New Dancers’ Celebration 2023

At the 2023 Wellington Region New Dancers’ Celebration, more than 80 dancers, including 30 newer dancers, took to the floor on 7 October in the Wairarapa College Hall in Masterton.

Hosted by Carterton Club, with former Wellington Region President Elaine Laidlaw as MC, the evening was full of smiles and laughter as the more experienced dancers helped the newer ones enjoy the programme of relatively well-known and easier dances with a scattering of those we’ve not encountered as often.
