As our concert dances are being finished, we held the first combined rehearsalfor our Wizard of Oz finale dance on Sunday. The 200+ dancers merged together beautifully and the room was filled with cheering and laughter! We can't wait to blow you all away with our spirit fingers and more!
Huge congrats to the Pump army for shining bright at the NZ Schools Hip Hop Competition! Esteem's 1st, Sassy's 2nd and Artemis' 3rd placing was the cherry on top!
Well done to Onyx, Intensity, Phoenix and Kingdom for making Finals too!
It’s that time of year where we plan our big show,
We usually keep the theme on the down-low.
This year it’s different, we’ll give you some clues,
There’s a strong leading lady with a fab pair of shoes.
Brains, heart and courage are part of the plan,
They just need to find a mythical man.
Striped socks on her nemesis, so wicked and mean,
While new friends in the city, claim it’s easy being green.
Brick roads and twisters and slippers, oh wow.
The time to start guessing our story… is now!
Save the date for our end of year production, Saturday 4 November at the Wellington Opera House!

Youthline Wellington are fighting for funds at the moment, so we decided to raise some money for them with a 'Battle It Out Showcase'. Our Wellington crews and troupes performed their hearts out for judges and audience on Thursday 13th April. They blew us away with their talent, enthusiasm and energy. After two sold out shows, Pump had raised over $1000 for Youthline Wellington and our dancers were already asking when the next showcase would be!
Term one has officially started and our crews are already training for their first competition! We are totally PUMPED to get back into classes... see what we did there?
In eco news, Pump's goal is to go paperless in 2017! We feel privileged to be able to live in such a beautiful country and would like to keep it that way. For our first step, we'll be switching paper rolls and forms for iPads and online docs. Watch this space!
