Rumours are rife about which local community heroes will be hitting the dance floor for Dancing for Life Education on Saturday 14th November.

All dancers involved are local community heroes with no previous dance experience. They will sacrifice several months of their personal time training to perfect their performances, ready to wow an audience come event night.

Event Organiser Jo Finlay from Proevents says that while many of the dancers have now been shoulder tapped, there will still be an opportunity for any person interested to potentially take part.

Mrs Finlay says nominations for both men and women will be taken via Radio 1XX from 2-12th June. “Simply head to the Dancing for Life Ed EBOP Facebook page and say who they think should take part and why.

People can nominate themselves or others.” The weblink is

All nominees must be over 18 years and have no dance experience. The successful couple will be tutored by professional dance teachers and on completion, will take to the stage in this fun and exciting black-tie event on November 14th

Tickets for the event will go on sale in August and all proceeds will benefit Life Education Trust EBOP, a charity that has been educating New Zealand children for over 30 years.
