Dancing for a Cause

27 May 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

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 2023.

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.

The 2021 event, with the support of the amazing Nelson community, raised an astonishing $248,000. Thank you to the eight contestants and Nelson!

The 2023 event sees ten local personalities partnered each with a trained ballroom dancer. The contestants will perform a ballroom dance in front of a panel of judges and live audience in an attempt to be declared the Nelson Dancing for a Cause winner!

Who will become the next Champion?

Make sure you are there on the night to find out.
