Matamata Chronicle - - News - By MERE­ANA AUSTIN

Come Dancing Mata­mata want more lo­cals to waltz down to the Me­mo­rial Cen­tre.

The non profit or­gan­i­sa­tion holds a dance four times a year with the next one be­ing held May 31.

Pres­i­dents of Come Dancing Mata­mata, Loma and Nor­man Bar­ron and com­mit­tee mem­bers Ge­orge Theobald, Ja­nine Turner, Doug Caird, Lila Walker and Mar­ian Bel­lamy said the dances are for ev­ery­one.

‘‘You can even bring your chil­dren,’’ Mr Caird said.

‘‘ Some 15- year- olds from Aus­tralia came with their grand­par­ents and loved it.’’

There will be four dances this year. The first one was held in March which Mrs Bar­ron said was ex­cel­lent.

Many dancers from sur­round­ing districts joined in on the fun, with people com­ing from as far as Whakatane.

‘‘ But more people from Mata­mata, that is what we need,’’ Mr Bar­ron said.

Line dancing, the waltz and the fox­trot are just a few dances people can the night.

People with all dif­fer­ent lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ences are in­vited.

‘‘The com­mit­tee look af­ter new folk and make them feel wel­come,’’ Mrs Turner said.
