Cruisers celebrate

The Cambridge Cruisers senior top team comprised Warren Barr, Linda May, David Nordell, Irene Barr, Sally West and Jim Berry 

They are the country’s newest rock ‘n’ roll club – and they are dancing up a storm.

Cambridge Cruisers celebrated successes for all its travelling members at the New Zealand  rock n roll dance championships in Whanganui over the Labour Weekend.

Each dancer who competed from the Cambridge club came home with a  medal for placings and/or winning.

“We are the newest Club in New Zealand and most of our dancers were first timers and their very first experience at a national standard event,” club coach Colleen Ryan said.

Cambridge Cruisers had entries in couples, teams and triples and was placed second for best dressed and third for dance in the senior top team section, third best dressed in the senior triples, best dressed and second and fourth in dance for senior same sex.

Members in the Diamond section were placed second in best dressed and fourth in dance, the masters were second best dressed and the novice dancers came home with a best dressed and second in dance award. The other award was a third in best-dressed female.
