Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 1st-Saturday 2nd October 2021
Highland Dancers from throughout NZ will gather in Nelson to compete for the title of Highland Dancer of the Year. For highland dancers nationally it offers the opportunity to compete for a prestigious national title across eight different age groups from the youngest dancers in the 6 years and under class through to the senior dancers in the 18 years and over section. This is a unique innovation in New Zealand. For the local Nelson highland dancers it will give them the chance to see and compete with the top national talent.
The competition is run over two days with dancers each performing between 3 and 10 dances in their age group. The event will be held at the Theatre Royal and admission will be free. This offers the Nelson public the chance to attend a national event free of charge as well as promoting highland dance within the area.
