Dance NZ Made Nationals
A great few days of absolutely incredible dancing in Palmerston North. Over 45 troupes competed. Unfortunately our Jazz troupe didn’t place but they did receive extremely high scores.
Our soloists Kaylee Marjoribanks and Sammy Irwin also danced their hearts out.
Holly Marjoribanks and Sammy managed a 4th place for their duo.
