The Annual General Meeting of Folk Dance New Zealand will be held via teleconference this year. This is when we gather to review the achievements of the past year, elect new officers and discuss the coming year's initiatives.

Notices of motion, and nominations for the committee and officers, are called for now.

The agenda will be circulated by 30 July. If you are a member and did not receive yours, please email

for details on how to join the teleconference.

If in Auckland, members might wish to attend in person at 24a Dell Avenue, Remuera.

This will be held a day after the International Dance Workshop and Winter WarmUp - a chance for us all to dance! See the Auckland Events page for more details!

Calling from outside New Zealand?

Within NZ the long-distance prefix is 0. Substitute +64 where (0) is shown, + being your international dialling access (often 00).

New Zealand is 12 to 13 hours ahead of UTC. It's safest to ring around sunrise in London, but not much later.

Cultural or community group? We can help you!!

Does your dance group or community have access to tutoring expertise and interesting ethnic or cultural folk dance repertoire, music, or performance choreography?

Have you considered hosting a weekend event in your community open to enthusiastic folk dancers from around NZ, keen to meet with other folk dancers, learn about diverse folk dance styles, and gain new repertoire?
