Take some steps to aid winter fitness
Moving experience: Dance is a delightful exercise for both young and old.
By JEFF LILLY
During the winter months, we tend
to be shut indoors and our
opportunities for physical exercise
are a little more restricted. They
don't need to be. A dodgy knee
prevents me from tripping the light
fantastic any more, but I see that
there are plenty of opportunities to
learn a few new dance moves
Dance Waimakariri offers a range
of dance styles for children (specially
choreographed presentation and
performance classes for four to
seven year olds, designed to
introduce children to dance in a fun
and imaginative way), teenagers and
adults. Dance styles offered are:
Jazz is an exciting and energetic
style of dance with a fast tempo. It
involves both loco motor and non-
loco motor movements of a sharp
and explosive nature. Jazz is danced
to pop music and suits keen movers
Ballet is a gentle and graceful
form of dance, which focuses on
body alignments and soft
movement qualities. Classical ballet
combines artistry and technique,
and requires discipline and focus. It
is danced to classically styled music
and suits students with a dream of
dancing like a ballerina.
Contemporary is a unique style of
dance that has great flow in and out
of the floor, and uses both
symmetrical and asymmetrical body
shapes. It is a mix between lyrical
and jazz that has both sudden and
sustained qualities and movements.
Contemporary has stunning arm and
body lines, and explores the use of
different levels and space.
Contemporary is best suited to a

''I am excited to be sharing my
passion for dance with the people of
North Canterbury,'' she says on the
Dance Waimakariri website.
She started dancing when she
was five and has built up a
formidable list of dancing
achievements, here and in Europe,
performing in famous musicals such
as Les Miserables and Cats.

children) are in the capable hands of

High School and also Kaiapoi High

Starting her own dance academy
was a dream come true, and she
works with students of varying
ability and ages (three years to 65).
Enough said. Go and dig those old
dancing shoes out of the attic, and

Make some, buy some - your choice
Come along to the Creative Connect Craft
Market -- a market with a difference. Not only
will there be stalls selling quality handmade
homewares, giftware, jewellery and more, but
you also have the opportunity to try to make
something for yourself.
Perhaps you would like to make a card or
maybe a piece of jewellery over a
complimentary cup of coffee or tea and a bite
to eat? Or perhaps just grab a drink and
browse the stalls, then sit a while and meet
others in the community.
Don't miss this great night out. Entry is free.
This event is being run by Women's
Ministry, Rangiora Baptist Church. Interested
stallholders, please give Suzanna a call on
(03)3133157. Date: May 31, 6.30pm --
9.00pm. Venue: Rangiora Baptist Church,
111 East Belt.

The Golden Gloves will
once again be up for grabs
very soon, at the Kaiapoi
Working Men's Club.
More than 100 South Island
amateur boxers have entered
this weekend's 2013 South
Island Golden Gloves.
The event is being hosted
for the first time by the
Waikuku Boxing Club, itself
achieving an excellent
success rate since its
inception in 2002 with a
handful of Golden Glove titles
already on the honours list.
Waikuku coach Nick
Watson said the club was very
excited about hosting the
premier event for amateur
boxing in the South Island.
He said it was the first time
the event had been held in
Kaiapoi and the first time
in a long time it had been
held in Canterbury.
Winning a Golden Gloves
title is quite a remarkable
achievement and all the
fighters know the history and
the honour that comes
Several senior elite fighters
have recently retired from the
Waikuku Club after several
years of service.
Two of those, Sam
McArthur and Daniel Devlin,
were nationally ranked and
had fought at multiple
It is not known how many
fighters from Waikuku will
take the ring. Getting fights is
not easy for young athletes,
but it is hoped four or five
fighters will be entered.
