About us

Based in Christchurch, Jolt has been a pioneer of inclusive dance in Aotearoa for 23 years, creating opportunities for people with a diverse range of intellectual disabilities to participate in dance programmes that challenge a deficit view of disability and which empower our dancers to assert their artistic uniqueness.

Engaging with over 180 dancers of all ages, Jolt offers a broad range of weekly classes, at both a community level, as well as those specialising in performance, leadership and teaching.

Our performance programme this year, amongst other things, sees Jolt dancers performing with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Music New Zealand, at the Off-Centre Festival and at the biennial international inclusive dance festival “Gathered Together” in Glasgow in September.

The Move programme, offering opportunities for leadership and employment is central to Jolt’s strategic vision and is the only teacher training programme for dancers with intellectual disabilities in Aotearoa. Our Move tutors co-teach in weekly Jolt classes, including 5 as sole teachers. Move tutors also teach workshops in mainstream schools, tertiary institutions, and community hubs, connecting with diverse communities to engage in dance in a way that is unique.
