Folkdancers' Own - Folk Dance New Zealand Newsletter

Welcome to the FDNZ Newsletter page! Go from here to either the archive of past issues with index, or to the editor's requirements if you want to contribute. Instead, you might find the page of other periodicals more useful.

The archive index lists only feature articles, so doesn't contain regular features...

Regular features:

  • Dance Segments - snippets about what's on and other useful information
  • Dancing On The Web - news and links
  • Weekly Clases - current listings in our Go Dancing! pages
  • Coming Events - current listings in our Events pages
  • Regional E-mail Contacts - see list in Contacts page.

Submissions are welcome from everyone!

FDNZ are delighted with the number of community dancing groups sharing in our initiatives.  It is hoped that people from many communities will find this publication a worthwhile vehicle to share their experiences and enjoy the sharing of like-minded others.

Persons or groups wishing to advertise should read our advertising terms and conditions.

Long-term Vision

Ultimately we desire to fill a hole in the country's cultural archive: documentation of the development of folkloric and community dance here in Aotearoa New Zealand. For that reason this publication is submitted to the National Library archives for future dancers and researchers to learn of our achievements.
