Manawatu Guardian - - FRONT PAGE - By MERA­NIA KA­RAU­RIA

Dance schools from around the Manawatu will be show­cas­ing their dance styles at the Re­gent on Broad­way.

The Palmer­ston North Dance As­so­ci­a­tion (PNDA) says Dance 2018 will bring 12 dance schools to­gether for the 3pm, June 17 per­for­mance. Nine are from Palmer­ston North, two from Levin and one from Feild­ing.

Also per­form­ing at Dance 2018 are lo­cal dancers who re­ceived Per­form­ing Arts Com­pe­ti­tion As­so­ci­a­tion of NZ (PACANZ) nom­i­na­tions to com­pete at the Na­tional Young Per­former awards in Palmer­ston North from 19-21 Oc­to­ber.

PNDA pres­i­dent Maryanne Mechan said Michelle Robin­son is the Dance 2018 con­venor and dance teacher rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the com­mit­tee who has been re­spon­si­ble for li­ais­ing with the dancers.

“This year will be our con­cert and next year there will be work­shops.”

Maryanne added that Dance 2018 is non-com­pet­i­tive.
