"I can't speak highly enough about your DanceNZmade Interschool. The kids really get into the supportive learning atmosphere,take away new skills, and it isn't the logistical nightmare of other dance based competitions. Our kids just want to take part and see others dance and cheer each other on. It's fantastic."
