NZ Medallist of the Year – Wellington April 4th – Cancelled


NZ Open One Dance Championships – Porirua City 30th – 31st May.- Cancelled

It is with regret that we have decided to cancel our competitions due to the uncertain situation with the COVID-19 virus.
We thank you for the support so far and look forward to putting on an even bigger and better event next time.
If the current climate changes for the better then we will let you know about a different date but in the meantime please make sure you block out 5th and 6th June 2021 for the NZ One Dance Championships.
For anyone who has booked flights we know that Air NZ is being very reasonable and is offering flights in credit for cancellations related to COVID-19 or extending their flights to cover the following year.  Please also ensure any hotel bookings are cancelled.
Thank you for your understanding.  Look forward to seeing you all on the dance floor very soon.
