Expressions Dance Company

Does your child love to dance? Make up dance shows to music on Youtube or TV? Dream of dancing on stage with the lights and makeup and music? Do you want to enrol them in classes where they learn more than just dance steps? Dance classes build confidence and are a great form of exercise that doesn't feel like exercise! Expressions Dance Company is a place where everyone can engage in dance classes which enable and nurture them to be the best person they can be – both as a dancer and as an individual. We have classes in Ballet, Jazz and Tap for kids from age 2.5 -18. We are a low pressure school - no "Dance Moms" drama - our focus is on having fun while dancing and learning more about ourselves. For more information, please visit our website - www.expressionsdance.nz - or ring Leticia on 0274625797

Parent to Parent

Grab a free coffee and chat with other parents and carers who know what it’s like to care for a disabled child, a neurodiverse child, or a child with health impairments.

Parent to Parent hosts monthly Parent Support Groups in Christchurch during the school term, to support carers and parents just like you. These groups are a safe space for family and whānau to share their experiences, their challenges, their triumphs, and to learn from each other in an open and 100% judgement-free environment. No topic is too ‘weird’, no question too ‘out there’. We get it, and we are here to help.

So if you’d like to share a struggle, celebrate a success, raise a concern, or simply have a cuppa and chat with other parents and carers in your area, you are always welcome at our Parent Support Group. Children are welcome too! Drop in for as long or as short a time as you want. And did we mention there’s free coffee??
