The MEDANZ Festival
The MEDANZ festival is a celebration of all things belly dance, and is held over a weekend, each year in April.
Festival currently provides 3-4 days of workshops in dance, drumming and related topics, a theatre show, shopping area, Hafla and lots of opportunities to socialise and network with dancers from all over New Zealand.
Workshops span a wide spectrum of levels, with classes being available for beginners through to more advanced dancers. Most workshops offered are taught by New Zealand teachers, however MEDANZ also aims to bring an international teacher to festival each year.
These festival pages provide you with the information on how the festival began, who it is for, as well as options to place feedback or share your festival photos online.
