Kia ora! Nau mai, haere mai! and Welcome

We’re excited to be bringing you the 69th championship event, being held on Labour Weekend (26 – 27 October 2019) 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 are extremely excited to present an exciting dance showcase featuring
three of Australasia’s leading professional couples.

Steven Grinbergs and Rachelle Plaass (Standard – Australia)

Stefano Olivieri and Jessica Prince (New Vogue – Australia)

Sigurdur Thor Sigurdsson and Annalisa Zoanetti (Latin American – Iceland)

This is going to be an amazing showpiece. 

In addition they will be running a workshop on Monday October 28 (Labour Day).

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

Hei konā mai!
