Nelson Dancing for a Cause is a Charitable Trust Board with it’s Trustees volunteering their time and working tirelessly with many other individuals and organisations in the Nelson/Tasman regions. Their aim is to put on a spectacular show every two years and most importantly, to raise needed funds for amazing local charities and organisations. We are supporting the Nelson Tasman Hospice in 2020.
Dancing for a Cause held its first event in May 2018 to a sold-out crowd at Nelson’s Trafalgar Centre, raising $111,000 for Nelson Tasman Hospice.
Our 2020 event sees another eight local personalities partnered each with a trained ballroom dancer. They will perform a ballroom dance in front of a panel of judges on the 23rd May 2020 in order to be declared the Nelson Dancing for a Cause winner!
Roz Pochin, a Nelson breast surgeon, with partner Anthony Hewson, took to the stage donned in a sparkling dress, performed the samba and became the first to win the title of Nelson Dancing for a Cause champion.
Who will become the next Champion?
