Hazel Barrer hails from OMJ and Fevah in Christchurch and has been teaching modern jive for almost ten years. She has danced lots of different styles, but loves the flexibility and the friendships modern jive brings. Hazel and the amazing Chch crew have been working hard to develop a smooth dance where lead and follow participate in the conversation.

Thomas Sturman represents ye old OMJ Fevah since its creation. His two main styles are Modern Jive and West Coast Swing. He loves using concepts from both styles to compliment the other. Thomas enjoys playing with the three forms of connection(song, partner, floor) and creating unique dances from them. He has travelled to competitions in America, Australia and New Zealand and learns something different from every event.
