Ballroom Dance Teachers

Keri  & Phillip Porter

Keri and Phillip Porter grew up in Wellington. They started dancing together in 1993, later becoming life partners as well! Together they’ve danced across the world, representing New Zealand at the World Amateur Championships and the World Games. Keri and Phillip are previous national dance title holders in multiple styles, and have held numerous regional titles.


In 2009, their son Caleb was born and they made the move from the UK back to Wellington, settling in Island Bay in 2012. Their daughter Ava completed the family.


Keri and Phillip teach Ballroom and Latin American dancing and are keen to bring their knowledge to the Bay community that they love so much.


They'll be teaching a free ballroom lesson at the festival. For more information click here.
