F A Q ' s


I usually find that dance is my escape, but staying at home and having my kids climb all over me while I dance, I can't get the same feeling as being in a physical dance class with you guys! Please help!

For those of you that use dance as a *physical* escape from the kids and from work, and all of that good stuff: never fear! We will have pre-recorded teaching supplements and live and online classes that you can access anytime, from any where. Outside of the house if you need to, or while the kids are asleep (!) with a step by step choreographed guide to each Live lesson, or modules that you can access separately. You can purchase these as a dance module or by signing up to our Live classes where they will be automatically be sent to you each week to pull from.

What is your protocol in the next couple of weeks depending on what Alert Level we're in?

As we move out of Alert Level 4 and Level 3 and transition into Level 2 we will be holding physical classes as well as streaming our classes online Live for those who either a) want to escape from home or b) join from the comfort of their own location/bubble. These will also be accompanied by pre-recorded choreographic videos to help you if you had trouble in class or at home (laggy internet, laggy music). This will be shot from front and back, to help you figure out your lefts from rights!

We realise classes like music and drama might work well online, but how does dance work from my child, with all the formations? How will you guys work around this over an online class and will it be worth learning online if our kids cannot do this?

Online classes are fantastic tools for kids to not only learn their choreography individually but also learn their counts properly and to not copy others (which often happens in physical classes). We are finding that online classes are empowering kids and adults to not only know their moves inside out but also bring individual strength and knowledge to their dances. This is a fantastic tool to use within Level 4 and 3 and with the new announcements from the goverment, we envisage that the last two weeks of the 8 week courses (starting April) can be done physically in person. This means all kids and students can learn their individual choreography online, and their formations physically in class, nearer to the end of the course. This is what we usually do as we head towards performance, so is proven to work well.

I'm a bit fearful of leaving home and to come into the classes, for obvious reasons - what options do you have for me?

We completely understand what a difficult time this is for some! It's been an unprecedented time in history! We're so thankful to have dance as an outlet to express and shake the stress of every day life off! As outlined in Question 1, we will provide a step by step choreographed lesson via pre-recorded videos, so you can access either through enrolling in our Live classes (which will be streamed Live and you can attend from home) or via a module, which you can purchase in our new digital wonderland (launching shortly). These will automatically be sent to you on sign up.

I'm finding it financially difficult but would really like to join a class? Do you have options for me

We understand this has been a tough time for people, and don't want this to be a reason to hinder your access to dance. Please email our accounts team accounts@aucklanddnance.co.nz, to apply for how we can manage your enrollment and payment - we can do this through part payments and AP's or through our new Scholarship section which will offer classes to those in need.

Below are some questions we've had, surrounding our online classes and the changes since COVID-19. We hope they help you too!

About Us

Seattle Kettlebell Club is a neighborhood gym with a world-class program; ranked the #2 kettlebell club on the planet for 2019 by the IKO (International Kettlebell Organization) and #4 in the world for 2018 by the World Association of Kettlebell Sport Clubs in St. Petersburg, Russia. There aren't a lot of gyms dedicated ONLY to kettlebell training. But the decision we made to do just that means at last count we had over 12,000 kettlebell classes under our belt. We're pros, and we get our members safely performing the most technical kettlebell exercises (which some trainers take weeks to teach) in only two hours. We offer classes for fitness and classes for sport, and are able to serve a wide range of fitness levels and schedules by offering up to 10 class times per day with 200 competition grade kettlebells ranging from super-extra-light to extra-heavy to choose from.
