Lower Hutt Annual Dance: Dancing with Momentum

Ten Johnsonville members danced at the Lower Hutt Dance on 3 September, plus club musician Aileen who was on stage playing accordion, along with member Hilary. Find out more about the dance including the complicated Momentum

Annual Dance: Well worth the wait!

After two years of our Annual Dance being cancelled due to covid, it was third time lucky this year. It was wonderful to welcome six sets of dancers to the Johnsonville-Capital City Combined Annual Dance

Levin Annual Dance

Levin Club has only 24 members but they put on a great annual dance on Sunday afternoon, 17 July, even though they don’t have a local tutor! See more about this dance in the beautiful and atmospheric Ōhau Hall

A Mid-Winter Summer Social

It’s not easy to dress for ‘Summer’ in the middle of winter, but that’s what we asked members to do for this year’s mid-winter social event. Find out about the fun and laughter (and food) of this festive event

Winter Dancing Fun

The 2022 winter Scottish Country Dancing ‘season’ is getting going, with club dances every second or third weekend. See more about the dances we’ve been to up to early July

June Tartan Night: A lively evening

It was satisfying to have our second Tartan Night for the year go ahead as planned, on the original date of 27 June, with all band members present, the MC on deck, and most members able to attend. Find out more about this lively night of dancing

Kelburn’s Farewell

Kelburn Club held its final dance on Sunday 19 June, as the club is closing after more than sixty years due to a decline in numbers. Fourteen Johnsonville members were there in support including John Homes, a former member of Kelburn. Find out more about this celebratory event

Capital City’s Birthday Night

Capital City’s 2022 birthday night had an appealing programme combining old favourites, two more recent dances by Wellington devisers, and one less well-known dance with a bit more challenge. See more about this fun evening

Tawa’s Hall Warming

On 19 May, Tawa invited other clubs to join them to celebrate their move to a new venue. Find out more about their special hall warming evening

Ngaio celebrated their Annual Dance on 14 May, the first in the Wellington Region’s dancing calendar for 2022. See more about this splendid evening of dancing and how Ngaio made us feel very welcome

Ngaio: The first Annual Dance of 2022

April Tartan Night

We had a fine night of dancing on Monday 11 April to music from Aileen, Hilary and Jason, with plenty of tartan on display and Rod as ‘masked man’ briefing through his Covid mask. Find out more about our first Tartan Night for 2022

St Patrick’s Day Celebration

Our St Patrick’s Day celebration on 21 March was the first club event of 2022. Dancers really got into the spirit of St Patrick and the Emerald Isle, each wearing their own shade of green. See more about the fun we had and the special programme
