About Us | Addiction Dance

We’re Will and Tina Karl and we are the owners of Addiction Dance. We met at a Modern Jive class 17 years ago – and just like the ad says, we loved it so much we bought the company!

Will and Tina have three school age children, all of whom are part of the Addiction Dance family – they love to come and watch classes or get dressed up for special events like the Dance Champs and Christmas Dance party.

Will was a typical kiwi bloke – played rugby, worked in engineering, and initially only went along to a dance class with a mate who didn’t want to go along on his own. He saw what it was about and was hooked right from the start.

“Anyone can learn to dance, and our job is to make you feel as relaxed as possible. We know it can be scary coming along to try something new, and we do all we can to make every class a fun and enjoyable experience for you.’’

A medical laboratory scientist by profession, Tina is passionate about dancing and has dabbled in lots of different dance styles including tap, hip hop and ballroom dancing.

‘’Being able to dance is an awesome skill. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done it before, or even if you want to come along on your own. We promise you will have a great time – it’s a great way to get fit, have fun and meet people.”
