NDN 20th Anniversary Celebrations
Northern Dance Network, the forerunner of DANZ in Auckland, celebrates 20 years of activity and advocacy in dance. We invite the public to come and help us celebrate the ideas and energy many people have contributed to NDN which has made Auckland the flourishing city of dance that it is.
NDN’s mission is “All kinds of dance for all kinds of people,” and the current focus is on youth through the very successful YouDance Auckland Youth Dance Festival that has now been running for seven years. A new focus is now being created, catering for Seniors 65 and over.
For many years NDN curated the dance programme of the Parnell Festival of Roses where many community and ethnic dance groups had a chance to perform. “Chance to Dance” days made it possible for the public to enjoy an introduction to different styles of dance for free or very little cost.
NDN also established the very first Auckland Dance Festival in 2000 which eventually became the Tempo Dance Festival which you all know and love.
