Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the festival this year?

Thursday 30th May - Monday 3rd June 2024. The first social dance starts at 8pm on Thursday evening and our last social dance ends mid afternoon on Monday.

What days are the workshops on, do we need to be there on Monday?

There are classes all day Saturday and Sunday, and until around 1pm on the Monday. Thursday night and Friday are all social dance and fun activities.

We are coming from out of town, where should we stay?

All classes are located in North East Valley apart from Monday which is in central Dunedin. All evening socials are in Central Dunedin. It takes all of 15 minutes to drive anywhere around Dunedin so staying anywhere in the main suburban areas will be pretty close but if you don't have a car, the main bus line out to NEV goes often enough and heads through the main street (George St). We suggest staying in the Central or North Dunedin area for convenience.
