Johnsonville Annual Dance 2017
It was a much less grand affair than last year’s big celebration of 50 Golden Years of association with the RSCDS, held in Karori Recreation Centre’s splendidly large hall. That didn’t stop this year’s dance being a really fun and laughter-filled night of dance and music.
