Shakedown 2017

Were back!!

We had such a blast in Nelson for the annual Shakedown Dance Competition! This our biggest Zion trip so far and we took 9 crews away with us. It was such an awesome weekend and all the dancers were outstanding!

The long hours and hardwork that go into putting these trips together are incredible and we thank everyone who has helped make this happen! A huge shout out to all the dancers/teachers who worked many many hours on their craft- it really showed on stage.

This was our last competition of the year and we are honoured to have ended on such a high note. Keep following our website for updates as the year comes to a close! A special congratulations to Swarm Studios who did so well over the weekend- love that we can represent Christchurch together.

Over the weekend we had crews from all over New Zealand come to our hometown to compete in the NZCAF Finals! We are so priveleged to have this opportunity in our own city! We were lucky enough to have 3 of our crews compete and qualify for the National Champs! We had Shutter, Focus and High Definition compete in the Varsity and Junior Section.

It was such an awesome night to showcase what Zion Advanced crews/teachers had produced for the term. High Definition took out 4th Place in the junior division and performed at such a high level! So proud of our little ones!

Focus took out the Bronze Medal in the senior section and have been working hard on this set for a long time!

For the second year in a row Shutter took out first place AND Most Outstanding Crew Award! What an amazing achievement they have all made!

A big shoutout to Sarah, Setu and Matilda who lead these 3 crews, we are more than excited for the future that these young dancers have.

Stay tuned for how these crews (plus 6 more) do up in Nelson for Shakedown Dance Competition- held this weekend!
