Social Pin to Silver Bar medals

Also on Saturday, 14 November, we have people dancing almost 40 Social Pin to Silver Bar medals. The dancing will take place in our Commerce St Studio between 1pm and 4pm. You're welcome to attend these medals too, at no cost, to support your fellow dancers. If you're one of the medallists, we look forward to welcoming your friends and family.

A note for medallists: The schedule has been confirmed, and your start times and the person you'll be dancing with will be posted on the noticeboard in the Commerce St Studio this week. We'll also have a copy of the schedule for dancers in the Fraser Tech Clubrooms.


Congratulations to Nationals dancers

A massive shout out to the Footwork couples who competed in the NZ Open Dance Championships - better known as Nationals - over Labour Weekend. 

Brett and Emma (Latin), Craig and Marion (Latin), and Stuart and Suzanne (New Vogue and Ballroom) did a fantastic job and we posted their great results - as well as some shaky photos - on our Facebook page during the competition.

Well done also to the other Hamilton-based couples who are familiar faces to Footwork dancers: Paul and Kathryne; Bradley and his Auckland-based partner, Felicity; Jan and Fleur; Harvey and Lyn; Leandrie and her Auckland-based partner, Anthony; Steve and Trudy; and Stuart and Sue.


You're awesome!

We already knew the dancers in our studio are awesome, and now everybody else does too! Organisers of Nationals sung the praises of Footwork dancers who volunteered their time to support the event over the Labour Weekend competition. And well done to the organiser Doug Pouwhare, who did such a stunning job it's been decided Hamilton will host the event again next year. So pop it into your diaries!

There's been plenty more messages of thanks for you guys since the event, with Doug and Karen supplying a basket of lollies and handwritten cards, which we know you'll have appreciated. And just in this week, a thank you card (pictured) from Australian-based dance professionals, Ian and Cushla Gillard, who said "without exception, you were all awesome".
