Stu­dents dance away the hol­i­days

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

A three day Scot­tish coun­try danc­ing camp was held in Mata­mata over the week­end, with Mata­mata’s Olivia Kneebone, 10, the only lo­cal to take part.

The Hin­uera School stu­dent has been danc­ing for six years and said she loves it.

Olivia said the camps were great be­cause she wasn’t the only one do­ing Scot­tish danc­ing and she could talk to other peo­ple who knew what they were do­ing.

Olivia goes to lessons once a week in Toko­roa and spent last Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day at the Hop­pi­ton Jam Camp learn­ing a range of dances and at­tend­ing mu­sic work­shops.

Stu­dents at­tended the camp, held at To­tara Springs and var­i­ous halls around Mata­mata, from places as far away as Christchurch and Welling­ton.
