AKL Freestyle Rock'n'Roll club is as its name implies, a freestyle
Rock and Roll social dance club. We are a registered
organization. Our main aim is to keep up the friendly,
social atmosphere our club stands for, and to share
the joy of Rock’n’Roll dancing. We operate
on a weekly basis and prior to the social dancing,
we offer ongoing beginners dance classes. On request
we do run Intermediate and Advanced workshops. We
introduce our students to a variety of moves. Some
of these moves originate from, Jive, Swing, Ceroc,
Salsa and of course Rock'n'Roll 50s & 60s style.
AKL Freestyle Rock'n'Roll Club started at the end of February 2007, at the Avondale bowling club, a fantastic venue, with great facilities: Licensed premises, comfortable seating, secure parking, great atmosphere and most important a dynamic dance floor. We have a fantastic team of friendly supporters contributing to our lessons, to make it a great success. We are pleased with the growing attendance of students.
We cater for all age groups and can organize dance partners if needed. Everybody is welcome!
The club organises a wide range of social events such as over night trips to different dances, barbeques, Hangi’s, picnics… We intend to continue organizing these types of social events for our club supporters and are open for any suggestions.
