Update on our COVID-19 virus policy

As of 12 August 2020, Tauranga, New Zealand moved to Alert Level 2. Our advisor has recommended we suspend classes for the following reason:

  • Physical distancing is required to control the current spread of Covid-19

We are still being updated so please check back nearer class times. 

 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 and Samba de Gafieira from beginner level to competition and performance levels. 

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.
