An­other shop gone from CBD

An­other site has be­come va­cant in the Porirua CBD with Ex­treme Dance mov­ing to Pare­mata.

The dance stu­dio, run by Emma John­son and John Linkhorn, used to be above the iSite in Cob­ham Court.

How­ever, ow­ing to changes in the city cen­tre and a plan to de­mol­ish the sec­tion of the build­ing the dance stu­dio used, the move, which oc­curred on Jan­uary 30, had to hap­pen.

Di­rec­tor John Linkhorn said the move came af­ter 15 years of be­ing in the CBD lo­ca­tion, but it was a fan­tas­tic day and was a great way to in­tro­duce the new stu­dio.

Ex­treme Dance now op­er­ates from 5 Pare­mata Cres, Pare­mata.

‘‘We’re ex­cited to be in a fan­tas­tic lo­ca­tion in Pare­mata, and it was great to have so many fam­i­lies come and be part of our open day,’’ Linkhorn said.

Vis­i­tors were able to tour the newly re­fur­bished 600 squareme­tre com­plex, which in­cludes four sound­proof dance stu­dios with fully sprung floors.

Guests were treated to per­for­mances by stu­dents who had just re­turned from the na­tional dance cham­pi­onships in Aus­tralia and a per­for­mance by Ex­treme Dance’s new hip-hop tu­tor, Shae King.

Kirsten Ocampo is one of many su­per­stars to have been through Ex­treme Dance.
