2020 Senior Nationals

It is with deepest regret that the National Executive of the NZARRA and the host club Whakatane announce that the Senior National Championship, scheduled to take place in Whakatane at Labour Weekend, is unable to proceed.

The ongoing level of uncertainty about covid-19, together with concerns for how we move out of lockdown, and ability to travel make this decision necessary. The difficulty of partnerships getting together, the lack of availability of practise venues, and a shortened preparation time is to the detriment of dancers presenting their best efforts.   Our primary concern remains the safety of our dancers, clubs and support teams.

We appreciate your disappointment at this news and know that you will be anxious to return to dancing as soon as possible.  

Please keep yourselves and your bubble safe and we look forward to being able to meet together and dance soon.

Kindest regards 

Nola Calvert
