Rock ‘n’ Roll dreams come true

Anna Hastings and Joel Armstrong danced their way to first place at the NZ Amateur Rock ‘n’ Roll Association Senior Championships.

Cambridge Cruisers Rock ‘n’ Roll club dancers Anna Hastings and Joel Armstrong cleaned up at the NZ Amateur Rock ‘n’ Roll Association Senior Championships October 20-21, winning the novice best dressed and taking out first place in dancing.

Colleen Ryan from the club said that the novice is a category for people who have never competed at a Nationals before and is a very competitive section. “It takes a lot of courage to go onto the floor and dance in front of 900 people and perform well.  Cambridge took a small contingent to the event and we are so proud to put Cambridge out there in our national line up,” she said.

Anna also danced with another combination from Tokoroa in Senior Triples and took out first place in both the best dressed and dancing categories there as well.

Cambridge is a newly formed Club with a focus on having fun, being social and learning dance for all levels and new people are welcome every week.

Cambridge Cruisers Rock ‘n’ Roll wants to grow the opportunity for children to take part, running junior lessons on Thursdays from 6pm.
