Kia ora! Nau mai, haere mai! and Welcome

We will be running this year’s Championship as long as the COVID-19 alert level remains at level 1.  Please note that COVID tracing will still be required and we encourage the use of good hand hygiene.

We’re excited to be bringing you the 70th championship event, being held on Labour Weekend (24 – 25 October 2020) at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua, Wellington.

Rich in history and with national titles up for grabs, this is the main event on the  New Zealand dance-sport calendar.

We are proud to run this event under the Freedom to Dance banner.   

If you’re involved in dance or just love to watch it, you’ll want to join us for two days of spectacular dancing across all three styles of dance-sport: Ballroom, New Vogue and Latin American.

We will be running a workshop on the 26th of October at the venue.  Information on this is still coming….but it should be exciting news!!!

This competition will run under the rules of the New Zealand Recreational Dance Inc. (NZRDI)  

Hei konā mai!
