Please refer to these sessions as rehearsals at reception so that the studio rent is affordable.  Thank you.

Wellington City Council have mandated injection passes for people wanting to participate in rehearsals in the dance studio at Toi Poneke. Apologies, but you will need to have these available to show staff at reception when you arrive.
