About Us

We believe life’s better when your feet are moving and the music’s playing.

Social Dance brings people together and creates unforgettable moments. Seeing the skill of other dancers, feeling the joy of movement, and being inspired to learn and improve. It all starts when you dance.

As dancers ourselves, we’ve always enjoyed the communal aspect of dance. You may remember the original Where To Dance newsletter, which brought dancers together and provided a regular snapshot of the scene. We loved that newsletter and were sad when it ceased publication. So we decided to revive its spirit.

We’re here for everyone in the New Zealand dance scene – novices and pros, individuals and businesses. Take advantage of our listings to find out what’s on or to promote your services.

New Web Manager - Angelique Meyer has been teaching modern jive for over thirty years and has competed at advanced level in New Zealand and Australia. She first learned the jive at London’s legendary Pineapple Dance Studios, and brought it to New Zealand in 1988. She specialises in teaching beginners. The jive is her secret to aging well. In her words: “Where to Dance was much beloved by our social dance community, and well, I missed it and the opportunities it provided. So I landed up taking on Where to Dance in 2021.”

Founder - Kay Lindley created Where to Dance in January 2005. She has said, "I have danced ever since I could walk and have lately been frustrated because I couldn't find just one website to get all the information I needed about social dance in Auckland, so I started one".
