About Us

Rise Dance Company


Our Mission/Values:

At Rise Dance Company our experienced dance instructors share their passion for dance with over 800 students weekly.  Our belief is that everyone should dance regardless of age, ability or gender and that dancing should, first and foremost, be fun. We take pride in offering quality dance lessons at an affordable price, without the stress of sitting exams or the additional cost of buying class uniforms etc. We have classes for 3-year-olds right through to adults .Genres taught at Rise include Hip Hop, Acro Dance, Jazz & Contemporary and have venues in Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, Papamoa, Omokoroa and Rotorua as well as teaching in many schools.

Exams? No way!

Children have enough going on at school and are pressured at an increasingly young age to excel and compete. Rise Dance Company offers a positive environment where students can come and experience dance simply for the fun and enjoyment of it. For those wanting more of a challenge or are considering dance as a career we encourage you to audition for our competition and performance groups.
We also offer intensive workshops throughout the year for those interested.

Public or School classes

What’s the difference?

We understand children can have busy lives with multiple extra curricula activities throughout the week. With busy families in mind, Our school classes are immediately before or after school or at lunchtime. The Public dance classes are after school or during the weekend.
School classes are less technical in nature so are better suited to those with no or little dance experience. Our Public classes are more technical and our expectation of students is higher. School classes are less expensive but are slightly shorter than public classes. 
Quite often students who start in school classes progress on to our Public classes or do them both!
