New Dancers’ Celebration 2019

The Wellington Region New Dancers’ Celebration on 12 October at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua was a lot of fun, with a festive atmosphere and a great turnout from Johnsonville.

Sixteen of our first and second year dancers attended, supported by fifteen of our experienced dancers, plus Hilary in the band.

Rod and Jeanette had prepared us well. Quite a few of our new dancers also took advantage of the two Region preparation sessions taken by Maureen Robson who was MC for the evening.

Thank you for the great effort by Tawa Club in organising such a successful event.

It was fantastic to see 18 sets of dancers up and enjoying their dancing to rousing music by Aileen, Don, Hilary and Terry.

Events like this give us the opportunity to catch up with dancing friends.

It was a pleasure to chat with with Johnsonville past secretary John Munro, and to see past members Judy and Don Keating amongst the dancers.

Thank you to John Patterson for his photos of the evening. Click here to see more of the fun our dancers had
