NBS Nelson Dancing for a Cause is a fundraiser packed with glamour, fun and competition.

Nelson Dancing for a Cause is a Charitable Trust Board with its Trustees volunteering their time and working tirelessly with many other individuals and organisations in the Nelson/Tasman regions. The aim is to put on a spectacular show every two years and most importantly, to raise much needed funds for amazing local charities and organisations. It is supporting the Nelson Tasman Hospice in 2021.

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 sees another eight local personalities partnered each with a trained ballroom dancer. Each will perform a ballroom dance in front of a panel of judges in an attempt to be declared the Nelson Dancing for a Cause winner!

Ros 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.
