was raised to help Rotorua Community Hospice care for 420 patients living with a life-limiting illness in the next year
He aha te mea nui o te ao – He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
This is a true community event – from our audience, to our wonderful group of sponsors who donate goods, time and services, to our committed volunteers and of course, our dancers. We simply thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this night possible. The money raised will
go towards providing care and support to anyone with a life limiting illness in the Rotorua Community.
We pair twenty local identities together that have little or no dance experience. Following 15 weeks of professional training, we host a one-night-only show where the ten couples perform their choreographed dance routine. Four celebrity judges score each couple, deciding on two finalists and eventually, an overall winner. Throughout the evening, there is additional entertainment and a live and silent auction.
The overall goal is to raise vital funds to ensure Rotorua Community Hospice can provide free-of-charge care to anyone with a life-limiting illness.
