NZ, keen to meet with other folk dancers, learn about diverse folk dance styles, and gain new repertoire?
