Had a wonderful weekend in Tauranga at Tanya's Ascent Training Tauranga.
The Open Dance Floor was abuzz with dance and bling and I was happy to perform in front of such a lovely crowd.
Lovely to catch up with friends and meet new ones and a great way to end the day after workshop drills and thrills.
3 workshops over the weekend provided a great all round workout combined with the joy of dance.
