A wintery weekend in Hanmer Springs

Over 90 dancers from Waipu in the north to Dunedin in the south, made the trip to the Nelson/Marlborough Region Weekend School from 23-25 July 2021. See what Loralee has to say about this fun-filled and lively gathering

July Tartan Night: A Cold Night, a Warm Hall

It was a cold night (3 degrees outside!), but after our standard warm-up, followed by Galloway House and The Campbells are Coming, we were well warmed and set for a night of dancing fun. Find out more about this winter evening

Mid-Winter Christmas Celebration

Khandallah: First Tartan Night

Our Tartan Night on 19 April in the Khandallah Town Hall was a great ‘first’, and we can only hope all our future tartan nights in our new club home are such tartan-filled, sociable, and fun evenings. See more about this fine night of dancing

Deborah Shuker: Pipes in the Park

Held in brilliant Wellington weather at Waitangi Park on Saturday 27 February, Pipes in the Park was a day of piping, highland dancing, Irish dancing, clan and food stalls – and of course some Scottish Country Dancing. See more about this event

‘Bowling’ into the new year

Saturday 30 January was our seventh ‘bowling ceilidh’. Once again the weather favoured us and we had a grand time – on the bowling green, on the dance floor, and at our pot luck dinner. Find out more here
