Welcome back Pump dancers and hello to our new dancers! We are so excited to dance with you this year. We are running Welcome Workshops for all dancers who would like a taster of our 2019 classes. Check out the timetables below for our Wellington, Khandallah and Eastbourne workshops. They are absolutely free and everyone is welcome. No need to sign up, just come along and have a boogie!
The newest Air NZ Safety video features 70 Pump dancers, giving it everything they’ve got, in a hip hop safety rap! Not only did we perform in the vid, but studio director Libby George was the lead choreographer for all of the community groups throughout NZ. It was a huge project to be part of and we had an absolute ball performing with an awesome bunch of Kiwis.

Throughout term one and two, our hip hop crews and jazz troupes have been working hard towards various competitions. We've had some amazing results from all ages and we couldn't be prouder of all our teams for their positive attitudes and fantastic teamwork. The Pump coaches are excited for the term 3 competitions coming up and also cannot wait to start creating the dances for our end of year production. Let the good times roll!
Our studio reopens on Monday 12th February with all our regular dance classes kicking off that week. We are amped to get back into dancing with our Wellington, Khandallah and Eastbourne students. Our weekly classes will be working on nailing different styles of dance within their genre while our competitive teams will be performing in a showcase at the end of term. If you want to trial any dance class for free, just hit us up for the info then come along and have a jam!
Term one runs from Monday 12th February to Sunday 15th April and we are also closed over Easter weekend.

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!
Your favourite Pump teachers are performing in an original show this weekend!

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!
