Introduction  

 
Welcome to The Beat ~ New Zealand's Line Dancing Site formerly THE BEAT LINE DANCING MAGAZINE website.

 

Those new to line dancing and those like us who have been dancing for some time now should make this site your first stop.

 

You will find :

   

     Class Listings for Instructors on both the North and South Islands

     Social Event Listings with flyers, programmes and registration forms (when available)

     Top 5 Listings from Instructors around the Country

     Workshop Teaches from both International and Local Choreographers/Instructors

     Feature articles from The Beat Magazine such as Dance Floor Etiquette and a useful guide for Choreographers.

     We shall also in time be adding a Gallery page for some of your social photos,

     As well as an "In Loving Memory" page with photos of some of the wonderful line dancers & instructors we have lost over the years.

     There will also be a look back at The Beat Magazines history including the Beat Awards

 

If you are new to line dancing, the first step is to look at the Class listings for a local class.

Once you have found one, please contact the instructor to check, firstly that the class is still on at the time & location listed and to let them know you are new to Line dancing.

Secondly pop along and start your journey ... you will have a lot of fun and make great friends...it can change your life.
